I Met An Old Man On London Bridge

I met an old man on London bridge,
As the sun set on the ridge,
He tipped his hat and drew his name,
And cheated at the guessing game.

What was the man’s name?

Andrew. In the third line, “and drew his name”. It works better when you say it since the spelling is a bit off when written.

OMG, Andrew only has one ‘d’ in it, this leaves the door open for 72 gazillion other answers. 🤬

No it’s not Andrew…it is a phrase written above the door at the Johnny Walker distillery in Scotland… Look at the photo of the man on a Johnny walker label…he tips his hat and drew his cane

Can’t be “Aman”. The first line says “An Old Man” not “a man” lol

Why not just Drew? At least that’s a normal spelling.

I met a man on a bridge answer to riddle

Vic says

That would be an argument. The riddle states, “old man”. Science taught me that we have young females in this world…with female names. So you cannot put a female name with “old man”. Wouldn’t sound right lol.

Frankie says

Chuck says
May 29, 2020 @ 01:24

I is the name of the man. Example, John met the man on the bridge. So the answer is I😃

The riddle I saw says “I met a man… ” and according to a friend, the correct answer is Aman. The “He tipped his hat and drew his name” could be hinting the old British tradition of hat-tipping, which is only done by men.

Bette says
May 29, 2020 @ 14:04

“He” is the one who tipped his hat so “He” is his name.

Nora says
June 1, 2020 @ 00:43

“Aman” is his name!

Avinash says

I mer A man = Aman is his name. This is an Indian name. Dead on

Salamander says

His name is He. Read it. It is obvious from the rules of English. Put John in for He and it makes more sense than “and drew” becoming Andrew. 🙄

the answered: is my name Pirming Eu

YOU met a man 🚶 on the London Bridge. He tipped his hat 🎩 and drew his name. In this riddle I told you his name, what’s his name??

in the sentence: In this riddle I told you his name

so the answer is my name name is Pirming Eu

It’s not Anddrew or Drew or even Aman. This is kind of a frustrating take on the old “Who’s on first.” comedy routine. The mans name is “WHAT”. It’s right there in the riddle.
What was the man’s name.

There is no legitimate answer.

It’s not Aman (two words, not one). It’s not Andrew. Same thing. It’s not even Drew because it’s not capitalized.

Proper nouns are capitalized. Therefore, it’s a false riddle.
