Dear 100 Hour Board,

Was Max Kiss (the Hungarian inventor of Ex-Lax) born under a different name? To me, the name 'Max Kiss' just doesn't sound like a Hungarian name.

A: Dear Stake Dance,

Looks like your European name recognizer is off. Kiss seems to be a very common Hungarian name, a variation of kicsi, meaning little. Some examples:And since I don't want you to be disappointed, a joke I found while researching Mr. Kiss:

Pharmacist Max Kiss developed Ex-Lax in 1906; he's been on the run ever since!
