And in this rhyme I said his name.

What is his name?

Just a suggestion.... next time you may want to hide the name with other letters surrounding the parts of the hidden word too make it harder. Did that make sense? Probobly not! Please don't be offended by this, it's just a suggestion, I hate it when people get mad at me for making suggestions! And even if you don't take my advice, your teaser is still way better than mine are! I love these kinds of teasers!

Hey gokaran, it could be Sam too, from the word 'same'. I saw 'sam' and didn't even bother to look further...

Stupid riddle, your answer was "Andrew" yet that name never appeard in the riddle, yet you said it does. Further you never said a name at all, there was a name hidden in the text, try the word search category next time.

I have never heard this riddle before, but I found his name anyway. I can't believe I got it right.

Hrsemn, you just said that you didn't 'see' the name Andrew. But in the riddle it clearly stated that in the riddle he SAID the name. There was no information about it actually being hidden in the words
