Scroll down to see more original designs of Kirk in Japanese The name Kirk when pronounced kurk in Japanese is with the romaji ka-ku.
Kirk as a non-Japanese name is properly rendered in Japanese using katakana. We also offer Kirk in hiragana which generally is considered to be more feminine. Kirk in hiragana is and has the romaji kaaku. Notice that the hiragana rendering differs from the katakana due to the fact that katakana has fairly recently evolved to better render non-Japanese sounds into Japanese.
Note that both katakana and hiragana only render syllable sounds. Either may be used and you don't have to worry about any bad or unintended meanings because they don't have any - they are like English letters and simply sound out the name in Japanese characters.
Translations You Can Trust Look up Kirk in Jeffrey's J/E Dictionary at Kirk. The popular Japanese site Movie Walker has at least one celebrity named Kirk that uses this translation to Japanese.
