comment What is the difference between でなくand ではなく?
@Tim: I think your first example could use だけではなく if you want to place emphasis on the "not only by" part, however the other two are 決まり文句 as you mention. Also, the last sentence would be strange if you put emphasis on the denial part. Your reasoning about ではありません is correct.

comment Is it true that the word “Omar” means “baby toilet” in Japanese?
Yes, you're right, I was thinking of まる not おまる. I remember reading about it somewhere and I was going off of memory. Thanks for the detailed info.

Don't worry, a common English name "Ben" can also have negative connotations, however, there are many words with similar sounds in Japanese, so people do not usually think about stuff like that.

It should be noted that the word おまる has been around for a long time (perhaps the Heian Period).
