  • $\begingroup$ Darn, I need to up the difficulty if these name riddles are getting solved. See #5 in the series for a challenge like that. Good job! $\endgroup$ Aug 9 '18 at 2:55
  • $\begingroup$ @XavierStanton Yeah I actually checked the #5 before I saw this one. Seems quite tough. Great work with these name riddles though. I find them really interesting. $\endgroup$
