Mome. n.s. A dull, stupid blockhead, a stock, a post: this owes its original to the French word momon, which signifies the gaming at dice in masquerade, the custom and rule of which is, that a strict silence is to be observed; whatsoever sum one stakes another covers, but not a word is to be spoken; from hence also comes our word mum for silence. Hanmer.
Mome, malthorse, capon, coxcomb, idiot, patch!
Either get thee from the door, or sit down at the hatch. Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.
