Peyo invented the name  during a meal he was having with his friend André Franquin.  Peyo, forgetting  the word for "salt", asked Franquin (in French) to pass the schtroumpf.  Franquin responded saying "Here's the Schtroumpf — when you are done schtroumpfing, schtroumpf it back.".  The rest of that weekend they continued speaking in schtroumpf language.  Later The name was changed to Smurf.
