Semen

My new friend's name is Semyon. He lives in Ukraine. He is about to obtain an international passport and eventually move abroad. It is likely that Ukrainian officials will spell his name "Semen". What do you think: how bad would this be for his life say in US? Requesting a different spelling in Ukraine would be a hassle. Would it be alright to have the name in US spelled "Semen" or is it better to go into extra trouble and have it spelled "Semyon"?
