He wouldn't be called the Cantonese, because "Mandarin" in the character's case doesn't refer to some Chinese dialect dependent on a particular region of China anymore than it refers to some kind of small orange. It's a title which, if anything, probably derives from these high ranking Chinese officials called Mandarins.
