めいし -おなまえ わしい
My given English name is all I use on my meishi. I have a Japanese name (my middle name), but nobody uses it, so I don't bother. Though, since my name is fairly hard to pronounce by Japanese, I often debate switching to my Japanese name and use my mom's maiden name =\

It's particularly a pain in the ass when calling headquarters in Tokyo. Just about everyone there knows me, but it usually takes a few tries before they realize who it is they are talking to and get my name right...
