    ...Usually of the characters themselves. Sometimes codenames, depending on the name.

    Erector: the male reproductive organ getting an erection
    Rattrap: the trapping of rats
    Starscream: that one night when my friends got drunk and screaming at the night sky (filled with stars)
    Blackout: no electricity

    Am I playing this correctly?

    Why's that?


    Generally the names remind me of the things they're supposed to evoke, which usually ties back to the characterization in some way or another.

    Reminds me of the way some native American tribes used to bestow names.

    Bob Budiansky named Ratchet after Nurse Ratched from the film One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

    I don't mean to be rude but some of these posts are funny.

    Anyway Cliffjumper makes me think he's one of those people who like to cliff dive. Noble makes me think of a good guard dog. THe name Prime makes me think of Prime rib. Thundercracker to some makes them think of farting.

    Movie Ratchet gives off more of a Wilford Brimley vibe to me. But that's not his name reminding you of something, now is it?

    Actually, movie ratchet's head kind of reminds me of a kakapo.

    I guess the "latin and greek" based names remind me of antiquity and classicism, because I can usually pick them out and they're usually pretty different from the other "VERBNOUNER" names.
