comment What exactly is おく doing in 聞いておく?
I was not aware of the "just simply do" or "do anyway" meanings. I think this definition matches the context the most.

comment Are foreign personal names usually written in katakana rather than Romaji?
Just anecdotes for consideration: I was recently involved in a law suit. On all legal documents pertaining to the court case, my name was written in romaji. I think however, this was because that was how my lawyer originally submitted my name. I believe that for a court of civil law, they don't impose a rule on how your name is presented, they just insist on consistency. On the other hand, I've started a few companies, and in each case, I was required to provide an official katakana spelling of my name, along with a registered seal using that name.
