The Doctor's real name has never and never will be revealed, so this question is impossible to answer. In addition, no Gallifreyan alphabet has ever been published. However -- it has been indicated in various behind-the-scenes accounts of "A Good Man Goes to War" that the Gallifreyan script seen on the side of the Doctor's cot was at one point going to be the Doctor's real name. As this fact was deleted from the televised version of the episode, it is not considered canonical, so it is unknown what the Gallifreyan symbols mean.
