Several Transformers characters are named whatever they do. Such as: Jazz: He likes music. Ratchet: Named after a medic. Mirage: Can disappear. Laserbeak: Literally a bird. Hook: Self-explanatory. Some Transformers universe say the characters names are codenames. Notably Jazz in the movie and IDW continuities. As it would be possible for the Transformers to pick up these names after coming to earth. Like it's possible Bumblebee chose his name cause it sounded friendly or marketable. Or in case with the Bumblebee movie, he was given it as a nickname. Also some characters are given unfortunate names like "Windbreaker." Who doesn't even fart! False advertising! Or they sound like the character had an over inflated ego, like Ultra Magnus or Fortress Maximus. Some universes are more questionable. Again with Bumblebee. In the Aligned continuity, even on Cybertron he had the name. Which doesn't make sense cause it's a species native to earth. How do they get their names?
