Are there any formal rules regarding the combination of English and Chinese names?
In my case, my Chinese name is: Huang Zhi Yuan
My English name is: Michael Huang
Since I was born in Australia and have lived here all my life, I generally use my English name only. However, I would like to include my Chinese name as a middle name, so that my full name would be: Michael Zhi-Yuan Huang.
Is this the right way to do it (is the hyphenation right?)
Also, what would be the rule for initializing my new middle name: Michael Z.Y. Huang, or just Michael Z. Huang?
Sorry for being so pedantic about a name, but my name and the identity it gives me is important personally.
