My start suggests I’m made of dough

My suffix is one, so

Right in between, one can be seen

And I have caused a flow

Any idea who I might be?

A hint for third and second clue:

To get them both resolved

They should be taken literally

No islands are involved

Another hint for you:

Sounds like or tricks I must dismiss, need for a whiz to settle this? Let suffix be what suffix is

One more to serve as cue:

"so" hints at a link, correct I think, another word's truly in sync

The answer is

Me, Riley

My start suggests I'm made of dough

Ri as in rye bread

My suffix is one

"ey" is itself a suffix in general.

Right in between, one can be seen

The infix "ile" is also a suffix in general.

And I have caused a flow

Of these kinds of riddles

  • $\begingroup$ The answer is true, I had some different thoughts about that third and second clue... $\endgroup$ – OnlyF Mar 30 '18 at 13:19
  • $\begingroup$ Is this better? $\endgroup$ – Riley Mar 30 '18 at 13:24
  • $\begingroup$ Not really, no tries have been bad, just a little far-fetched, happy to drop in a hint if required $\endgroup$ – OnlyF Mar 30 '18 at 13:41
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure I understand what you were going for. Feel free to add a hint. $\endgroup$ – Riley Mar 30 '18 at 14:28
  • $\begingroup$ Ok, I think I'm getting closer. Still not entirely sure about the second clue $\endgroup$ – Riley Mar 30 '18 at 17:52

My answer is

The Bunea River

My start suggests I’m made of dough

A "bun" is a bread roll, made of dough

My suffix is one, so

"a" is indicative of "one"

Right in between, one can be seen

"une" is French for "one"

And I have caused a flow

As noted, there exists the Bunea River

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ +1 from me, I didn't know about the Bunea river, but it does fit quite nicely! Not what I was thinking though. Riley actually got the answer right already, it's just some of the clue explanations that don't really make sense yet which is holding me off to give him the tick. $\endgroup$ – OnlyF Apr 10 '18 at 20:19

Because the rest of the riddle is explained by him, I'm not going to explain the whole riddle just the part Riley missed...

I think (based on punctuation) that the two lines are the same just split apart so,

My suffix is one, so Right in between, one can be seen

Because of that specific suffix (ley) it makes his name have a 1 (l) in the middle of his name. (Whether a lower case L is a roman numeral one or just a sloppily written one I don't Know.) I'm taking the clues literally like the hint suggests.

  • $\begingroup$ I like it at lot, but not what I had in mind, I have dropped another hint. $\endgroup$ – OnlyF Apr 10 '18 at 19:40
