* Kimiko "Kim" Ross of ''Webcomic/DresdenCodak'' was born Kimiko Kusanagi, but [[NomDeMom changed her surname]] to her mother's after she died and her dad [[DisappearedDad vanished from her life]]. She usually just goes by "Kim" since she's uncomfortable with her Japanese heritage, only to find out [[spoiler:her father was actually Korean and born Kim Yong-Soo, meaning she's unintentionally been using his real name as her own]].

** Lieutenant Kaidan Alenko also counts. His surname is Ukrainian, while his given name seems to be of Japanese origins. And he was born and raised in [[CanadaEh Vancouver]].
*** Kaidan isn't actually a name in Japanese, although it is a word, referring to a genre of Edo era ghost stories-- none of which necessarily means it couldn't be the origin, but given how it's pronounced ("KAY-din"), it might also be a variation of Caden (of Celtic origin), or else based on an Arabic word meaning 'Companion'. Or perhaps his parents (and Bioware) might have just liked the way it sounded, in which case it would be a Canadian name. Still counts, regardless, but there doesn't seem to be any WordOfGod on this.
