    Name Conjugator

    One of the dreaded aspects of many languages is learning how to conjugate verbs, so I thought of a way to make it fun. Take a name you like that has an ending which is a valid infinitive form in a language you know (or are studying) and "conjugate" the name.

    For example, let's "conjugate" Tyler in French using the present tense (which is being covered in Molly's French thread):

    Tyle
    Tyles
    Tyle
    Tylons
    Tylez
    Tylent

    Oh my goodness, this is so brilliant! Why has no one ever done this before?!

    I want to do a boys' name and a girls' name, too.

    Spencer:

    Je spence
    Tu spences
    Il/elle/on spence
    Nous spencons (would technically be spençons?)
    Vous spencez
    Ils/elles spencent

    Winter:

    Je winte
    Tu wintes
    Il/ell/on winte
    Nous wintons
    Vous wintez
    Ils/elles wintent



    Would Amir be

    Je amis
    Tu amis
    Il/elle/on amit
    Nous amisissons
    Vous amisissez
    Ils/elles amisissent?

    @ash: the Amir one is really cute to me because the je and tu version mean friends in French, I just think that's quite sweet.
