The names are entered just as in any normal event. Since the names are entered table by table you actually enter the names in the order of the first round.
The pair number assignment is very simple. At table 1 pairs 1 and 2 meet, at table 2 pairs 3 and 4, and so on.
If you have an odd number of pairs along with two random rounds, you are recommended to place the phantom pair as North-South at the highest table number. Read more about why this is a good idea.
