This is my first time posting here, so I hope I'm not breaking any rules by asking this or asking something monotonous.
I've recently started learning Korean, with the help of this site and numerous other resources, and I'm finding myself falling more and more in love with the Korean language and culture. I think I may be driving my parents a little mad, what with constantly using what Korean I've learned so far and starting to cook a lot of Korean-influenced dishes at home. However, there's one step I hadn't taken until now, and would like to do so.
Essentially, I'm trying to find/ create a Korean name for myself. Unfortunately, though, I know noone in real life who is Korean or has Korean heritage, so I haven't been able to really get any advice or input. All I know is a few component translations (ie meanings of things like 'Min' and 'Sun' etc), but not enough to really help. I don't really want a direct translation of my name in terms of a soundalike, I'm more looking for something either with a similar meaning or a name that has meaning for me, but my name doesn't seem to have a Korean equivalent.
My English name is Nicola (pronounced 'NI-Kuh-la' for those unfamiliar with the name)and comes from a Greek name meaning 'Victory of the people'. This doesn't seem to be a popular name meaning for girls in Korea, which I can understand since victory tends to be more a male concept, so I'm a little stuck. I don't mind names that don't really have a connection to my English name, since I've never really found it to suit me anyway, but if anyone can help me choose one, or create one, I'd be extremely grateful.
