    I need to know a somewhat famous scientist, engineer, mathematician, etc. that has a first or last name that rhymes with "Nino."

    Also what was/is his/her CV or contribution to the field of technology, education, and of such.

    You don't remember anything about this person? Something they accomplished? How did you hear about them?

    Are you making a science poem? You can take, erm, poetic license with a very well-known name. Like Albert Einsteinino.

    no no guys. its not a specific person. as famous as possible. it can be any scientist. just needs some recognition.

    How about Bruno Zumino. He did some work in quantum field theory.

    What do you mean it's not a specific person? You just want our members to find anyone for you? Why?

    Orso Mario Corbino. Mostly remembered for having fostered Fermi and his group, but eminent enough in his own right to have two 'effects' named after him, which must be nearly unique.

    How rude :'(

    No I know how to use Wikipedia. There is a list of Italian scientists but I want make sure I am not just picking a random person. Anyone can edit Wikipedia so I'm just double checking. I don't know much of my science history either.

    I like all the responses. Thanks guys. I'll probably choose a few you guys named but keep them coming if you know any really good ones. I was hopefully looking for something the average joe already knows. Like I already of fermi, newton, and Einstein but they don't rhyme.

    Had a name that ended like that. But I don't know if that's what you want - and maybe it is time to tell us why you want it.

    No, it was not even close to rude. I asked you to explain what you are doing. Now please answer.

    It's not clear if the user is responding to lisab's question or suggestion but this may shed some light:

    Wasn't clear what he was laughing at either, which is why I asked. Is this some odd homework assignment? I had actual assignments like "draw a fence in Africa", so I drew a fence and put a giraffe next to it, got an A+. This was in high school history, we never opened our books. This teacher was always doing these weird nonsensical assignments. I could see him asking us to create a poem with ryhming names.
