    nope, I don't think there is a way to know that... perharps he's japanese?? the author is japanese and so she made the brightest guys over the face of earth japanese too (we'd have a clue if that damn REM had written L's name clearly)

    No Dekkai you've got it all wrong. His maternal grandparents were born in a tiny island off the coast of Northern Iceland, then emigrated to Long Island, NY where L's mother was born.

    His paternal grandfather was born in Stalingrad during WWII. He later fled to Petrograd, where he met L's paternal grandmother. L's father was born when his paternal grandparents moved to Afghanistan in order to work with the mujahideen.

    L's parents met by chance on the internet, in a flame war in the Gantz forum regarding the true nationality of Kei Kurono. It was love at first flame. They hooked up in Horsefly, B.C. (also in Canada, btw), which was incidentally where they first made love. But alas, God wasn't going to make it that easy for them.

    It would appear that L's mother had a faulty uterus lining, making implantation of the egg impossible. Yes, L was a test tube baby, conceived somewhere in the state of New Jersey with his father's sperm and the egg from Sayu Yagami. Yes, Light's sister was L's biological mother, which explains the reason why L felt a certain rapport with Light. And thus, L is born into this world to meet his destiny: the final showdown between he and his "brother", Light! Read the manga for more details.

    Okay, this may seem chronologically impossible, but it's all true I say! I've got sources! See! See!!!! Oh wait you don't see??

    Anywho, I'm pretty dang sure L's.............................Russian. 'Cuz everyone's Russian. No actually he's Japanese. But you don't have to believe me.

    oh, rite, ma bad xD





    come to think of it, we saw the name of Mello and Near, and I don't have a clue where they could be from O_o so, unless L's name was something like "miyamoto" or "saotome" or "yamada" or something, we couldn't be sure just for his name

    Well, we'll just assume that he's Japanese, as everyone else in the story is.

    Besides, aren't Mello and Near nicknames or something? I'm pretty sure they're not their real names, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    Well, Mello's name sounds Russian, and Near's name sounds... I dunno, British or American, or something. Still, neither of them looked Japanese. L certainly did.

    Also, am I remembering this wrong or did L start that orphanage or whatever where Near and Mello came from?

    I always got the impression he was either british or american, based on his butler-type guy and the fact that his organization has a western feel to it. His personal ethnicity, though, we'll never discover.
