Just one more thing.....

Did they ever use his first name?

Seems like i saw the answer to this somewheres.

You bet, Dixie.

I certainly didn't know his first name, midnighttoker.. but here's what I found:

Columbo's First Name


One of the biggest mysteries that have puzzled fans of the legendary Columbo series is his first name. From the pilot episode to the most recent if Columbo were ever asked for his first name he would answer Lieutenant, from his fellow police colleagues to the murder suspect he was known as Lieutenant Columbo.
Columbo - Peter Falk


It seems fitting that we don't know his first name because we only ever see Columbo on the job in the role of the LAPD detective we know and love.

Viewers only ever got wind of what Columbo was like outside of work when he was trying the trap the murder often mentioning his wife, nephews and nieces.

After years of searching and lots of speculation from fans of the show no one was any the wiser to Columbo's first name. You will her of many people trying to catch a glimpse of Lieutenant Columbo's badge when he would show his identification to a suspect. But of course when his did show his identification the camera angle wouldn't allow you a clear show of the name printed on the ID.

Well wonder no more we are able to confirm the mystery first name which is:

Lieutenant Frank Columbo.

Did you guess it correct, often people have thought it was Philip but thanks to Universal we are able to confirm it is Frank Columbo. If you have any doubt it is mentioned on the Universal UK site, I quote:

"Let Universal Playback reacquaint you with one of the greatest, most offbeat detectives of television history, Lieutenant Frank Columbo."

What is Lieutenant Columbo's first name?

Info from IMBD!
Internet Movie Database.

What is Lieutenant Columbo's first name?


Columbo's first name is never explicitly revealed in the series. However, when Columbo flashes his badge in the episode "Dead Weight" (Season 1 Episode 3), the name 'Frank' can clearly be seen on his ID.

In the german DUB befriended police detectives occasionally call him Frank

INFO FROM IMDB..Sorry, my mistake..

Kraven, this is where I got the info about Roberta Maxwell.
She is doing a play this month on Broadway, have not seen her in a few weeks..Keeping an eye on her property.

Well, 2 sources confirm that it's Frank. I know I never knew what it was when I was watching.
If you see anything suspicious at Roberta's place, call the cops... Don't put on a trench coat and investigate.

I have never seen anything suspicious on Roberta's property, very quiet around here. We are the only two homes within 200 yards..But I am ready if I do see any suspicious activity. I have a conceal and carry permit in NYS. Had to get the permit when I was guarding a government building with secret documents and other stuff. I thought I told you about it one time. It could also housed 100 adults for about 3 months, in an emergency from New York City.

Yup, I remember you telling me about that.
