Since space is a vacuum and Bang is a sound, how can this be considered a Big Bang since sound does not travel in a vacuum?

You are reading too much into a name that was coined by an opponent to ridicule the idea.  The name is only used to describe that the origin of the universe was a rapid expansion of space that could be thought of as being similar (but not identical) to an explosion.
Learn, create, test and tell

God says so!

Thanks for your response Soul Surfer, it is these type of questions that some may say their weird, but I appreciate the clarification. Thanks!
