I have no need for a business card so I have not made any; however, on my resume my name is: Taro (firstname) Yamada (middle name, which is my mother's name) Smith (father's name).

"No" is not so much inappropriate, but incorrect.
You would just write, Kikuchi Nial (sp?) Angela.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

You have a really nice sounding name! Taro Yamada Smith.
Thanks for the input Marisuke. The no was there as a gesture, whether one read it as posessive or as another dumb cross-cultural denial of myself. grrrr。
I think you may be correct that I should remove it.
I debated putting the K in the neale as a hard sound that was eliminated by my performing Great grandmother as being too Irish sounding,,,. クニール。
Among other things... And, I still feel like my name and permanent address are a sick joke when translated.

I wonder if anyone else has had this tyぺ おふ problem. Or shares my sentiment with bi-lingual puns.
I thought it looked cute in the braces...like a little noh moon.

Anyway... back to reality.
