I think this is a case where a people take the meaning of the word from context and might have had many examples of dumb hunters named Nimrod in literature over the last couple of centuries.

Another good example of a biblical word that is misused constantly because of people figuring it out from the context is "prodigal". "The Prodigal son has returned" makes people think it means wandering or traveling when in reality it means wasteful or profligate.
