Oda in charge of European name etymology.
Frank comes from the kingdom of the Franks of the CAROLingian and Merovingian dynasty.
Robin is a modern melding of the Germanic ROBert and a diminutive French pet name "in".
Additionally, "brook" is Dutch, not Austrian, but I'll give him a pass for at least being in the right region. The rest are either wapanese or made up.
This is a comic stop putting race into it. Stop taking what Oda said seriously. Fuking people making this a big deal. This question should never have been answered. This is like anime look white and doesn't look japanese.
>Aokiji is based off a Japanese guy
Keep in mind, Brazil has the largest population of ethnically Japanese people outside of Japan in the world. The two countries have a lot of interaction. There's a reason Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a thing.
Luffy being equated with Brazilians implies he's the least-gaijin gaijin possible with a high possibility of being partially ethnically Japanese.
Even less sense because of this + Cosette
