Convert Name to Math Symbols

    How do I convert a word or name to math symbols?

    E.g. the letter N can be converted to ℕ (all natural numbers), the letter Z can be converted to the letter ℤ (set of integers), and the letter R converted to ℝ (all real numbers).

    Basically, I want to convert someone's name into math symbols for a birthday card ... :D. Is there some kind of chart or easy reference table?

    Hi Qube! :smile:

    [itex]\forall[/itex], ℂ, ∂, ∃, ∫, [itex]\hbar,\ \cap[/itex], ∅, ∏, [itex]\perp,\ \cup[/itex], ∑, [itex]\otimes[/itex] :wink:

    (and greek letters always look good)

    If you told us what the name was it might be easier
