My name in Hebrew, revised

A Jewish friend showed me a Website that listed Richard as being written this way in Hebrew:

רכרד

Hebrew, though, doesn’t have a “ch” sound, as in Richard, so the above would be pronounced “Rikard”. In Hebrew, they transliterate the “ch” sound by adding a short vertical dash after the Tsadi letter, which itself is pronounced “ts”.

Below, I’m told, is how Richard would be completely transliterated into Hebrew:

ריצ׳רד
