My name is Julio Ng. It is a short name compared to other people’s names. My first name is a Brazilian name, and my last name is in Chinese. Many people from Brazil think my surname is a little bit strange because it is too short. I remember when I was in school in Brazil, many teachers and classmates were curious about the meaning of my surname, but even I had no idea about it. They thought I was abbreviating to make it easier to understand. I do not have much knowledge about my name and his meaning, because it was something that I had no interest to know. However, the only thing that I know it was not a name which was chose by my parents or a family member, but it was chosen by my parent’s friend. Probably my parents did not know what kind of name they should choose for me, and I believe their friend used my brother’s name as a reference, because both of our names start with J and it could help or maybe he got that idea from a friend. Sometimes, my name sounds a little bit strange for me. If I could, I would change it. It does not mean that I do not like, but I would like that my first name was in Chinese as well. In my family, nobody has that name and there is no history behind it. I had no idea about the meaning of my name until the moment that I found a research page which says the meaning of each name, and according to that information, my name means young and full of youth, and I can relate to that.
