Sorry, looks like you want to aggregate the types into a new type, is so one
could use a complexType consisting of the simpleTypes from your example,
like following:

<xs:complexType name="Person-name">
   <xs:sequence>
      <xs:element name="familyName" type="Family-name"/>
      <xs:element name="middleInitial" type="Middle-initial"/>
      <xs:element name="givenName" type="Given-name"/>
   </xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>

The individual types viz. Family-name, Middle-initial and Given-name have
their value-space already constrained in your example, so in that sense this
new complexType also has it's value space constrained.
