This name (when used in the USA) is not always bestowed on Japanese-Americans. I know because I happen to have met a non-Japanese girl of around six years old. This name is also used in the excellent young adult book, 'Hello, Universe', where it does belong to a Japanese girl.

This is my name. (I'm a Japanese female)
Using Kanji "香", so it means fragrant. My father was a garden lover, so he chose this name for his first child, me.

Kinda old-school female name in Japan, good to know babies in the U.S. are having the same name. (are they Japanese-American or not?)

Also, people who's name is Kaori tend to called "Kaorin"as nickname. Me included.
