[DID YOU KNOW] The name Gundam was originally a blend of "gun" and “freedom"

According to Bandai South Asia, the word was originally "Gundom", a portmanteau of the words "gun" and "freedom".

Creator Yoshiyuki Tomino then changed the name to "Gundam" to evoke the idea of the robots being used like a dam to hold back enemies.
