There seems to be confusion about the characters' names though, can we change Ryder's first name or not? The fact that this infodump lists three first names says no to me, but others seem to be sure the first name is set by the player. Not sure where the latter is coming from.
One of the BioWare guys (Mike Gamble, I think) confirmed you can change the first names. The names listed in the OP are the default names, much like John and Jane for Shepard.
