'Bi' in Japanese does mean something. It means beauty, written ”ü by kanji (ideograph)or ‚Ñ by kana (sound). The symbol ƒr is also the sound 'bi' in katakana but normally katakana isn't used for native Japanese words. If you want it to mean beauty, you might want to use the kanji, if you do not want it to mean beauty, you should probably use kana (hiragana or katakana, probably katakana).
