      The person who had told you this was correct.

      You don't need to translate your name - actually, it is much better
      not to do so since you probably wouldn't get an exact and correct
      Quenya or Sindarin translation.

      It's the same as you would type the letters yourself. Here is the
      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.
