The name game

Today’s Zippy:

“Bill Griffith” is an easy shot, but for “Zippy” we do indeed have: Zippy Shares (“online free file hosting”), Zippy Duck (a 6-1/2″ bag that closes with a zipper), and Scooter’s Zippy Pickles (of Pensacola FL). Plus lots of occurrences of the adjective zippy not in proper names.

(My dad’s nickname was Zip — from college days, when his friends said that he had lots of zip — but never Zippy. “Zippy” is a lot sillier than “Zip”.)

(No google hits for “Merwin Webcor”, by the way. Or for “Zip Zwicky”.)
