Don't forget the Jimmy Olsen story with "Mysterio!" That's two Spider-Man villains whose namesakes are extremely obscure Superman characters....any others?

(Does anyone still use that old naming schtick of "insert word here"-o? It was ridiculously popular in the Silver Age. Kind of Like how all those HE-Man characters were "Something"-OR.)

Does anyone else remember the story about the society of villians and the rule for membership was that your name had to end in "O", and they got on Dr. Morrow's case because his name ended in "ow" ?

Can't recall the title this was in.

I guess this would qualify The Marx Brothers as supervillains?
