    "Chromedome" is a slang word meaning brainy.

    "Menasor" -> Menace-r. Is what he does. Menaces things. Menacingly.

    Ironhide -> "Ironhide's skin is made of a trithyllium-steel alloy impregnated with irradiated carbon fibers, giving him immunity to most forms of artillery and electromagnetic attacks." That's a direct quote from his tech spec.

    These three names are probably three of the most fitting names in G1.

    Hound doesn't make hounds. Ratchet doesn't make ratchets. Starscream doesn't make stars or screams. Inferno doesn't make infernos... well, at least in G1 he doesn't.

    Shockwave makes electromagnetic waves, and his actions can be pretty shockingly brutal, shockingly logical, and a shock to Cybertronian society.

    Bumblebee doesn't fit after they stopped making him a Volkswagen Bug. (As though that connection weren't tenuous enough.)

    Cybertron Thunderblast. Sounds like she should have incredible firepower, but is a boat. With a rocket launcher.

    Well design-wise, Movie BB has an insect-like battle bask and all post 2007 BBs are yellow with black stripes.

    Kup...

    Never understood why they named him that?

    Sludge... wtf?

    I always thought his name should have been Sledge... as in sledgehammer, seeing as though he's steel, strong and cracks the ground by stomping it.

    Kup i think is a Pass cause it's not a thing; 'cup'
    It's a name-name. So not as badass as HOTROD but i think Kup is ok.

    WOW Sledge would have been a great name.

    Kup, as in Pickup, because he was a Pickup truck.

    Sludge because in the 80's it was believed that the giant Saurapods spent all the time wallowing around in muddy lakes.

    Sledge would work better for an Ankylosaurus.
