Naming Your Transformers Character
Some notes on naming Transformers original characters (OCs):
There's something of an art to naming a Transformers character so it sounds like a creation of Hasbro, rather than that of an enthusiastic eight-year-old. (And yes, I realize there's a certain degree of overlap in such names...)
Anyway, there are a few naming traps which people fall into fairly regularly, so I thought I'd point them out in the interest of the characters who have to bear the names and the readers who have to read about them. Plus, of course, having characters with awesome names is in the interest of the author/artist, as well, so there's that.
Enough with the exposition; on with the naming!
Firstly, wherever possible, check if you've accidentally named your character the same as some other character in the Transformers franchise. Even if it's a really obscure one. This is not necessarily a showstopper - there have been different Transformers with the same name across the years - but people _will_ point it out
