Where does interrobang come from? I fell in love with the interrobang many years ago - a punctuation mark that describes me. I have a bold, exclamatory personality with the desire to question and wonder. What about the interrobang itself? It was created in the 60s by advertising exec Martin K. Speckter who needed a mark to convey rhetorical questions. The name is from crossing "interrogatio", Latin for “a rhetorical question” or “cross-examination” and "bang" which is programmer for the exclamation point.
