An unnamed rifle

An unnamed rifle magnify

As you can see from the photo above, my Mosin-Nagant M-44 is a fire-breather. Unfortunately, it has no name as of yet. I didn’t want to name it hastily or poorly, and I wanted it to be a Russian name. I went to the website to find some suitable names. So I’ll post the list and put a poll on the forum to let everyone vote on it.

Here are the names and associated meanings according to the website:

Aleksandra – Feminine form of Alexander meaning Defender of Men (good name for a gun, no?)

Ayn – A form of Anne but here because of a certain bearer of the moniker.

Arina – Variation of Irena meaning Peace.

Arisha – A pet form of Arina.

Marfa – For A__ , I put this on the list. It means mistress of the house.

Serafima – Fiery One (appropriate given the photo.)

Valeriya – meaning to be strong.
