In Reply to: Happy Birthday in Greek (please help!) posted by The girlfriend on August 27, 2001 at 17:55:14:
I have it from two greek sources - one a senior citizen and the other in her late thirties - that the normal spelling (in english) would be xrona pola. . . . the x sufficing for the chr, or the h'r. My father pronounced it as though it were the h'r. It would be really special if you could have a baker (bakery) script it in Classic greek font.
: Hoping someone can help! My baker won't/can't write Happy Birthday on my boyfriend's birthday cake in Greek script so I am resorting to a transliteral approach. But it seems to be spelled a lot of different ways. Which would be most correct (I know none is strictly correct- that requires a Greek alphabet):
: xhronia/chronia/h'ronia/kronia polla/pola
: Many thanks!!
