Sulu's given name was always intended to be Hikaru
This seems strange on Roddenberry's part. He deliberately choose a non-specific Pan-Asian Surname, and then choose a given name that is overtly Japanese.

Perhaps Roddenberry should have made Sulu's first name "Ming." I've noticed that Ming is common to a lot of different Asian cultures and countries.

Lieutenant Ming Sulu?

Maybe?
