I was reading some Marvel comics, and in issue 2 Bumblebee states "I am code named Bumblebee...". For clarification, dictionary.com describes code name as code name n. A name assigned to conceal the identity or existence of something or someone. This implies that Cybertrons all have real names, but during the war they all adopted code names. What would the real names be? Serial numbers? Programming code? Does this impact for anyone the way Hasbro uses the names on multiple toys in the same line? Does it help in tying every series together into one timeline?
