If you have been to the candy store you probably remember the odd name and brands of the Swedish candy and chocolate. They all may have odd names but they all have a unique story. Here is the first name.
The name Rambo, can be dated back to the 17th-century Swedish immigrant Peter Gunnarsson Rambo. According to folk legend it is derived from the mountain Ramberget ("Raven's Hill") in Gothenburg, whence the Swedish immigrants to Delaware originated in the 17th century.
John James Rambo is the main protagonist of the 1972 novel First Blood and its 1982 film adaptation. While he was portrayed as a more heroic character in the film, the novel portrays him as a ruthless, psychotic murderer and unlike the movie counterpart, this version of Rambo slaughters innocent people.
John Rambo was a soldier of the U.S. Army who fought in the Vietnam War, and he was a member of the elite force, the Green Beret. Rambo was so iconic that he became a legend. In real life, Americans indeed had a Rambo. He was Master Sergeant Raul Perez “Roy” Benevidez, aka Tango Mike Mike.
