In a comment somewhere on Eric’s site a while back, I mistyped my name as “Mimbo.” Funny name, that, at least for an American human being. It might work for a cat or a dog, or it might be a perfectly acceptable name, as common as “John,” in some other countries.
The other day while pavement pounding, I got to thinking how many names could be made simply by mistyping the first letter in my name. I think it works for just about all the letters, with possible exception of “I” and “U”.
Aimbo – Good name for a marksman.
Bimbo – ‘Nuf said.
Cimbo – Sounds a bit like the name one of Tarzan’s animal pals.
Dimbo – A name for a not-too-bright guy.
Eimbo – I can imagine a Nordic skier with that name.
Fimbo – Fat clown name.
