Why is he named "Bumblebee"?
Are there bumblebees on Cybertron?


You can say the same about Jazz as well.

The most probable answer to that, is that it was a 1980's kid's show created for the sole purpose of advertising and promoting a line of toys; the details didn't really matter back in those days.

I've read several fan rationalizations in the past years, and this is by far the most popular; some surmise it was a designation aka codename given AFTER they landed on Earth, and their real Cybertronian names are unpronounceable by humans.
