    That's because they name themselves to describe themselves. It's happened in past continuities too. >.>

    It was just funny how they made a point to explain their names in the first 5 seconds.

    this. :lol 

    oh, and Spittor spits, and Strika.. hmm strikes ;)  Red Alert is logical as she's battlefield medic and surgeon.

    wonder how they'd explain Prowl's name, but there's always be reasonable backstory i guess ;)  oh! and i'd love to hear why Cliffjumper is Cliffjumper ;)

    Yeah, all the names make sense, sometime they even help describe their physical appearence. That's one of the things I like about both the movie and Animated.

    no, Spittor obviously 'spits', like what he did with Red Alert. i think it's not that hard to figure out, cause english isn't my main speaking language and it was like.. easy to guess.

    Its all explained in his bio 'Because of his temper, Cliffjumper has never been much of a spy. Even though he works in Intelligence, he doesn't interact much with the enemy. Instead, he collects information from field agents and finds the important bits for his superiors. Of course, knowing everything there is to know about the Decepticons makes him a little tense, which is why he's always ready for a fight.' the poor guy is so stressed he is suicidal and tries to off himself by jumping of cliffs :p
