Names related to guns and firearms manufacturers are one of the most dominant types of violent names on the rise. The most popular of all: Gunner, given to over 1500 baby boys last year. Taken together with the 750 boys named homonym Gunnar, an authentic Scandinavian name meaning "bold warrior," places it among the Top 200 boys’ names. Cannon is also in the boys’ Top 1000. Other gun-related names chosen by US parents in 2014 include Trigger, Shooter, Caliber, Magnum, and Pistol. The names of gun manufacturers may have images that transcend their relationship to guns, but they’re on the rise for whatever reason and include Barrett, Remington, Kimber, Ruger, Wesson, Browning, Benelli, and Beretta.
