Has the citys name something to do with Hamburg, Germany?
Anyway it has a larger skyline than "the real" Hamburg despite it is much smaller.

absolutely. The history is as follows:

in 1824, the german immigration to Brasil started. Most of the german immigrants received free lands in the area known at the time as Feitoria do Linho-Cnhamo. One of these immigrants, was a man from Hamburg, Germany, and he stablished a trade outpost in a hill. He used to say to his clients "Always come back to the house of the old hamburguer!".

Soon, the hill became known as Hamburguer Berg (Hill of the Hamburguer).

Around 1880, the british were building a railroad, and a trainstation was built some 2km down from the hill where now there was a small town. A new development area soon appeared around the train station, and that area became called by the british as New Hamburg, as opposed to the "old" part of the town, Hamburguer Berg. When the city emancipated from the other german settled city of So Leopoldo, it got the name Novo Hamburgo.

One interesting fact, is that the most correct name should be Nova Hamburgo, instead of Novo Hamburgo, since the word "Novo" (new) reffers to "city" (new city of hamburg), and city in portuguese is a "female" noum.

China is not the richest third world country, neither Brazil or Mexico are. its like saying that a guy who has 10 kids and a salary of U$10.000 is wealthier then a guy who has 1 kid and a salary of U$5.000. depends of how you see
