I think this is his name: 楚留香

He's a Gu Long hero. "rox" = "rocks", meaning he's great.

Yes, I did, because I am more familiar with names in Cantonese rather than Mandarin.

I personally don't speak Cantonese, but my Chinese relatives do. One of my aunts is married to a man from Hong Kong and lives there, and Cantonese is the majority dialect there.
