About me

This is how I looked like sometime in the past.


My name is Bence Forrás, the "correct" pronunciation of which is [ˈbɛnt͡sɛ ˈforːaːʃ].

This form follows Western name order, as is common for Hungarian names when used outside of Hungary. In Hungarian, I still use Eastern name order, i.e. Forrás Bence.

I prefer keeping the acute in Forrás whenever possible, which should be almost always given that we live in age of Unicode. However, if only basic Latin characters may be used, the preferred transliteration is Forras.
