Hoàng Hồng Giangさん、 さん、

Your name should be ファンホンジアン or ファンホングアン in Japanese.
You can choose one which is close your original name.

Hello! I think I have an idea of how to spell my name in katakana, but let's see if I've got it right!

It is Chanda Phim, pronounced ch-awn-da p-i-m.

Hi, I have been trying to get my Japanese name for 20 years by myself but I am still very confuse. I am a Chinese, my name is 张竜光。If i translate it directly it is Cho Ryu Hikari. But I just wanna get my name correctly. I dun wan the surname of cause. So my name should be Tatsumitsu or Ryuko... Thanks a lot in advance.

张竜光さん、
こんにちは。
Your name is 張竜光 in Japanese.
Chinese people’s name should be read as on-reading so your name should be ちょうりゅうこう.

terefajonkさん、
こんにちは。
I see.
Thank you for your post.

If my name is Jeremy in English, what would my name be in Japanese? I'm a little new to all this.

I guess this is a Portuguese name, so I think it will be like this:-

チアゴ ・ シルバ ・ ファリアス
chiago shiruba fariasu

I was wondering if my name ( Shaun Flanagan) would sound any different and what the katakana spelling would be.

I think it will be ショーン ・ フラナガン, which is sho-o-n fu-ra-na-ga-n. The Japanese 'o' sound is very close to the 'au' in 'Shaun', so the Japanese version of your name will sound quite similar to the way you pronounce it yourself.
