What's In A Name?

Jenn asked me what I'm planning on naming the bow. Short answer is, I have no idea. But it does need a name, I think. There's a long tradition of naming implements of destruction, altho it's usually swords. Or B-52 bombers. I can't find a lot of names for bows, generally. One exception is from Tolkien, Belthronding, the bow of Beleg Cuthalion. That's about it. Legolas's bow is unnamed. Same with Bard, the slayer of Smaug. Robin Hood didn't name his bow, or Orion, or Apollo, or Artemis, or anybody else, so far as I can tell. It's tragic.

So, any suggestions?
