What’s in a name

13 Sep

Did you ever wonder how the cooking spray PAM was named? One guess in the office was “perfect arisoled margerine”. Well, according to the company website:

The first patent for a no-stick cooking spray was issued in 1957 to Arthur Meyerhoff, Sr. and Leon Rubin, who started PAM Products, Inc.-the name stood for Product of Arthur Meyerhoff. The men later founded Gibralter Industries and developed a new product: PAM All Natural Cooking Spray.

I guess we should be glad his name wasn’t Ichabod Gottlieb!
