Names are assimlated into Sasxsek phonemically, however they are not
bound to Sasxsek's phonotactics. The order of names remains as in the
source languages so Europeans would have their family name last whereas
Chinese would place it first. All names are introduced with the
particle <li>, or the preposition <lu>. Multiple words names are either
placed in quotes <> or separated by apostrophes (').
So your example above would be:
(li) mihail'solovjev, or (li) <mihail solovjev>
Optionally a name could be written in the native script and/or
orthography by using square brackets  rather than quotes. However
this would have to assume the reader knows how to read and/or pronounce
the native script.
