what is so-and-so mean?
I do not think so. ‘So so’ is commonly used as an adjective as well as an adverb in India and also in America as explained by Parser. You your-self have endorsed this in your post while answering this thread. I'm feeling/I feel so-so ?"Thingummyjig" or "thingummybob" are nonsense words used to name objects (usually small gadgets) that you don't know or can't remember the name of.
Similarly, "so-and-so" is a slang nonsense phrase commonly used in reference to a person (or a group of people) whose name you don't know or can't remember. It may also have a mild negative connotation.
Person1: How was your tour of France?
Person2: It was great. We met that guy, you know, short guy, French president. You know, that so-and-so married to fashion model Carla Bruni.
