I guess he didn't see my post on the subject.

Michael Pennington's wonderful "Hamlet: A User's Guide" refers in
passing to some articles on Polonius' name. Maybe Corambis is his
personal name and Polonius is a title, like Coriolanus, awarded when the
old guy helped "smite the sledded Polacks on the ice." So no matter how
sententious he is in the play, he was military hot stuff once.
