English writing of names.

Dear friends, how to write properly गाउँमा ?
There is different writing in english, soetimes "....gau", sometimes "..gaun".
We should decide for one version.

Re: English writing of names.

We talk about ending of names they have word "village" inside. Like word "river" which is in all Nepal written as nepali word "khola". E.g. "Gothu Khola".

Re: English writing of names.

Dear nepali community, please put this description in the Wiki.
I guess, we need section: Writing nepali names in english.
And especially the same in nepali language, for nepali people they don´t speak english fluently.
