    At SDCC they called her Flareup.

    In the latest set of QnA's she was referred to as Elita-1.

    Its up in the air at this point, just like the toy. And even if that ever sees the light of day I think a lot of people are gonna be disappointed.

    I think It might have just been a freudian slip. Elita might be the combined name.

    At this point I don't think they even know what to call her.

    Her name was never Flare-Up. The only name directed towards the bikes in the movie was Arcee.

    People say a lot of crap at SDCC... or any convention for that matter. What's important to them at that point in time is hyping up their product.

    Pimp- err... Hasbro Rep.: "Sure! Her name's uhh... *reaching into bag of names* Flare-Up!!!"
    Back in Rhode Island: "Sir, Valtrex has 'flare up' trademarked. We can't use it."
    Hasbro Rep.: "Oh. Well then..." *reaches back into bag*
