Transformers relates to Shakespeare?

Postby LadyBug » Fri Oct 21, 2011 10:39 am

I was playing around a bit today on doing some research out of boredom. I discovered today, one reason how they ended up getting Lennox's name. I'm not sure if this was on purpose, but it makes alot of sense. Let's analyze the name a bit:

Lennox \l(en)-nox\ as a boy's name is pronounced LEN-iks. It is of Scottish and Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Lennox is "with many elm trees". Name of an influential aristocratic landowning family in Scotland in the 16th century. Lennox, a Scottish nobleman, appears in Shakespeare's "Macbeth".

I am presuming that they took William from Shakespeare his self.

William \wi(l)-liam\ as a boy's name is pronounced WIL-yum. It is of Old German origin, and the meaning of William is "will helmet, protection". For a long time after the Norman conquest in AD 1066, three out of four English boys were given some form of the conqueror's name, William. Short forms and variants came into being with a common basic meaning of "will", "determined", or "resolute". William has remained a royal name in the UK for nearly one thousand years. The firstborn son of the current Prince of Wales is named William. Wilhelm is a German form; actor Willem Dafoe has made the Dutch form familiar since the 1980s. See also Willard. Playwright William Shakespeare; actors William Hurt, Billy Crudup, Bill Pullman; film director Wim Wenders; poet William Blake; author William Faulkner; American Presidents William H. Harrison, William H. Taft, William McKinley; Bill Clinton.

Have you've discovered any other names in the Transformers movies/universe that they had done this too?
