John Rambo creator, author David Morrell, got his character’s name from, of all things, an apple. When attempting to come up with a name for his violent protagonist, Morrell bit into a particularly delicious apple.
The apple was a Rambo, cultivated by a 17th-century Swedish settler named Peter Gunnarson Rambo, and reminded the easily influenced writer of the pronunciation of the French poet Arthur Rimbaud, who was famous his work ‘A Season In Hell’. So Rambo is not so much a warrior poet as a warrior apple. Same.
