Ba-samu


Explanation:
The usual way to put this into Japanese is to use the Japanese phonetic alphabet (katakana). Assuming that the pronounciation of Barsam is the amalgamation of iron *bar* and and the *sam* of Samuel, then in Japanese this would be

Ba-samu

or in Japanese letters,

バーサム

If you cannot see the above click the first reference

If you would like to write your name in Sino-Japanese letters then that is not contvetional but possible also. There are many possibilities.

If you cannot view the below then see the second reference
