Foo was invented by Nescio Nomen[1] in the 17th century.

A century later, Foo was refined by Negidius Numerius (Blue 2003).[2] Numerius, interestingly, also subsequently refined the Blaz that predated Foo.[3]

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.[1]
