===Origin===
 
====Name origin====
Tympole may be a combination of ''{{wp|timpani}}'' (a low-pitched drum-like sound or the sensation felt in the abdomen when a drum is struck), ''{{wp|tympani}}'' (a type of drum), or ''tympanic membrane'' ({{wp|eardrum}}; referring to the bumps on each side of its head), and ''{{wp|tadpole}}''. It may also involve ''tempo''.
 
Otamaro may be a combination of おたまじゃくし ''otamajakushi'' (''tadpole'' or ''musical notes'') and まろ ''maro'' (''an affectionate suffix'' or ''shaved eyebrows'', the latter referring to the markings above its eyes).
