Starts with a name, ends with a name

Starts with a charge, ends with a charge

Starts with an element, ends with an element

Would be fun to guess this one! (May be more than one?)

A long shot - it may be a

Billion - it is 1 with nine zeroes and may be fun to be $1,000,000,000 in credit.

Starts with a name, ends with a name

Bill and say Lion

Starts with a charge, ends with a charge

Charge - bill, charge - ion

Starts with an element, ends with an element

B- boron / Bi - bismuth, N - nitrogen

I guess this depends on your idea of fun, but I got

politician

because it starts with

the name Pol (as in), the charge P (as in), and the element P (as in)

and ends with

the name Ian (as in), the charge N (as in) and the element N (as in).

Like I said, it might fulfil some people's definition of a good time, but it definitely

has 9+1=10 letters.

Is it:

ACED?

Starts with a name, ends with a name

ACE is a name, as is ED (short for Edward)

Starts with a charge, ends with a charge

I'm thinking electrical charge here - AC is alternating current. I'm a bit unsure about the end, but ED stands for Electricity Duty, the amount of money you are charged for electricity (so a different kind of charge)

Starts with an element, ends with an element

AC is the symbol for Actinium and D is Deuterium.

Is it

comic? (funny or amusing, a comedian)

Nine and one:

far-fetched...comic = comedian: Co (cobalt) - chemical element group 9, Na (sodium) - chemical element group 1

Starts with a name, ends with a name:

com is a domain name and Mic is a name

Starts with a charge, ends with a charge:

C is a symbol for Coulomb - the standard unit of electric charge

Starts with an element, ends with an element:

C is also a symbol of carbon, an element

This, is, without a doubt, not the answer the OP is looking for, but I think it works.

Technically this is two words, but:

Disintegration beam!

Starts with a name, ends with a name:

DIS is the stock ticker for Disney, which is named after the person who founded the company. I have to reach a bit for the name at the end, but the right half of M (the very, very end) is N, which is the name of a Pokemon Trainer

Starts with a charge, ends with a charge:

Discharge and Charge Beam are both Pokemon moves.

Starts with an element, ends with an element:

D is used as the abbreviation for deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen, and Am is the abbreviation for americium.

  • $\begingroup$ It is one word I am looking for. Very common one too. $\endgroup$ – DEEM Dec 20 '18 at 13:12
