    As carey pointed out, you don't necessarily have to have the Chinese name included in the English name as what carang has done. You can simply be John Esperanza, but be Cai Xiao Hong (in Chinese characters) or you can also be John Xiao Hong Esperanza. The Chinese name is a separate name from the English name.

    Buckeroo my case is indeed like what you've mentioned previously. My husband does have a chinese surname but it's just not reflected in his passport since he's using a Filipino passport. He is chinese in ethnicity so we're kinda hoping we can use his chinese surname that came from his grandfather in our son's passport and id card. This thread has been extremely helpful. Thanks guys! This really helped us a lot. Now we know how to go about it! ;)
