Westerns, both in TV and film, have some of the best one-word titles of any genre. Whether they take the straightforward route and use a character name or they pick a vaguely related Old West term, it's hard to beat monikers like Rawhide, Lancer and McLintock!

With the sheer number of Western stories being told from the 1930s to the 1970s, it's no wonder many names were reused. Many small-screen series took their names from older Western films — even if there weren't many other similarities.

Here are 12 single-word titles from films and television shows. Can you guess what each name belongs to or if it is both?
