Pepto is derived from the word Peptic, an adjective that refers to any part of the body that normally has an acidic lumen, for instance, the stomach.
The Bismol bit comes from the name of the active ingredient: Bismuth subsalicylate.

Yes. I've taken pepto bismol once because I had slight nausea. After taking it, I had severe stomach pains, vomitting, and trouble breathing. I'm pretty sure it was some kind of allergic reaction. If you are allergic to asprin, you probably shouldn't take pepto bismol because it contains a type of Salicylate, which some people are allergic to.
