Chun-Li is usually given a surname of Xiang/Zhang, Ryu is given Hoshi, Victor is used as Sagat's first name and Guile's full name and rank was Colonel William F. Guile before he was canonically shown to be a Major. Charlie Nash's name was originally given by fan after combining his American and Japanese names and later became canon.
