Yeah, I'm starting to come round to this understanding of the name. Whether it is Monco or Manco, the meaning does seem to refer to Clint's "one-handed" prowess (except for shooting). This really struck me as I was re-watching the scene with Baby Red last night: Eastwood deals cards, delivers beatings, does everything with his non-firing hand until he's required to shoot. Only then does he use his gun hand........

In Spanish at less is " Manco ", because he only uses his right arm for use his revolver... but in italian script it is Monco...
