Is it ever okay to give a character a name without regarding their ethnicity?

Yeah, that probably is worded in the most difficult and incomprehensible ways possible because I'm an oddling...

I mean like, is it okay if tu have a character that is from an Asian decent, but bears a Greek name?

I've been trying to write this book for like 5 years o so, and I base my character's names off of their meaning rather than origin. The main character's adoptive father comes from an Asian family, but I can't find any Asian names that I like that suit him, but I have a particular Greek one that I'm interested in using, but I don't really know if that's acceptable.

So is it, o is that just too weird? o am I just putting too much thought in to this?

And I totally understand if this is one of those TL;DR things. XD I know full well that I am exuberantly long winded and... well... talk weird. XD

Very easy way to solve this. Just say the character's mixed of whatever ethnicity tu choose to use and honestly I would like to know a character's ethnicity but it is not that important. The story is the most important part for me and don't worry I talk alot too. xD

Well the character is biracial and his ethnicity IS started in his descripción so I suppose it's okay... XD I just worry is all. And hoorah for endless blabbering! I'm not alone! (^o▽o)^

I dont think that readers take that all into consideration. Your overthinking it. If tu thing the name suits your character than use it. It will be fine.
