    "Miko" is the term used to describe a Japanese maiden dedicated to serving Shinto shrines. (Miko - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Was that name chosen for the human heroine coincidentally? Or could it hint at something special for her in the future?

    I doubt the writers thought about her name in much depth. I mean, they're writing so near enough everybody hates her, why would they want to introduce a special aspect to a character almost nobody cares about?

    They could have named her "Sakura", and still having nothing to do with flowers.

    They probably chose the name because it's rather simple and easy to remember for people who don't know Japanese.

    Remember that Animated had Sari named after a type of dress.

    As long as it gives the Transformers an excuse to go to Japan.

    Her last name was supposed to be Tezuka named after Osamu Tezuka the man who created Astro Boy.

    We we're robbed of a priestess of astro boy.

    We instead got a probable Cybertronian Sailor Senshi. Which CAN work well, considering Sari in ANIMATED...
