As an absolute last resort -- no fooling around -- I mean it -- this is legal only after you've exhausted all other options -- if you find yourself facing a totally nonsensical name, you may transliterate it phonetically. You'll notice that the .gif file for each glyph has a name. In order to transcribe a meangless sound, you simple find a glyph that begins rather like the name you're trying to spell. When that runs out, find another glyph, and so on.
Now, in that example, I've chosen a string of fairly innocuous glyphs, the type a newspaper might use, but obviously, if you're trying to insult sombody, you could select more offensive glyphs.
Or if you actually like the guy, you could build a sequence using strong, manly glyphs.
