Oh wait, I get it now.

What it means is, if the name starts with a b, f, or m, that consonant is not added if it would be doubled, e.g. Billy becomes "Billy, Billy, bo-illy, Banana-fana fo-filly, Fee-fi-mo-milly, Billy!" -- the b is dropped only at the point where it would be prefaced with another b, but not at the point where it would be prefaced with an f or an m.

Neither of the two solutions below follows this rule, right?
