I would have called him Dick Johnston rather than Dick Wang.   The
Chinese name Wang is pronounced the same way as Wong even though it is
a different name.  (The Chinese name Wang is common in Beijing and is
pronounced Ong in Hong Kong.  The Chinese name Wong is common in Hong
Kong and is pronounced Hwang in Beijing.)
