My entire family is Mexican, I was born in Mexico and grew up there until I was 10 years old. In latino culture it common for kids to have two last names one from the father’s side and one from the mother’s side. My full name is José Eduardo Corella Carranza. José is not terribly hard to understand its meaning; it is biblical. It comes from the foster father of Jesus, Joseph or José. My middle name comes from the first name of my mother’s grandfather. Each of my last names comes from each of my parents’ fathers.

I have always disliked my middle name, I don’t know why. I think it is because it does not have a nice ring to it. I usually tend to not disclose it simply because I don’t like it. I have never had trouble with my name. I also have not changed it in order to adapt or stuff like that.
