My Baybayin signature

I was having a conversation with Ray of about how we use Baybayin instead of our western signature. It got me thinking how one would go about “legally” changing your signature if needed. The list of signature major updates would be banks, credit cards, drivers license and passport. The tough part when writing your signature in Baybayin is doing it fast in a cursive way and not picking up the pen.

Cursive style

You could actually do away with the kudlits as it’s not meant to have all the characters just like when you sign your name with the Roman alphabet.

Writing each character would be equivalent to printing each character when signing in the Roman alphabet.

  1. I don’t think there would be any legal problem, would there? Many people already have a personal scribble that doesn’t look like any known writing system. The only danger with using an ornate baybayin signature is that people might think you’re a doctor. ; )

  2. I’m getting a tattoo tomorrow…but I just want to make sure I am doing this right. Please let me know how Ayden Daniel will look like in baybayin and i will compare it to what I have to know if I’m doing this right. Thanks!


  3. I can read Baybayin without any help from the transliterations from the Alphabet, As long it’s my handwritting and written it properly.

    Look at this. My name in the script
    Baybayin: ᜃ᜔ᜇᜒᜐ᜔ᜆᜒᜌᜈ᜔ ᜀᜎ᜔ᜃᜈ᜔ᜆᜇ
    Transliteration: k-ri-s-ti-yan a-l-ka-n-ta-ra
    Keyboard code k=ris=tiyn= al=kn=tr

    NOTE: To see the Baybayin make sure you install a Baybayin font.
