    So I've been rewatching a lot of Thew's videos lately, and the intro to his HFTD Hailstorm review, while awesomely funny, brought up an amusing question:

    What are the most common name prefixes/suffixes in Transformers?

    So, since it's tricky to search TFWiki for something like this, I thought it would be fun for us to brainstorm all the Transformers names we can think of that use common name segments. segments like Blast, Charge, Sky, Storm, and Shot. Here's what I could come up with:
    As Thew mentions, the suffix "storm" is really common

    Storm
    Acid Storm
    Sunstorm
    Rotorstorm
    Duststorm
    Hailstorm
    Roadstorm
    Jetstorm
    Brainstorm
    Sandstorm
    Dragonstorm
    Megastorm
    Gigastorm
    Stormcloud
    Stormjet
    Stormsurge
    Stormbringer
    Stormreign
    Stormshot

    Sky
    Sky Lynx
    Sky Shadow
    Skyboom Shield
    Skywarp
    Skyblast
    Skydive
    Skyfire
    Skystalker
    Sky Byte
    Skyburst
    Skyquake
    Skyhammer

    Blast
    Shockblast
    Soundblaster
    Master Blaster
    Thunderblast
    Skyblast
    Electroblast
    Laserblast
    Fireblast
    Stormblast

    Blast-X
    Blast Off
    Blaster
    Blastcharge

    Shot
    Sixshot
    Great shot
    Dropshot
    Shothole
    Scattorshot
    Hot Shot
    Treadshot
    Stormshot

    Tron
    Megatron
    Galvatron
    Galvatronus
    Magmatron
    Gigatron
    Banzaitron
    Tigatron
    Minitron
    Computron
    Betatron
    Reflectron
    Evapotron
    Gravitron
    Lavatron

    Wave
    Soundwave
    Shockwave
    Laserwave
    Tidal wave
    Airwave
    Heatwave
    Blastwave
    Waverider
    Waveburst

    Star
    Starscream
    Star Sabre
    Star Upper
    Star Cloud
    Star Dust
    Star Convoy

    Please, add whatever you can think of. To keep this somewhat concise, perhaps we'll limit this to non third party names only. I think Placeholder names (like Shockblast) are valid, as are Japanese versions of names (like Roadstorm), but adding stuff like Stormbomb or Storm Emporer will probably make this list a bit too unwieldy.

    I haven't watched or bought anything RID. I was vaguely aware of there being some new white jet transformer people like, but I didn't know what his name was until now.

    Amusingly, they really don't mix the common parts very often. Where's Skyshot, Blaststorm, or Startron? LOL!

    I'm just pleased that the naming department didn't go too far down the lazy 'or' route.
    So thankfully we only have a few He-Man-esque names like Cheetor, Spittor and Tankor.

    Or at least that's true until you consider that all the Go-Bot names are part of the franchise now ;)
