Caution: The subject of this article is nonstandard and will not be understood by most speakers.
It is recommended to familiarize yourself with the standard style, and to be informed and selective about which nonstandard styles you adopt.

In sitelen pona, name glyphs are special glyphs which represent personal names instead of words. Unlike standard names in cartouches, many name glyphs do not indicate pronunciation.

List of name glyphs[edit | edit source]

This is a list of name glyphs present in any font. These glyphs are not included in the UCSUR. Therefore, they can only be typed using Private Use Area (PUA) codepoints, zero-width joiner (ZWJ) sequences of other codepoints (mainly but not all sitelen pona), or OpenType ligatures.
