Reavley (1990) " Rambo Litigators: Pitting Aggressive Tactics Against Legal Ethics". Pepperdine Law Review, Vol 17. No 3 I wonder if Sylvester Stallone was trying to blur the line deliberately between a war hero and war activist? I doubt it. Would Sheriff Teasle made comments differently for a Vietnam war soldier and war activist? I doubt it. Both were considered "undesirables" and likely to cause troubles in an otherwise quiet or "boring" town, so neither were wanted.David Morrell says that in choosing the name Rambo, he was inspired by "the sound of force" in the name of Rambo apples, which he encountered in Pennsylvania. These apples, in turn, were named for Peter Gunnarsson Rambo, who sailed from Sweden to America in the 1640s, and soon the name would flourish in New Sweden. The name Rambo was likely derived from a shortened form of Ramberget (a hill on the Hisingen island in Gothenburg, where Peter Gunnarsson was born) plus "bo" (meaning "resident of"). Today, many of his descendants can still be found in this region of the US. Morrell also felt that its pronunciation was similar to the surname of Arthur Rimbaud, the title of whose most famous work, A Season in Hell, seemed to him "an apt metaphor for the prisoner-of-war experiences that I imagined Rambo suffering".

He was granted the first name "John" as a reference to the song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again". [6] [7] Umland, Rebecca A. (2016). Outlaw Heroes as Liminal Figures of Film and Television.
