    If you really want your kid to get his head flushed down the toilet at school, go for it!

    In all seriousness, it may sound like a good idea but your son will have that name for the rest of his life. Is he going to be happy with such a 'quirky' name later on down the line?

    No. Just don't do it.

    Give him the middle name Sam, or Spike, or Rad.

    Wait, not Rad.

    EDIT: Skullcruncher. Do it.

    yeah... I'd avoid it.

    maybe name him after a human character like Sam or hell if its a Middle name you might even get away with Spike

    Er, no... Prime does not make a good middle name.

    Why not Sam or Spike, like Locustreign suggested.

    It's your obsession, not his. Don't do that to him.

    Seriously, most TFs names are barely passable for pets. However when I really think about it, there are few names that could be alright. Magnus is a good strong name. But if his middle name is going to be Prime, then why not Rodimus? Call him Rod for short.

    if you're gonna give the kid a middle name from a TF, you shouldnt go with prime. go with something classy.
    Fangry, Carnivac, Bristleback, Birdbrain, Tentakill, or Repugnus.

    Don't inflict your passion on your son. Wait till he's older when you can live vicariously through him properly...

    Naming a kid after a TF is crazy. You should do something totally sane like pick a name out of a really really old book or completely at random or name him after a dead relative.

    On second thought, call him Grimlock.

    Screw bullies!!! I would kill to have been named something awesome like this as a kid.

    I say go for it. But personally i'd go with Ultra Magnus.

    Boring names are, well, boring. Don't be afraid to take chances.

    If he's a nerd he'll thank you one day. If he's a jock then you have my sympathy.

    ...

    Fuck Football.

    Leave the boy out of your obsession. If you must give him a TF related middle name then take the time to pick something respectable that he won't kick you in the jewels over in 12 years.

    Although I'm sure a football player wouldn't mind being called Ultra Magnus or Optimus Prime

    Sam or Galen are probably the least twatty ones you'll find. Of course, Japan did have names like Alan and Diego. Not too bad, I suppose. Then again, they also had Drillnuts and Leaf.
    ...
    But whatever you do, remember this:
    Whilst Windbreaker might well suit a baby, he'll kill you for it as soon as he's old enough.

    Hey, Nicolas Cage named his son "Kal-El".

    I'd go with "Fireguts Ginrai" myself.


    EDIT: If he ends up playing football, you will not regret naming the boy "Bonecrusher" or "Scrapper".

    Not Prime, take a more obscure name.
    Erector, Windbreaker, Grotesque somethin' like that.
    Or maybe Apeface?

    Do it! You know you want to make your kid hate you!
