Mikeさん、ありがとうございます。

I had long debated the little つ myself.

[nitpick]X is usually 〜ックス, with a small ツ before the ク. So, Alex would usually be アレックス.[/nitpick]

If someone points me to evidence to the contrary that proves me wrong, I will gladly admit I have made a mistake.
Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

ルーク・ヂュポン

I chose to "kananize" my last name (Dupont) as dyupon, as that is closer to the original french pronunciation, and sounds much better than ヂュポント。 Perhaps I should use デゥ or デュ rather than ヂュ, though - since ぢゅ would probably be pronounced the as じゅ。

You may want to chose デュ. (type "dhu" in IME) ルーク・デュポン

An American chemical(?) company Dupont is well known in Japan as デュポン社.

A drawback may be...it's a little difficult to pronounce for elderly people even in katakana.... :)

Better would be アングステー・コダー

I'd suggest アングスティ・コダー may be more popular way to translate.

Someone may translate アングスティー but ー (long vowel) at the end is omitted (by no reason) in the fashion these days. :)

Ok... Intentionally strange :)
My name: べっき どうっり。。。 But it should be: ベッキ ドウッリ。

Mmm. Somewhat strange... What's the original spell in alphabet and pronunciation if I may ask?

I'm not sure how to right GhoulsNightOut in hiragana, if someone wants to try, by all means.

If the pronunciations of the three words are the same as in dictionary, they would be translated as:

ghouls グールズ
Night ナイト
Out アウト

僕はそう思う以外「オフ」。「off」と言うの英語言葉が日本語に翻訳することは一般的「オブ」と思う。

「オフ」以外は正しいと思います。「of」という英単語を日本語に翻訳すると、一般的には「オブ」と思います。
Please note I corrected the most important part, from "off" to "of".

But actually I'd suggest アークオブノア (for Arc-Of-Noah).

American R sound is "not" translated as ら行 in Japanese.

僕も日本語が下手なので、上の文章は間違いかも知れません。

I trie to stick to ます style. It's more suitable than だ・である style. If you want to be more familiar friendly than normal touch, you may want to put ね or よ at the end of ます. If you want to be like more close friend, you can use だ style - which is in your original post...but maybe it's too familiar?

てい くりす

No dot is ok, but I'm wondering if "chi" part is prounced like てい which would soud TE-EE.

It depends on what you pronounce it but maybe Chi would be チ (ch-ee) or チャイ (ch-eye)?

Ohh thanks. That's more obvious than I thought it would be. You can tell I'm not used to this sort of thing. =)

I'd suggest アレックス for Alex. It's far more popular in Japanese translation than アレクス.

Actually I don't exactly know the rule how to put the small ッ...shamefully. :(

Edit: Sorry, it's already mentioned...

I'm so curious how your name should be pronounced, especially Dzha part!

If you pronounce Armen in American or British English style, I'd suggest to translate it as アーメン instead of アルメン.
As for -ryan part, I think リアン is more common. It's like ハンガリアン for Hungarian.

If you prefer your local language pronunciation....maybe it's hard for you to describe the proper pronunciation and it's hard for me to suggest what's appropriate Japanese.

(If you prefer French pronunciation, maybe I can suggest and Armen may be アルマン).

This never really crossed my mind actually .

I guess my (real) name would be something along the lines of アンヅレイ クリシャーン or something like that.
