    Need a name for a new handgun

    Today a Kel-Tec PF-9 followed me home to be my backup/deep concealment/jogging gun.

    My wife who is not a gun person, has asked me to name all of my firearms so that she might be able to identify them better (it has worked thus far).

    Rules: it must be the name of a man in pop culture (music, film, literature..... preferably not too obscure) who uses a woman's name.

    Examples: Loretta; Monty Python's Life of Brian (my 1911's name)
    Betty; Kung-Pow, Enter the Fist (name of my Glock 23)
    Sue; Boy Named Sue (name of my Taurus .357 magnum)
    Alice; Alice Cooper (her future 1911)

    These names and Marylin are taken or reserved. Ideas?

    Marion is a more gender neutral name. I'm trying to avoid those. Lesley and Dale won't work either.

    Marylin Manson - Rock/pop singer
    Reserved for a future revolver

    Boy George, In the old days he looked like a female Believe he group was Culture Club
    George is a boy's name; won't work.

    Tiny Tim, Acted gay
    Tim is also a boy's name; sexuality is irrelevant to this criteria.

    I vote for Lola

    Anyone else remember the Kinks?

    I met her in a club down in old soho
    Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola [lp version:
    Coca-cola]
    C-o-l-a cola
    She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
    I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said lola
    L-o-l-a lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

    Well Im not the worlds most physical guy
    But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
    Oh my lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola
    Well Im not dumb but I cant understand
    Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
    Oh my lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

    If it's for her, try this.

    Call it "Secret", it's strong enough for a man, but made for a woman

    Sorry, but I'd scrap this particular naming scheme, pronto. This particular scheme (a woman's name used by a man) seems like a deliberate ploy to limit the number of firearms you can purchase. Devious. Very devious.

    I agree though, this is a ploy to limit you!

    Beat me to it! Jackie definitely fits the PF9 as stated by rhinokrk. Small and slim but packs a big punch is right on!

    Trust me, this is not a limiting factor on my purchases. Gun comes first then name. If I should wind up running out of names, I'll change the criteria or go without.

    Lola is a great suggestion, but for some reason seems more appropriate for a large revolver.

    Also recommended by my facebook friends: Jayne from the series Firefly.

    How about a woman who uses a man's name, in pop culture?

    The anorexic and svelte "James" (as in, runway model James King, or "Jamie") might do, for the PF9.
