In the USofA, the name is Vietnamese.

And there are _lots_ of them.  There is purported to
be more than a page of them in the Manhattan phone
directory.
To which of course I had to add:
In the 2004 phone book there's 1 full page less 21 entries, plus about
2/3 of a column on the next page - fewer than I thought.  In the 2002-03
Brooklyn phone book there is almost exactly the same number of Ng
listings.

We have a guy working here named Ng, we all just say "ing".
