There is no Japanese name for Richardson. You can put it into katakana and pronounce it as they would, but there is no Japanese equivalent. As for R names, I'm not sure. Those are hard to find, but I'm sure one exists somewhere.

thanks marc
i have a character in this story i'm working on. she's japanese but her last name is richardson which i don't really fit her japanese ethnicity. i know there is a few japanese with american last names but they live in america she was born and raise in japan that's why i was looking for the japanese name for richardson. and plus i kind of hoping to have her name start with a r kind of like peter parker,etc.
