Quick poll. When you hear something refered to as a Spartan. Do you think of:
1. Halo as the program in the game.
2. The Historical 300 Spartans. (Or the college same reference).
Which comes to your mind first?
300 Historical Spartans
always depends on the context, but with my friends it's always the halo ones

The 300 Spartans. The Halo Spartans are cool and all, but you just can't be cooler or more heroic than the original Spartans.
R.I.P. (all) Spartans

"But the real thing about Draenor is that it's a very kind of savage place, it's kind of like Australia where 11/10 things will kill you, giants and poisonous plants and everything. I think it's going to be really cool." Ray Cobo

The historical Spartans.
I think of Sparta, Greece.
"You're messing with my zen thing, man!"
Eh I think of more of a context of a spartan i a tough mother#@!#$. But I think of the country(nation?) of Sparta more then the halo game. Also you have missed the Sparta in the Greek mythology.

I can remember hearing from my nephew about the 2nd/3rd Generation Spartans in Halo Reach and asking my nephew: Spartans? Like the Greek Spartans? Oh that's a cool way to reference those Halo soldiers lol.
spartan = Ancient greece, hercules and 300.
well for me atleast.
I don't play Halo
i voted for halo even tho im a huge history buff.
it all depends on how the word is thrown into the conversation. if you just walked up to me and said the word spartan my responce would probably be "master chief, 300, or the college basketball team?"
The first thing that came to mind was my sister's school since their mascot is a Spartan.
Spartans from history, namely due to "This... is... SPARTA!!!" meme.
