My name in my other documents is Harsha N R.:
- first name Harsha
- surname: Nidanur Rajappa
Nidanur is my native place, and Rajappa is my father's name.
Can there be two names in the surname column, like Nidanur Rajappa?

I have a compound first name (this can be problematic) because in some applications they put the second part of my first name in the middle name field; but multiple family/surnames are not a problem.
Speaking of Arabic names, the name is (for males, and is written without dashes):
First Name - Last Name - Father's First Name - Father's Last Name
In my case, my father also has a compound first name, so you can imagine the fun I have living in Kuwait.
However, in the application you should put your full legal name. The name that appears in your travel document (generally a passport), and it should have the exact same latin spelling as well.
