(1) サイモン or (2) さいもん or (3) 才文 saino no sai, Mombusho no mon no mon


Explanation:
In Japanese foreigners' names are usually written in a form of phonogram called Katakana(1),very rarely in another form of phonogram, Hiragana(2), and almost never in Kanji(ideograms). I find (1) much too conventional and (2) a bit peculiar. Most interesting and most appropriate for the asker, probably a very competent translator, would be to express his name in Kanji(3). The kanjis I have selected for him are "sai" which means talent" and "mon" which means "writings, literature, education or study". I hope the asker has a Japanese software so that he can see his name in Japanese.
