When I was learning about Katakana, one of it’s usages was said to be for names. Does this apply only for non-japanese names? I mean a person’s name.
I’ve seen japanese people (especially online, like on Mastodon) have hiragana names. Or are those named after japanese words that I don’t know yet? Like english speakers would give theirselves nicknames derived from words? Like
PizzaBoy9000? (wow, I’m really bad at naming things)
I think I’m fundamentally asking: How does naming work (kana/kanji-wise) in Japanese pop and online culture?
