Elisa: It's not like that. It's just that, well... uh... things need names.
Gargoyle Elder: Does the sky need a name? Does the river?

Shepard: So what should I call you?
Legion: Geth.
Shepard: No, I mean you. Specifically.
Legion: We are all geth.
Shepard: What is the individual in front of me called?
Legion: There is no individual. We are geth. There are currently 1,183 programs active within this platform.
EDI: "My name is Legion, for we are many."
Legion: Christian Bible, the Gospel of Mark, chapter five, verse nine. We acknowledge this as an appropriate metaphor.

Wrath: Tell me, you go by Scar. What's your real name?
Scar: I have none. I left it.
Wrath: Hm... you don't say. What a coincidence, I don't know my real name either. It's almost poetic, two nameless men fighting to the death.
