Is "Odahiro Watanabe" confirmed to be the actual name?

In the official Tokyo Ghoul:re website, his name is written to be "Toshinori Watanabe".

Is it possible that he has pen names?

It looks like in this case that his given name in kanji is just a bit of an unusual one with different potential readings. I think it's just that "Odahiro" got entered either by his name being incorrectly romanized in English credits or just a guess by the contributor going by kanji credits, and that just stuck for most entries thereafter. There already are some "Toshinori Watanabe" entries from the times where his name was rendered in hiragana (and thus, his given name couldn't be mistaken) or was spelled correctly in English credits. The official Tokyo Ghoul site confirms it on top of that, so I have gone ahead and merged them.
