Gun used to be a very common girls name in Sweden, it's not used much anymore because it's considered a bit old fashioned. In Swedish the name/word Gun doesn't mean gun as in the weapon, the word for gun is pistol. The name Gun comes from the old Norse term "Gunnr" meaning battle, in Norse mythology "Gun/Gunn" is mentioned as one of the Valkyries who together with Rota and Skuld rode into battle to chose which warrior would die. One of my aunt's is named Gun and she told me that it was very awkward introducing herself when she visited America, because in America gun = pistol and is has very negative connotations.

Sure, you may be a member of the NRA, but this is taking it a little too far.
This is not a good idea.
