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.

I is the name of the man. Example, John met the man on the bridge. So the answer is I๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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.

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

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

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 โ€œand drewโ€ becoming Andrew. ๐Ÿ™„

YOU met a man ๐Ÿšถ on the London Bridge. He tipped his hat ๐ŸŽฉ 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 ..my 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 manโ€™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.
