According to Tracii Guns:

The initial idea with Axl was “Hey, let’s just write and record and we’ll go out and play new songs.” And somehow we came up with the name Guns and Rose, which was just his last name and my last name. And then within five minutes Axl’s like, “Nah, man, Guns and Roses.” And I’m like, “Yeah, that’s a great band name.”

Actually back in the day it was Duff 'Rose' McKagan - in his book Duff mentions that he and Axl (when they had similar hair cuts) were called "the Rose brothers". Cool

Recently I re-watched parts of "Terminator II" and had to laugh at the scene when Arnie walks in with a bouquet of roses and is hiding a gun in it, clearly a reference to GN'R. XD
