It's a contraction of my first name (Stian) and my two other initials.

So my name is スティアン or スティヤン in Japanese - not sure really - and probably something
like Steeyon in English. (It's from Norse
Stigandr - wanderer)

IPA: Sti:ɑn

I think. : means long vowel right?

Chung has a few meanings if Urban Dictionary is to be trusted. I myself have only heard of it being used to refer to being high (e.g. "Dude, I'm so chung right now.").

Chung can mean something for some Asians although I'm not sure if their pronunciation would be quite the same as I do it using American English (rhymes with "hung" or "rung"). The link is also complicated by conventions for transcription.

- chung "general, common" etc. (Vietnamese)
- 忠 "loyalty" ('zhōng') (Mandarin)*

* I wonder if the character is pronounced in other Chinese languages in a way that's closer to the pronunciation in English.

My nick, translated in English, is Nick :P
"nicozerpa" comes from Nico, the colloquial shortened form of Nicolás, my middle name
(I almost never use my first name, which is Raúl). Zerpa is just my maternal family
name. It comes from Spain, possibly from the Canary Islands or Extremadura, and I have
no idea what it means.

English: nickzerpa, colinzerpa
Esperanto: nicxjozerpa
Norwegian: nilszerpa
Japanese Katakana: ゼルパ.ニコラス (Zerupa Nikorasu)

I don't want to think what my nickname means, especially in Italian, hehe :) I've chosen it because of its sounding and spelling long time ago, when I didn't have even a proper access to the internet, I'm afraid. Google points that there is some company named Via Diva - weird thought, but I don't care about it now :)
My real name is Daria, and I'm aware that it's Persian and male in origin. The rest is copied from wiki:
Quote:

Дарья Russian
Dareia Late Greek
Daria English, Latinized Late Greek, Italian, Polish, Romanian
Darija Croatian, Macedonian, Serbian
Darinka Slovene
Dariya Ukrainian
Darja Czech, Latvian, Slovene
Daruška Czech
Derya Turkish
Daryna Ukrainian
Tarja Finnish
