More importantly does it matter?You'll never get anywhere if you're going to worry about who you might offend.
I have several characters based (VERY) loosely on Norse figures that wouldn't stand up to inspection (of course my characters use the idea that they are the truth behind the myth, but whatevs). Won't see me sayin', "I'm sorry I insulted your god, Bjorn Bjornson, allow me to change everything about the character till you are satisfied." And nor should you ssy somesuch.
The madness is catching.
