I never read the Ghost in the Shell manga, but from what I remember of the tv show and the pictures I've seen online, Major looks a lot like Scarlett Johansson. I believe she did have a Japanese name before she was a cyborg, but if you're looking for a faithful visual representation of the character I think they chose well. I understand that white washing is a major issue, however in the case of an anime where characters in the source material are often drawn to look white, it doesn't really seem like an odd casting choice.
