Default ecfmg application name help

hi ..i am an img from india currently doing my internship..i was applying for step 1 as student and had a doubt about the name rules
my name on my passport is
given name-faisal hussain

on all my transcripts/memos and all other my name is syed faisal hussain

i haven't yet received my diploma(as i am still a student) but i will get it next year and my name on my diploma will be SYED FAISAL HUSSAIN

now ecfmg has first name....middle name....last name(surname)

how do i enter my name so that it finally comes as syed faisal hussain on my ecfmg record and on my scheduling permit?

american way of writting the name is they write the surname in the end but in india its mostly written in the front
now ecfmg states in its rules to enter the family name/surname as last name

if i go by this and enter my last name(surname) as syed according to my ecfmg name will come as FAISAL HUSSAIN SYED which is different from the name on my diploma/transcripts and all

how do i write the sequence of my name??..plzz help cause if this goes wrong i will again have to go through the verification process which will take more time
