The following was posted by Loren Haroldsen on the Antique Fan Collectors website:

"The term Ming comes from no HUM, the HUM is missing from Humming, leaving just ming.  The blades were actually designed by a New Yorker in 1912 for an airplane propeller. Eck either bought or leased the rights in 1912 or 1913.  There was a modification for the new ones out in 17 I suspect."
