    If we go by the naming schemes used in Autoboot Camp.


    Example:

    You're an optimist... I shall name you Optimus.

    Actually Optimus's name comes from the word optimal, meaning best.

    I know Elita's name comes from the word elite, also meaning best. If you think about it both Optimus Prime and Elita-1's names have the same meaning: The First and Best.

    There are the easy ones: Bumblebee, Iron Hide, Longarm, etc
    Then the ones that dont make sense to me: Rodimus, WheelJack, Arrce, etc
    Wish they could elaborate a lil on the hard ones some

    Rodimus may have gotten his name from his reputation among the fembots. :p

    Truely an interesting way to get a name, but highly unlikely. But quite funny to think about:thumb

    Wheel Jack
    Is a too used to jack up a car... hence a Wheel Jack
    Wheel Jack is a autobot that fixes and makes machine... so it does fit

    While we're on the subject, do you think the Decepticons have a similar naming scheme?

    Are we including G1 versions of Decepticons? If so, Starscream's name is pretty obvious if you think about his voice.

    I'd rather find out what they were called BEFORE they went to bootcamp.
    I mean they were just randomly renamed because of something they could do.

    Its not like before that they just responded to 'hey you'

    Probably some indecipherable Cybertronian names that have no human equivalent.
