Etymology

Can anyone clarify what "fob" means...is it an acronym? abbreviation?

It is actually a word, fob is a adornment that hangs from a chain or ring. --Thax 21:46, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Please add the etymology to the article. Jidanni (talk) 04:19, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

It is NOT synonymous with the term keychain. There are several Mercedes models where there is no actually key for the car, only keyless entry, a fob you keep in your pocket, an da start button which starts the car only if the fob is somewhere in the cabin.
