I took my wife and son out for mothers day brunch this morning and noticed that our waitresses name was Kimber.
I wanted to ask her about her name and how she got it but it was mothers day and I figured the wife would think I was
flirting ( Kimber was hot ) so I refrained. Thought it was interesting since I have 2 Kimbers.
Anyway got me to wondering if anyone on this forum had named their kids after a gun or manufacturer.
I could see doing that to a dog. But to a kid?

It's 2012 rammerjammer, nothing surprises me anymore :L
I had a friend in high school her name was Kimber.
There's the oldest boy Remington. The second is Ruger our little blonde son Then there are the twins...Smith and Wesson. Little daughter Colt and the next will be Glockmore...or Glock for short. JUST KIDDING. What kind of idiot would name their kids after a gun. Wait a minute. I had a baby patient named Queen Ester and then there was the one named Female (the mother didn't name her....she said the Hospital did...no joke). Then there was a girl I went to college with named Mercedes Benz....again...no joke. I guess someone naming their kid after a gun wouldn't be that unheard of....it just wasn't for me.

I wanted to name my kid misfire because he was a surprise but after getting a cold stare for 20 minutes after the suggestion I decided to give up
No guns, but I heard some lady yelling at a pair of kids at a gas station a few years ago. One was Bacardi, and the other was Impala.
Actually there's someone in our church who named their son Colt, but I don't know why they picked that name.
Been thinking about a big dog and naming it Ruger, even get the collar from Ruger web-site. We're investigating Weimaraners for now.

Have you met my sons Hi-Point, Jennings, and Bryco?
Kalashnikov is (or used to be) a fairly popular name for boys in Saharan Africa, I have read. Shows a certain lack of imagination on the parents' part, methinks.
Has to beat some of the names from the 60s, Moonbeam, Rainbow, Peace and Chastity among others.

No guns. But I delivered to a lady named Earthling once. Nice lady. But I spent the entire delivery fighting the urge to ask her to take me to her leader.

I knew a young mother who couldn't decide if she wanted to name her little girl Ashley or Tracy so she combined the two names and named her baby Ashtray.
Getting back on topic I think some Hollywood somebody recently stated that her daughters name was Beretta.
