I'm getting ready to look for a new dog, as mine is getting on in years, and was thinking I'd like to give him/her a gun related name.
What gun related name have you given to your pet(s)? :)

When I was growing up, we adopted a pair of sibling golden retrievers that came pre-named as Smith & Wesson. My brother has a dog named Ruger. I've known people with dogs named Bullet and Colt.

That said, Sam is the best name a dog can have.

What kind of dog are you going to get? I think that matters when naming as well...Or at least what size.:)

I kind of like the name Mosin(except pronounce it mow-sin)

I got my german short haired pointer from a couple that went a little pet and bird dog crazy when they had a toddler and an infant. Really nice couple that was a little overwhelmed by all the animals (3 dogs, 6 cats and several large birds, IIRC) and kids in a bungalow.

Their weimeramer (sp?) was named "Parker" and his best buddy (now our family pet:banghead:) is named "Hale". Really nice dog, just a knucklehead who runs, and runs and runs, and runs, everywhere......

My cousins had a beagle when I was young named Shotgun. Kind of an awkward name, but whatever.

Texas Colt

When I was a kid, I had a beagle named Bullet. Now I have a lab-retriever mix named Sam, after Sam Colt. I have another black lab-mix named Hank, after the series of children's' books titled "Hank the Cowdog, Head of Ranch Security" .

I few months ago, I brought home a stray yellow lab. I named him Ranger. After a trip to the vet, we found out he had a real bad case of heart worms and had to be put down. :(

Or how about Barrett?

You didn't say what kind of dog you're thinking of getting, the breed of dog could help us give you the appropriate name.

I am morally against it.

A dog named Bullet almost killed Stephen King. It was distracting the idiot driving the van. The same idiot had another dog named pistol.

Anything that nearly kills the greatest author of all time is automatically on my black-list!

We have fun with our pet names over here. To date:

Chuck Norris: Black Lab / pit bull mutt.
Chewbacca: Cat
Harrison (Ford): Chewbacca's brother.

If'n we ever spawn human male twins I've been given the green light to name them Smith and Wesson.

I've always though Arisaka would make a good dog name.

Another good name is Winchester.

Or, if you don't want three syllables, you could just use CHESTER.

"Magnum". I think it's one of the best gun names.
If it was female would call her "Magie"?

I have a dog named ammo. It is a registered german shepard so it whole name is "Pass The AMMO". I have a cat named gunpowder.

One named bullet. One named Remington. And best of all "Chopper". A black Chow.

Biten'est SOB you ever seen. That dog would bite the Pope. He just didn't care.

Also the best rat hunter.

Have you heard the song with the line, If i die before i wake. Feed Jake?

Well i changed it to, If i die before its proper, feed Chopper.

I really miss that dog.

November 30, 2007, 02:56 AM
my friends brother's dog is named Ruger, they also have a rabbit named Smith, and another named Wesson.

I like Remington or Remmy, Winchester is cool as well.

How about hornady?

Rubin. When a dog plays tug of way you can say you have a "straight pull Rubin".

My black lab is named Bullet.

Jorg Nysgerrig
November 30, 2007, 03:22 AM
How about hornady?

I would pass on that name. You'll inevitably refer to him as Horny. Sure, yelling, "Here, Horny! C'mere Horny!", saying "Yes, who's my good Horny boy. That's right", and informing the vet, "My dog is Horny" might be fun for awhile, but at some point, you're going to slip up and have to explain it.

gunsmith
November 30, 2007, 03:23 AM
it got shortened to remmy of course.
the last doggie friend was a rat terrier/chiuaha mix named Spartan but he answers to sparky....not really gun related but kind of "molon labe" related

I like Enfield, Sounds good for a retriever.

or you could go with:

Berdan
Bren
Buttstock (good name for a stupid dog)
Carbine (smaller dog)
Druganov
Flash
Galil
Gewehr
Hammer
IMBEL (if you are into FALs)
Makarov
Mannlicher (especially fitting on a mutt that won't stop licking you)
Rimfire
Rossi
Sturmgewher
Springfield (sounds good for a spaniel)
Tokerev (Tokerev and Makerov if you have a pair of dogs)
Weatherby
Walther (sounds good for a basset hound)

You could check dogster and see how many dogs have the name. We looked for something different. benelli is a good choice for a hunter. Patton or willie, Just a few thoughts. Patrick Marley was a black lab named after bob, JC is the new lab, after johnny cash, the pup in black.

