Can you tell us a little bit more about what you would like for your name? First, do you want a male or female name? (I'm only familiar with Kyaw as the name of the Burmese president, so I'm guessing male, but thought I should double-check.) Also, is there some sort of meaning or sound that you'd like? If your name has a particular significance to you, we could look for names that have a similar meaning/origin.

Just going off of the sound, Kai might be a possibility. This is a Chinese name, but is also used in the US a fair amount (and is also an independent name in Hawaiian, Danish, Japanese, Welsh, and a slew of other languages) so it's pretty portable.

Other possibilities keeping the same initial sound might be Cam, Caden, Keaton, Kevin, Kip, or Kit.

I think nedibes suggestion of "Kai" is a good one. I have also known a few Chinese & Chinese-American folks who go by Lin, which was always part of their name to start with -- it's easily recognizable and pronounceable by English speakers. Since it is already part of your name, perhaps that could be an option?

If you want to stick closer to the sound of Kyaw and Kai doesn't suit, the next name that occurs to me is Casey. This is a reasonably gender-neutral name fairly common, but not TOO common, in the United States. I know people ranging in age from 15-60 with this name, men and women. Its pronunciation is unambiguous. It is derived from an Irish name but has no real meaning and no offputting implications. It is well known from the poem "Casey at the Bat", which many children in the US read in elementary school, about a baseball player. "Casey Ye" (assuming Ye is your family name) is not hard to say and looks pleasing written down, to me anyway!
