who comes up with the names?

by now most are aware of some oddly-named transforming toys. Just to review a couple,

Uranos (corrected from the original Uranus) - secret toys garden, and of course the wings of Uranos add on set,

- I appreciate uranus was the Greek god of the sky. Caelus is the Roman god of the sky, but no

Hardbone...really? As hard as bone?

Now "Chigurh"...maybe I'm pronouncing it wrong but that sure sounds a lot like "chigger" (see http://www.google.ca/search?q=chigge...88.tXYF09ogf0Y)

Now I get that he is a deception, and that sometimes bad guys get named after "bad" creatures, but chiggers?

Google "chigurh" and I get pictures of a guy who looks like Heath Ledger.

Maybe it's pronounced "chee-grrrr" although I'm not certain that's any better.

Well that's my rant, please feel free to add your own

I agree...some of those names are pretty goofy. Okay, so I googled "chigurh" out of curiousity. You think Javier Bardem looks like Heath Ledger?...LOL.
