    "Galvatron" is the name humans gave to the body that Megatron secretly took over. So why the hell the ol mighty leader of Decpticons simply replace the name he has been using for hundreds of years with a term humans gave?

    As in if humans gave a secret code name like "PoopyPants" instead, will Megatron declare himself with that name too?

    new body.. no spark.. fresh start.. why not?

    same reason G1 galvatron didn't change his name.

    it's not like it's a bad name.

    Why are you asking these questions? Do you really think there was any thought or reason behind this decision?

    He likes the name Galvatron.

    The real question is why did the humans give a name that's only one syllable different from 'Megatron' to a robot that was supposed to be based on Optimus Prime?

    Stupid Earth creatures.

    :D

    He ain't Megatron. Galvatron is a copy of Megatron KSI was forced to make when Megatron's programming got into their computers

    Yeah, this.

    Where (and why) the hell did THEY come up with a Cybertronian name like that? Are they paying homage to a race they're trying to eradicate/replace?

    maybe it is a reference to the megatron-like aspect of the final render?

    even before galavatron was named in the movie, tehy were still buiding him...
    and they had time to notice that he looked like megatron

    if he looks like megatron, do you think they are going to give him the name "something prime"? or any other name that they would give to a prime-like robot?

    no, they would invent a name that sounded like megatron's...

    I always assumed the name meant Galvanized Megatron. I would think he at least approved of the name if not, as mentioned above, suggest it himself.

    Or perhaps it was mocking the humans. "Foolish insects! Galvatron is your creation and shall be your destruction! I am Galvatron!"

    if your problem is how they know cybertronian...

    they used lots of transformer heads to discover how cybertronians work... they also had plenty of time to learn cybertronain from those heads...

    Because its not Megatrons body, he guided it's development. Maybe megatron came up with the new name since it was a new body placed it in the human computers, the humans saw it thought it sounded cool not knowing who came up with it and went with it. Besides Megatron never had a problem calling himself galvatron in G1 or anyother time it might have called for it after he was rebuilt.
