Correct spelling of a name

Q: I would like to change my name so it matches with my little brothes name that is zainul aabideen. There are two spellings that I have found, can you tell me which one is correct riyazuddin or riyazuddeen?

A: There is no exact equivalent of Arabic words in the English language. You may spell it in either way.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
