Paris is OK.

I have a bigger problem with Karl Rove, one of George W Bush henchmen... He is also of Norwegian blood

Scotland's in a similar situation - far more "Scots" in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand than there are in Scotland. Some "famous" ones:

I don't think it's that uniq,read that there are almost 8 million americans with heritage from Sweden and we are only 9 million.
When i was in LA almost 50% ore more looks like they came from Asia for example..
The most famous American/Swede would be Buzz Aldrin
