    “Have Gun, Will Travel”, starring Richard Boone as Paladin, was a popular TV western series in the late 50s and early 60s. Paladin was an educated, sophisticated, chivalrous resident of a San Francisco hotel who would occasionally (like every week) be called upon to redress someone’s grievances for 1000 bucks – and the bad guy would always lose to Paladin’s cleverness, wits, heroism, and six-guns. Now I know why the writers named him Paladin.

    Very cool! I love it when characters have names with some underlying significance.
