    Freakanomics had an interesting chapter on names. Apparantly, there is a guy out there named Shithead and another guy named Loser

    Megatron, wow, there are a lot of weird names that you can get screwed over with if your parents are crazy, but this gem, however, has to be the coolest one ever.

    Works with every ethnicity too:

    "And Megatron Jackson with a gorgeous alley-oop pass to Howard."

    "Well if it isn't Megatron Gomez smokin' a cigar?"

    "And we have news confirming that Megatron al-Sadr has been captured by coalition forces."

    "All hail the Great Leader, the eternal red sun, Kim Meg-a-tron!"

    I think it just sounds badass...

    Imagine a conversation like this:
    Bob: who's leading Goldman in the restructuring?
    John: you don't want to know...
    Bob: (gulp) not Megatron?!
    John: yup, they're flying Megatron and other top brass from Special Situations to handle this personally.
    Bob: $hit, we're f*cked!

    Maybe the kid can swing a one namer, like Madonna, he'll never need a last name... I'm sure he'll be a big hit all throughout Elementary and JHS... He'll grow up to be one cocky bastard...

    Anyone named Megatron is fucking hooked up for life. For real, that would be so badass to have that name.

    Unless the kid was a little pansy. Then it would be horrible.

    How can he ever turn out to be a pansy though? I'm sure in the park kids will tell him Megatron is a transformers character.

    He'll go home, watch the movie, see how badass Megatron is and be cocky from like the age of 4... kids will love him in his early years for his name, his ego will grow exponentially everytime he hears Megatron...

    He's bound to rule the world...

    Megatron Fund VI is currently fundraising for $100bn, hard target $200bn...
    Megtron leads Playtex in Leveraged Buyout ($hit, even this sounds intimidating...)

    Consortium of Private Equity players led by Megatron Strategic Investors are acquiring U.S. Treasuries in a classic distressed play for the United States of America. Supreme court is intimidated - rules Megatron is acting constitutionally.

    Boris: That is a very impressive accomplishment, Megatron, I'd give anything for you to make me a partner.

    Johansson: I agree, to close 27 deals by yourself last year? Amazing. But just one question, I've looked at your valuation process, and I'm a little confused, when do you actually do your modelling? I didn't see it anywhere in the memo...

    Megatron: Megatron doesn't go do modelling.

    Boris: Then what DOES Megatron do?

    Megatron (very seriously): Megatron goes to party.

    Johansson: Megatron goes to party?

    ::Room goes dark. Suddenly a strobe light comes down from the ceiling. There are red and blue lights everywhere, 70's disco music is blasting::

    ::Boris and Johansson stare up at Megatron in awe through the angelic blue light. Jaws dropped wide open::

    Boris: Holy fuck, he wasn't kidding!

    Since Megatron is know for ruthlessly dismantling his targets, the value of his US Treasury CDSs he structured himself a few years earlier balloons. When asked whether there were a precedent for such a successful trade, Megatron responded: "John Paulson is a joke."

    While Megatron usually laughs at people making finance jokes, he's grateful people were giving him ideas before he was even born.

    haha this is awesome!

    I love how all of you immediately relate Megatron to being a badass, and being a badass to be a banker. Most likely this kid will be a fucking loser just like his gay uncle.

    He'll be overweight and live in his mother's basement consumed with gay sci-fi shit like halo and quake and all that other gay shit skinny/fat pasty kids who dont get any tang are obsessed with. By the time he's 10-15 no one will even know WTF transformers is except us older folks... it will be as if one of us was named after the Thundercats or He-Man. How much of a bad ass would you feel like if your name was Alluro?

  • Ari_Gold's picture

    Why not Mumm-Ra? He's way more famous. I had to search who Alluro even was.

    We're just entertaining the thought , its the only thing we can relate to on a finance forum (which this obviously is)... Yea, I think we all realize the idea is absolutely idiotic and the kids family are most likely loosers but there is only so many "this bank vs. thank bank", "target school -->IBD--> PE..." posts that one can really scroll through...

    I didnt post this so we could shit on the idea of the name because, well lets be serious, thats what most people around here do, just shit on each other and provide little to no constructive criticism. Just wanted to get a laugh going, and see what cool shit you could do with a name like Megatron, in a world that's not full of dickheads that clearly mock everything. Case and Point...

    I disagree with Marcus. Megatron is a fucking badass name regardless of whether or not you even know about the cartoon / movies.

    Also, naming some kid Panthro would be awesome. Thundercats was the shit back in the day.

    Thundercats, hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    I agree a bajillion percrent. when I first saw this post I didn't even relate it to Transformers, it took a while to resonate. I was one of the few kids who hated that show, I barely watched it when I was young. I just felt like the name Megatron was badass straight up. Which it is.

    In fact, I feel like the fact that there is a precedent for this name in a previous character takes away from the sheer badassness of it. Because the Megatron I'm thinking of, the one that just made Bill Brasky's face fall off because he looked at him so hard, would fuck the Transformers Megatron up - specialty style.
