not to do so since you probably wouldn't get an exact and correct
Quenya or Sindarin translation.

link to a .zip file where you can find a .pdf keyboard:
If you wouldn't be able to do it yourself, here is the instruction -
type these keys into your Word Editor (either in the Tengwar Font
directly or in a Latin font and then turning it to the Tengwar font):
(it is possible that there is another sign on the key 3 on your
keyboard, so to have the A, press 'shift 3').
I suppose that your name is *pronounced* as [radzhif]:
R as in English ROCK
A as in English LUCK
J as in English JACK
I as in English HIT*
V as in English FIT
That's also why I used the F Tengwar sign (formen) in the end and
anga for J (as in English).
*I don't know whether the I in your name in not long (i.e. as in
English HEAT), then it would be: 7s#~Be
Hope this helps.
