  Resolved Question: Good name for a robot
In my story, the hero and his crew (or group of companions, whatever you call them), have about 8 members overall, and one of them is a humanoid robot, kind of like clank from the ratchet and clank games, or cp30 from star wars, or k9 from doctor who. What would be a cool, catchy, cool sounding robot character name?
