Bai2 Kang1 or Bai2 Ke3 etc

In chinese characters, bai2 白 means "white" as "bianca" does, and it happens to be close in pronounciation to "bian". Since I cannot tell your sex,I propose the second character as kang1 "康" for boy or ke3 可 for girl. There are other alternatives, but the color of a chinese-character combination is delicate. 白康 or 白可 combined with your translated family name (usually one character representing an existing Chinese family name) will be like a genuine Chinese name.

You can also choose to transliterateit more faithfully to 碧安卡,
then every Chinese know it is rather a foreign name in Chinese form than a Chinese name.
