Other Origin(s):German, Scandinavian
Take a shot on this firey name! Gun is a blazing gender-neutral name of Swedish, Scandinavian, and German origin. Meaning “battle” or “war,” Gun is derived from the word gunnr, and is a diminutive of Gunner. The earliest instance of this name being seen is on one of the world’s most famous runestones, the Rök runestone, in Sweden. We don't want to jump the gun when we say that a name like this would help baby face each obstacle they face head-on and with strength.
