I Wil Call Her...

Ok, real quick. I loved all the names and I can not tell you how much I appreciated everyone giving me their thoughts and input. Really, it meant a lot to me.

I wanted a name that had meaning both historically to the gun and to me personally. Several suggestions fit one or the other, but only one fit both. I had two readers suggest the name I picked. One left a comment on the blog and one sent me an email. I will send them both a box of chocolate.

The name I chose is Anastasiya. I will use the traditional Russian spelling and it means "resurrection" It is defined as "the literal coming back to life".

I don't think I need to say anymore.

A nice, long name just like the gun. Now you need to go on a quest for Mosin humor. It is out there and it is hilarious.

Congratulations on naming the Mosin!! It really fits you as you have been resurrected with strength and determination.

May all the rounds shot out of her have a smile behind them!

Congrats on new addition to the family (don't know much about them but it sure looks like a very cool rifle!) and I love the name you decided to go with! Glad you got out and took her shooting; I actually went out and shot my new SP101 Saturday for the first time, as well...even though it was single digit temps (- 11 degrees with windchill!) and loved i (the gun, not the cold)! Look forward to learning more about your new guns along with you! ;)

I'm honored. I had no idea the name meant resurrection, but it's fitting. A weapon designed for the czars, built over a half century ago, left to languish in an armoury, now has a new life thanks to you. With proper care she will serve for decades to come. Well done, and email sent.

BTW, my M-N Tanya is 80 years old this year. I hope I'm still as good looking (and functional) when I get that age.
