As I’ve mentioned before, one of my top ten questions is about the machine’s name, bombe. I have never read a definitive answer as to the origin of the name, but one theory is that the Polish cryptologists were fond of an afternoon ice cream treat. I have not checked for information about the dessert for many years an easy internet search just turned up what may be an excellent source
