Since priests were/are not allowed to get married and have children, his grandfather picked a random name from a phonebook in a bid to keep their identity hidden.

Explaining further, he wrote: "On the other hand, my wife's last name comes from her Japanese father, and can be traced back for hundreds and hundreds of years. Since my father-in-law doesn't have siblings, and my wife only has a sister, there's not a whole lot of people to carry on the Miyoshi name.

I figured her name is the better choice out of the two, so why not! As of tomorrow afternoon, I will no longer be Ryan Morrison, and instead: Ryan Miyoshi"
