Vega has been translated two ways in the Final Fantasy series. The single rifle is simply Vega, while the dual pistols type has been translated as Vega 42s.
ヴェガ in Japanese, regardless of the gun type.

Vega is the brightest star in the Lyra constellation, and is located 25.05 light years from Earth. 14,000 years ago it was the northern pole star, and will be again around the year 13727. The name comes from a loose transliteration of the Arabic word wāqi‘ ('falling' or 'landing'), which references the phrase an-nasr al-wāqi‘ ('the falling eagle'). In ancient Egypt, Vega was depicted as a vulture.
In Japan, the Tanabata festival is based around Vega and its myth, Vega being known as Orihime - a princess separated from his lover (Altair), and only allowed to meet him once a year. In medieval astrology, Vega was associated with chrysolite and winter savory.
