Foo was invented by Nescio Nomen in the 17th century.
It was also Negidius Numerius who established that N. Nomen was the original inventor of Foo (Blue 2003, pp. 17-18).
Even though Baz is sometimes confused with Foo, Baz was independently invented by Nescio Nomen.
- Nescio Nomen is not to be confounded with his distant nephew Nexio Nomen; see Adam Adams, The Nomen Dynasty in Eastern Europe, Academia Press, 1903, p. 227, footnote 7.
- A less reliable source spells the name as Nemarius (Valens 1985).
- Most manufacturers today prefer Numerius' refined Blaz over his Foo, even though at Nomen's time, Foo represented an improvement on Blaz.
