English term or phrase: transliteration of the name "Hanson"
Since Russian doesn't have a letter that sounds like the English "H", how would my name be represented? (In my Russian-English dictionary it uses the letter "X", but I think that's just a phonetic symbol.)
Mark Hanson
Russian translation:Хенсон или Хэнсон
Explanation:
In fact, some names do acquire "G" in Russian (Г), line Hans (German) - Gans transliterated, or Helmut - Gelmut. Such is tradition. But as for Hanson, it always occurs with the Russian Х. Other names that receive "G' are Harry -Garry, and the like. But this is for sure to use Х in Russian for the cawse with Hanson.

Хэнсон


Explanation:
This is the latest variant of this name according to the 1999 Dictionary "How to transliterate Foreign Names in Russian". Before it was spelled Хенсон for which you may see the "Dictionary of English Family Names" Moscow, 1989. As for the rest I completely agree with the above.
