What exactly is the question here?

Big Bertha? Fat Man and Blue Boy? Charlene?

If you mean names "of" famous weapons, there's the famous German long range Krupp gun called "Big Bertha"!

I'm not trying to be an ass, but I still am not sure I understand the question.

Sting and Ankle-Biter. Tolkien used Norse literature for the Dwarves details. Vikings loved to name their weapons. Battle-Troll Leg-Biter Life-Taker Some that come to mind.

Ummm....well....I like the sound of Valhalla. For those of you who don't know, this is where Viking warriors would go after they were killed in battle. A sacred place reserved only for true warriors. I'm not sure if it's spelled like that or not.

How's about "Noisy Cricket" from [u]Men in Black[/u]? What's the name of Thor's warhammer? Odin's Thunder or something like that. How about "Harvester" or "Harbinger" or "Toy Gun" or "Dragon Slayer" or "Nylon Wonder" or "You talk'in to ME?" or "Property of JDP"

To my knowledge it is just a "Thor's Hammer". There is no other name for it.

How about Fred Saberhagen's "Book of Swords"? Coinspinner-the sword of Chance Doomgiver-the sword of Justice [8D] Dragonslicer... Townsaver-the sword of Fury Shieldbreaker... and my favorite name... Farslayer-the sword of Vengance

Anzio Annie is a famous gun name. My favorite gun names however are those the Germans gave to their Karlgerat siege mortars: Adam,Eve,Thor,Odin,Loki and Ziu. [}:)]

It's been too long since I read the series, but there was a Fantasy series about some swords-- I believe the a few of the names were: Stone Cutter Farseeker, etc. Can't remember the author's name right now. Another one was the "Blacksword" book(s)--seems like an apropriate name for a black rifle. AFARR

reply: chaut chaut is the worst gun ever made! I have to place my 02 cents in here, i seen like tales of the gun, and military blunder's displayed about that gun! yes it was a disaster. they have to remember about that time france was in war with germany YES! the Tank was new; had to deal with it, but how? same with the trench warfare with the german maxums! how are we going to deal with this? they had to quickly come up with something and fast! i mean at that time under pressure and all this new type of warfare evoled with plane's, tanks, and machineguns they had to evoled under extreme difficulties did not have the resourses to and time to develop "WALKING FIRE".

True enough. It is interesting, however, that that name of a sword comes from a book written over 1000 years ago in one of the most litiginous societies ever. It's not that different, since the lawyers were hated and feared but tolerated then, as today. They just had different rules.

[i][b]'Mjölner'[/b][/i] was the name of Thor's hammer, which, when thrown, always came back to his hand. What was the name of Natty Bumpo's rifle from 'The Leatherstocking Tales' by James Fenimore Cooper? C'mon now, don't tell me you didn't go back and reread all of the Leatherstocking Tales after you saw 'Last of The Mohicans' with Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role? What kinda 'mericans are you? Anyway? Eric The('[i]Killdeer[/i]')Hun
