Speargun names

  • Roland, the mighty French Knight named his beloved and legendary sword "Durandal", King Arthur named "Excalibur" his magical sword. There are some weapons with personality. I have a speargun that has killed a bunch of fishes and I want to give a name to it. For instance, we have the legendary "Double trouble" of Don Paul ;)


    So far I have a couple that pops in my mind:



    1-"El mero mero" In spanish a "mero" is a grouper and a quintessential prototype at the same time. " El mero mero2 (which is a pun) means both, " The grouper grouper", " The one and only" and "the one and only grouper"


    2-"ültima sombra" "Last shadow" I gotta admit thet I got that one from Avatar´s the movie. Sounds real cool.



    Any thought or insight into this subject?


    Thanks in advance

  • I'm sentimental with my dive gear, so I appreciate naming spearguns. Technically they're just tools.. but bonds can form, wether it's because you built it with your own hands or because it's taken more fish than you can count. I've never been verbal about it, but all the while I was building my last gun.. I kept thinking of the name Ahab, perhaps I should make it official. ültima sombra sounds pretty bad ass..

  • Ahab is great! Oh, you sea o you shadow of all things mock us to death with your shadowing" ..

  • "Araceli", my wife's name. Lucky gun.


    Jake's is "Blue Killer"....whooaaa...haha


    Other 55 is the "Green Monster".


    "Big Riffe"....the Baja Plus


    LIttle Riffe.....C3...or "Mo's Gun".


    "Popgun"...the Biller 48 my buddy Jorge left at my house that we never use.

  • ültima sombra Is a bad ass name. Although it should be a black gun lol.


    I call my speardiver carbon 120 "carbon120" or actually more often "my gun" but it deserves a better name. I should call it "Main Squeeze" for how much I love it and use it.


    When I built my hole gun I named it "Smidgen" kind of on accident. I used the stainless handle of a measuring cup for a trigger guard, and since the pinch and smidgen cups are useless i had a choice of the two. Smidgen was perfect.


    My new bluewater gun I'm planning to name Megalodon. The baddest sea creature ever. A fitting name I think. I have a Megalodon tooth tattooed on my chest as well.

  • Guinevere had green eyes Like yours, mi'lady like yours
    When she'd walk down through the garden In the morning after it rained
    Guinevere drew pentagrams Like yours, mi'lady like yours
    Late at night when she thought That no one was watching at all
    She shall be free
    As she turns her gaze, down the slope To the harbor where I lay
    Anchored for a day
    Guinevere had golden hair Like yours, mi'lady like yours
    Streaming out when we'd ride Through the warm wind down by the bay
    Yesterday
    Seagulls circle endlessly I sing in silent harmony We shall be free

  • I had a gun called "silver bullet". It was a pipe gun that I wrapped in duct tape just to show that camo is useless....


    I also have a "Marco's toy", a Mo-gun, "el matatán" and some others that doensn't have a name. Yet...

    Marco Melis

    A bad day fishing is ALWAYS better than a good day at work.

  • Hahaha Marco was silver bullet also an insult to coors?
    If so that is hilarious. If not, it should be.


    Coors lite is a cheap, bad, America beer, nick named the silver bullet

    i like to spear fish

  • This is my "Groper Bloper", the gun with the chin mounted 12 gauge powerhead on the right. The name just rhymed better than Groper Blaster and we could not spell "Grouper" back then I guess. It was loosely based on the Undersee "Reefmaster" sitting to the left and there were two of them made with a third powerhead going to another guy who was going to do his own version.
