    Please do my name next; I would like to learn the Japanese pronunciation and possibly different translation.

      of Li as seen in the middle of my symbol. If you know the Kanji to Vicarious, that would be cool as well.

        Well, your kanji symbols right there say “tree child.” The Japanese pronunciation of Li would be converted to リ, which in Katakana can be read as Ri or Li because Japanese R’s and L’s in Japanese are very similar.

        For Vicarious, some symbols are shown in the link below.


        If you want the Katakana reading, my guess would be something like: ヴァイケリエス (Vaikeriesu).
