At this time Martin Baker do not have a naming protocol. So the field is wide open, Swords, such as Rapier, Sabre, Scimitar and Cutlass are all possible, Though I an thinking on a different line myself!

But the powers that be prefer alliteration.
 
Fairey are using, fish for their aircraft names, Hawkers are using winds for their fighters, De haviland have been using birds and insects. Blackburn have used both Birds and fish, so there really is not a hard and fast rule book. So is there a meme that suites Martin Baker and their aircraft.
if we were to go with bladed weapons then perhaps the name Steleto would be appropiate.

Naming was not based on manufacturer, but use -

Martin-Baker Meteor, Marauder or Martlet (the carrier version with Fowler triple flaps and leading edge slat)

IIRC the Hispano did not take well to synchronising, so wingroot and engine mounts are out. In OTL the MB3 had six 2mm cannons mounted in the wing as designed, ITTL there are only two in each wing but more amunition for each gun as these are belt fed rather than drum magazine fed.
As there are three aircraft based on the same airframe, MB3, MB4 and MB5 perhaps it could be called the Musketeer
