    Ok so I am an artist and I have been trying to think of some really good names for my TF characters but nothing is working too well so I thought why not search for a name generator online. That...has only brought more pain.......If anyone has any good TF name generators, let me know. Thanks!!! (Not that CN one because that link is old and doesnt work)

    In War for Cybertron and Dark of the Moon when you unlock multiple slots for the classes I use them to create custom characters. Coming up with names for them has been quite a challenge and some I'm not satisfied with. So what would you name some of the following?

    A Decepticon rogue. Stealthy & speedy prefers to hit hard and fast, then run away.
    An Autobot Aeiralbot medic putting others ahead of his own safety.


    A generic name generator would be handy but I doubt anything other than that old one exists.

    Generally, names based around driving & car parts have historically worked for the Autobots, or plays on the kinds of cars that they are meant to turn into.

    If you can get into the heads of the original writers when they came up with the names - and there's plenty of Budiansky interviews where he talks through it - you can get into the zone for names. It's usually an interesting read, and it makes you start thinking about how the names and the characters fit together.


    Looking at TwilightNero's post, looks like he's also able to figure that side of things out. Those names are great fits for the personalities outlined.

    It would be good if we had some description of the characters. Mainly their abilities and what they turn in to. Colors would also be good, but at the same time, we have Bluestreak, who is not really blue...

    I created a charecter called Blindfire as Blindfire is a sniper and she has a damage optic lense and but despite being half blind is a gift sniper.

    She's got a hard as nails personality like Prime Arcee and wouldn't hesistate to kill any Decepticons as one of them shot her optics out like Depthcharge but is really insecure with her diablility.


    As for the bot who shot her optics, He's a a missile carrier like HFTD Hailstorm, big burly, has many targetting procedures but is dull and can be easily outtwitted by any smart resoucreful fighter. Think BW Scorpnok intelligence with Movie Brawl weapons system. He's also very arrogant and can when he pounds his fist canons he can send shockwaves.

    Got a good name? Please i don't want to call him Tankorr, Hailstorm or Brawl?

    Funny, the blind sniper sounds a lot like one of Alphie's fan characters.
