I'm making up my biz. card, mostly for U.S. use (though it may go around a small group of Japanese). I'm unsure what the best "Halvsie" way is to handle the use of the Japanese family name.

I have written なまえ・ my name line that reads :

<!--sizeo:4--><!--/sizeo-->菊地<!--sizec--><!--/sizec--> (の) 二ール アンジラ

Is the use of の acceptable or inappropriate? Í haven't seen anything that handles this matter.
I'm wondering what other Halvsies do in this situation.
