Importing non-English names

I'm importing records from a csv file from eBay with customer names. It works fine for English names but I run into a problem with foreign names. An example: the name in the csv file is "Finnbjørn" and if the import Character Set is Macintosh I get "Finnbj¯rn." The only other option seems to be Unicode UTF-8 and that returns



The Unicode UTF-16 character set is grayed out. I can open the file in Excel and it read correctly, and I can then import into FileMaker from the Excel file and the name is correct. Hopefully there's a way to import directly into FileMaker from the csv file.


Any ideas?


Thanks for your help,
