i had a coworker named mike ng recently. everyone said "ing" but i feel that 
that probably wasn't really technically correct. i don't know.

i believe it's vietnamese, but i could be wrong.

i also know a peter nguyen. people say "n'guyen" basically. (as opposed to 
"ing'uyen" i suppose.)

christian.
