Combot robot name?
« on: February 08, 2017, 07:45:39 am »
I am currently building a 15lb combat robot.  I did everything my myself (designing/machining), but I am struggling to come up with a good name.  I compete in very competitive competitions, so I do not want something funny, rather more to intimidate.

When selecting a name you can check to see if it's already been used-

and

Ideally, you'll pick a name that's not been used. At a minimum, it's helpful to not pick a name that's already been used in the same weight class.

As far as picking a name, coming up with a general theme/direction and focusing on ideas in that range can help get to a good point.
