Camargo's grandfather, Ralph Camargo, was a Mexican-American actor who talked his daughters into changing their names to something Anglicized because he felt he had lost roles due to being Latino. Camargo decided to change his name back from Minnick because of pride in his Mexican-American heritage and a desire to bring back a name that he felt was connected to his profession.
