It also happens that there are quite a few Japanese people who have katakana in their names, especially really old Japanese ladies.
That's new to me too... Would you mind telling us the history behind those ladies having katakana in their names?

I want to write秘意多
秘 = (HI) Secret (Can we read it as PI anyone?)
意 = (I) Ideas, meaning
多 = (TA) Many
Does anyone know if this is okay? Or does it make him a heater?
I don't think 秘 is pronounced as [pi] when it starts a word... In Chinese, Peter is written as 彼得
