Spaniards do not have middle names, but they do have two family names. For example, my full name is Irene Corchado Resmella. First names can be made up of one single name nombre simple or two nombre compuesto. In Spanish, compound names are considered a single unit — your nombre — so the second element of your name is NOT a middle name, but part of your first name. For example, your parents may want to call you Roberto and, due to family agreements or pressure, they decide to also call you David after your grandfather, for example. You end up with Roberto David as a first name, but you will probably only use just Roberto in your everyday life.
The second you start learning the language, you want to know how to write and say your name in Japanese. I hope, by this time, you already know your Katakana. If not… you…. But you should really learn Katakana here. Your name will be written in Katakana.
So you need to write a letter or email in Spanish? The good thing about letters and emails is you have time to think about what you are going to say. The bad thing is sometimes the language is very particular.
