    I had to ask Google about it (a year ago) and was quite surprised to find a monster bomb called "Mother Of All Bombs"(in Bulgaria they're called vacuum bombs)-i was expecting some little famous american predator or bird of prey

    Good golly Alex. It would never be a bird of prey. It would have to be a kitty cat of some sort.

    Being a gun hunter, I thought that it may have stood for "Minute Of Angle Bow".. Kinda funny I guess.

    How's that? I checked a dictionary and found that "martin" means also "swallow".Sometimes the english is very confusing!

    Actually that is right. "Martin" is a subgroup of the "swallows" (Hirundinidae). As far as i know there is no cat 'Martin'. But that is not the reason why Martin bow are named 'Martin'. :P
