The transliteration for Dung should be Yung. The Vietnamese letter D (pronounce dờ) sounds just like a Y in English.

Substitute the letter D for Y and those words would've sounded the same:

Ying Yang

This is a case where I approve changing either the name or the pronunciation,. Correct is “y” but if you still want to keep the Vietnamese spelling adding z is ok too zung is till better than dung.

The male version of Dung is Dũng, which means brave, so those are actually good names. I think the letter Z would be a good sub for words starting with the phonetic Gi pronounciation like giang, giờ, con giun, etc. For example, the phrase "cái gì" can be written as "cái zì", and it would be perfectly understandable to Vietnamese speakers. Using Dung as a middle name is another great option.

I think they put the Z in Dung is because they don't want to be confused with cow dung for English speakers.  Kind of like Bich, but no one want to keep Bich, so they use Bicherella or something.

Using Zung instead of Dung is quite weird if you are a Vietnamese speaker.  Zung looks kind of masculine and weird and pseudo-Chinese, while Dung looks more feminine and soft.
