"His is also a German name but Hans Christian Andersen was from Denmark"?

The phrasing might be a bit old-fashioned, but given the limited context I guess it is technically a possible translation. :)

I think it's meant more as: "Hans" is also a German name, but Hans Christian Andersen was from Denmark.

It's particularly annoying in a sentence like this one where there are no English homonyms, or whatever you call them when they are spelled the same in two different languages.
