The name Jom Gabbar comes from "Gom Jabbar", a fictional device appearing in Frank Herbert's Dune universe. According to the Dune novel, the Gom Jabbar is "The high-handed enemy; that specific poison needle tipped with meta-cyanide used by Bene Gesserit Proctors in the death-alternative test of human awareness". Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam used one to test Paul Atreides just prior to his departure to Arrakis.
The Gom Jabbar is used to kill people who fail the "humanity test". The actual test is carried out with a box that produces pain by nerve induction, causing severe, but strictly mental, pain. Only a human was considered to be able to withstand the urge to take the hand out of the box. Any person who did was stung with the Gom Jabbar, causing instant death.
