Nomen Omen is an application for Ralph W. Hull's Pop Eyed Popper Deck created by David Acer and released by The Camirand Academy of Magic in 1990 with a photo-illustrated instruction booklet written by Gary Ouellet. A deck is introduced with the name of a person written on the back of every card. Two cards are then freely chosen and prove to match two predictions made by the magician, one predicting a chosen card, the other a chosen name.

In Smoke and Mirrors (1991), John Bannon credits Nomen Omen as the inspiration for his name-deck trick, DeTour de Force.
