Default Good name for a S&W 30-1

First off, I name all of my guns. They all have a Spanish name, usually shortened to something easier to remember, but has something to do with the gun itself. For those unfamiliar with my particular gun that I need help naming, it is a 2" snub-nosed .32 S&W Long 6 shot. Here is a list of my current gun names for you have an idea of how I name my guns:

Desy - Desmyn - Spanish for bad behavior - Glock 22
Ases - Asesino - Spanish for slayer - Remington 1911
Cat - Recatar - Spanish for hide - Ruger LCP
Auge - El Auge - Spanish for boom - Mossberg 500
Pot - Potro - Spanish for pony - Colt 1908
Serpent - La Serpiente - Spanish for Snake - Cobra FS380
Mary - Mariah - Name of the western wind - Winchester 1400
Big T - El Toro - Spanish for bull, which is astrological sign for Taurus - Taurus PT25

I have yet to come up with a suitable Spanish name for my S&W and it's only proper it get named as the rest of my collection is. Any suggestions people?

It doesn't matter what you call it; like the legless dog, it won't come any way.

I have decided to name it Trey, which is shortened for poco treinta y dos which is Spanish for Little Thirty-Two

I like El Gordo more. Its slightly ironic because it means "The Fat" and there's nothing fat about a .32.

Also, my wife thinks "pequeño" is the word you want. She says "poco" is basically "a little," as in "some" or "a little bit." She says "pequeño" describes something's size. In other words, poco is the amount of something, and pequeño is the size.


*shrug* who knows. I don't hablo.
