He also has a sister named Beth. Gunn's father, James F. Gunn, is a partner and corporate attorney with the law firm Thompson Coburn in St. Louis. Gunn's surname is derived from the Irish name MacGilGunn, meaning "sons to the servants of the god of the dead". Therefore, Gunn means "God of the Dead".
