It's actually my name in Japanese, using their kind of ”alphabet” –
every character is a sound, in most cases a consonant followed by a
vowel, I think in my case it's something like ”Jony Rosenbaga”, but
it's the closest you'll get in Japanese, I think. I don't speak or
write Japanese at all, even though I would like to learn – I just
entered my name in Google translate (Swedish–Japanese) and copied the
result to a phrase in AutoKey, which is a text expansion/replacement
utility for Linux and X11, so all I do to type my signature is to type
”kregj”… I also use my own keyboard layout, but that's maybe a
different story…

Kind regards
