Robot Names

Go To

When robots, computers, and other machines appear in fiction, there are a few common ways for them to be named.

  • A phrase describing the machine's function is shortened to an acronym, or made the name itself.
  • A common word or name is made into a relevant backronym. If the acronym describes the function of the robot, then it's an A.I.-cronym, and should go there.
  • A string of numbers and letters, often containing at least one hyphen.
  • A similar string of numbers or letters which resembles a word or name, either as written, or when read aloud.
  • Slightly mutated terms related to math, machinery or electronics.
  • Robo-something
  • Something-tron or Something-bot
  • References to other pop culture, or actual human names.

See also A Mech by Any Other Name, Names Given to Computers and Name-Tron. Sub Tropes include A.I.-cronym.