I name my pets after mountains and mountain trails. Lots of boys names, not many girls, but they are there if you look hard enough.

I'll vote for bullet for a male dogs name when it comes to guns. Annie Oakley for females, or Norma.

The new dog is Skip, but I should have called him Bob.....for Bob Barker.

My German Shepherd was already named when we got her or I would have named her Mauser or Schmeiser. MG42 would have sounded kind of wierd.

I wanted to name my other dog Snots, in honor of Randy Quaid's dog in Christmas Vacation but the Head of the Naming Committee/CFO/CEO/COO wouldn't go for it.

Our two pitty mixes are named Jimmy (Col. James B. Beam) and Rose (give my love to Rose, J. Cash) respectively.

For gun related names, I would recommend Maggie for a female dog (magnum) and "johnny" or some derivative for a male (john moses browning, dontcha know).

My alaskan husky would have to be named Husqvarna.

Kel-tec has kind of a nice sound for a dog that is small but mighty.

Lothar or Lilja would be good for a barrel-chested lab.

And of course Arf 15 for a black lab

If you needed a specific mauser for your schnauzer, you could call him Bolo.

But I'm thinking Dillon Aero might be best for a registered dog.

And Brno if it was necessary to use a czech line to keep him in close.

If you name your dog Magnum people will think you're a big fan of 80's TV. Actually it would be a good fit for the Hawaiian shirts everyone seems to like for CCW.

Not sure if some has suggested them or not:
-Moses or Brownie after JMB.
-A.C.P. which I would shorten to CP in use
-Lightening after the old Colt
-Beowulf
-Rimfire
-Nylon
-BreakFree (good one for a beagle or setter)
-Red Dot (for an Irish Setter)
-FMJ (Jay for short)
-Clay

1. there was a litter of anatolians that went with the gun theme. (i only met ruger though)
2. he's not named for hornady, but my boss has a hound dog thats name IS horny dog (and yes, its because he was a horny dog 'till she had him nutered)
3. my lab mix, southwest, answers to *****head.

my vote would be for one of the odder names. i work in a kennel. Ruger, Bullet, Chester and all the other names that EVERYONE uses gets old quick!
we had a black dog board and his name was Blackie. *rolling eyes* why couldn't these people think up a NAME for there dog.
my vote:
Kalishnokov
.45 ACP (maybe auto for short?)
Gaston

and dad always said if he got two rotties he'd name them Hecklern and Koch (pronounce it correctly guys!)

rust collector
December 1, 2007, 06:16 PM
Dad had a dog named Nitro. Gunslick, Blue Wonder, Dewey or Otis might also be fun spins on cleaning products.

Then there's Cordite or SMLE (Smelly) from the UK, Nobel or Carl Gustav or Bofors from Sweden, Lahti or Suomi for a Finnish twist.

Tula, Ishevsk or Izmash are Russian manufacturers. Stechkin & Margolin are lesser known designs.

You could call her Ackley, and after obedience training she would be Ackley Improved. Also Townsend, Whelen, Jordan, Oakley, Bogardus and Topper (after Ad Topperwein, legendary trick shooter).

The possibilities are endless.

We have two dogs named Mosin and Mauser. That joke was circulating 7 years ago that went - "you know you're a gun nut if ...you name your kids...."
Around the same time, the kids found a litter of abandoned puppies on their way to school. We adopted two, and when the wife asked me what to name them, I humorously answered "Mauser and Mosin". (I collect Milsurps.) She thought it was cute, and it stuck. Here are Mauser and Mosin,left to right. They're acquiring target lock on the neighbor's cat.

Hey Mike, whenever you are calling for Mosin, how do you pronounce it?

BTW I love that name for a dog. If got Zeus(my German Shepherd) a couple of years later, his name would be Mosin.


I say Moz-in but it should be Mo-seen. See:

Barb as the patron saint of firearms, gunners and gunsmiths, Saint Barbera.
Keep the name short, easier on you and the dog. Glock, CZ, HK, Colt would work. Avoid S names. They confuse the dog in training as stop, stay etc.
Combat Masterpiece would get old.

"Hiram" or "Maxim"

Maybe "Gat" or "Gatling"

or just "Buttstock" if the dog is a butthead.
