- Frisbee:  The name of this spinning plastic disc had its origin in a catching game played in Bridgeport, Connecticut in the 1950s.

The idea for turning the dish into a marketable plastic product belonged to Fred Morrison, and he registered Frisbee (doubtless more commercially grabby than Frisbie) as a trademark in 1959.
