Chinese id-iom

Morning all!
I had our name translated into Cantonese by a friend and wanted to give it a little outing. As it translates phonetically it translates into something like Yi Doh. Apparently the first character ┬ácan mean ‘meaningful’ or even ‘graffiti art’ and the second character means ‘capital’ (as in city) which applies to London whilst also retaining the ‘D’ sound from id-iom. Blue is also meant to be an auspicious colour. So it’s all good!

Title: Yi Doh
