This language is read from right to left. Traditional written Japanese is done in columns which you read from the top to the bottom and from right to left. This is known as tategaki format and imitates traditional Chinese form. Today people often write horizontally from left to right. This style is known as yokogaki and imitates European form.

Koneko, kitten, consists of 2 kanji. The first one is the kanji for child. 'ko'. Written 子。 Neko is the second part, which just means cat. Written 猫。 With the dog radical on the left, the grass radical on the top right, and the field radical on the bottom right. So put together: 子猫。 Hope that helps.

Foreign names are almost never written using kanji - they are written inkatakana. In katakana, the name Aaron would be アーロン (aaron).A possibility in kanji would be安論 (aron), but I strongly advise you not to use it as your name.

六 is how the number 6 is written in Kanji. If looking for the hiragana writing, it is ろく, and in romaji "roku". To type in kanji, simply type 'roku' in hiragana and press the spacebar and check to see if it resembles the Kanji character displayed at the beginning.

Lina can't be spelled in kanji. The syllable 'Li' does not exist in original Japanese syllabary, for which kanji is used. Instead it only can be written in 'katakana' as リーナ /rii na/.
