I kind of like this name, but I don't like how the word "gun" is in it.

A famous bearer of this name is Swedish actor Gunnar Björnstrand (1909-1986), who starred in 23 Ingmar Bergman films. One of my favourite actors.

Also don't forget the Gre-No-Li Swedish trio who defended Inter Milan, Gunnar Gren, Gunnar Nordahl, along with Nils Liedholm.

Very dated in Sweden.

I'm German-American thus am quite familiar with Günther and Günter, yet I didn't realize this was a related name until I looked it up just now. I've only met Gunners/Gunnars in the U.S. and just thought it was some sort of tough-guy name given by lower-class white people who dress their children in camouflage when the family doesn't have any actual military connection; it seems to fit with the children I've met who have this name.

Gunnar is my brother's name. Other than a few young boys that couldn't be bothered to listen to how people say it, he's never been called 'Gunter' or 'Gunther'. He is never thought of as a violent person, even though 'gun' is in his name.

I'm Swedish, and here, it's extremely far away from macho, mostly a name of old men.

And it's not at all pronounced like your "gun" (that sound is our "A") or "Günther" (our "Y"), it's a completely different sound.
