gun-related names for boys?

may be OT, but could use some ideas. Got a baby on the way and the wife thinks it's a boy. We have a girl name but she hates all my suggestions for boys.

Bren
Sten
Colt
Savage
Hawken (cousin named Hawken so might not fly)
John Moses
Winchester
LeMat
Beaumont–Adams
Whitney
Leavitt
Walker
Webley
Vickers
Kropatschek
Browning
Walther?
Rohrbaugh
Mannlicher-Schönauer
Luftminenwerfer (we could call him Luftie)


any other ideas I can submit to be shot down by my wife?

Glock! But seriously, Smith or Remington are possibilities. Of your list , I prefer Colt.

And congratulations on the new baby. That is always a joy.

A friend named his son Shiloh,used to tell him his parents named him after a rifle. Every time I said that his mother would give me the evil eye.

Remington and you could call him Remy for short. Or Makarov and call him Mak for short.

I've seen a Colt on TV a few times.

Bullitt (Steve McQueen)
Pistol (Shakespeare)
Gunnar (Myrdal)
Magnum (PI)
Trigger if your boy's a stallion
or Snubby if he takes after you.

I have a friend named Winchester who goes by "Win."

If your last name happens to be "Smith" naming him LC would be excellent.

"Stevens" would work, but might not obvious enough as gun related.

How about "Smith Wesson" xxxx?

"Marlin" could work, though the name could be mistaken for the fish.

"John Browning," maybe?

"John Ross" (as in Unintended Consequences) might slip under the wife radar. Or maybe "Henry Bowman."

"Tom Knapp" might also get by her.

Mauser could be a good boy or girls name.
Walther is doable but might be easier if you chop it down to Walter.

This makes me think of a guy I knew years back. First name "Thomas," middle name "Colt."

His parents had originally planned to pin four monikers in front of the surname: Thomas Magnum Colt Seavers.

"Henry" and "Remington" seem like good options to me.

Not gun related.... but the men in my family have their first and middle names taken form famous generals or admirals....

i.e.

George Washington Smith
Robert Lee Jones
Bernard Montgomery Cook
George Patton Ward
Sam Houston Walters
Andrew Jackson Jones


I think it's a good tradition

I really like Henry and tried to name our last boy that. No dice. Not weird enough for her.

Luger weird enough? If she wants it even more weird, how about Ballistic Coefficient?

Well... Our son was named after my uncle and Dave's Grandfather- Lee Roger aka LR. Unfortunately my Dad and a certain unnamed idiot that shall remain my brother insist on calling him Lee Enfield.

We can be gun related without saddling the poor kid with a cutesy name. Most of your ideas have a more usual masculine name component. You would know, we would know, the left liberal grammar school teacher would not.

Bren Brno - Enfield No, don't.
Sten - Reginald Shepard + Harold Turpin + Enfield Harold, maybe.
Colt - Samuel Colt
Savage - Arthur William Savage
Hawken (cousin named Hawken so might not fly) Samuel & Jacob Hawken
John Moses - also brother Matthew Sandefur and son Val Allen Browning I doubt Sandefur would do well these days.
Winchester - Oliver also Walter Hunt, Lewis Jennings, Benjamin Tyler Henry,
LeMat - Jean Alexandre
Beaumont–Adams - Frederick Edward Blackett Beaumont, Robert Adams.
Whitney - Eli
Leavitt - Daniel
Walker - Samuel Hamilton
Webley - Philip
Vickers - Edward
Kropatschek - Alfred
Browning - see above under John Moses
Walther - Carl Wilhelm Freund
Rohrbaugh - Karl
Mannlicher-Schönauer - Ferdinand and Otto Maybe not.
Luftminenwerfer - I can't find the actual designer at Brno.

You get the idea. Everybody in the gun business has a first name that you could use for little .1 K per day and nobody but us gun nuts would appreciate it. As it probably should be.

Recent kids of my acquaintance include Levi (so biblical gun industry folks like Matthew, Samuel, Daniel), Baxter, Henry (as in B. Tyler), and Jack (not short for John, just Jack, as in Reacher.)

If Mannlicher is out you could go with Kimber. How about Cooper, Westley, or Parker? I got, you could name him Bushmaster.
