Does it ever say Calcultron's real name?
Everyone refers to him as Calcultron but what everyone seems to be forgeting is that Calcultron is just a character in All My Curcuits. Has he ever been given a real name?

YES! CALCULON!
WITH NO T!

He's changed his name and appearance every few decades, "to avoid suspicion" (of being a werecar?)

He's been

As Oni said his name is Calculon, both on and off the screen.

It's not uncommon for actors, to have the same firstname in shows as in real life. Tim Allen's character was named Tim Taylor in "Home Improvement", Raymond Ramone's character on "Everybody Loves Raumond" is named Raymond Barone, etc.

Yeah, but they just never seem to mention it...except in that episode where Bender turns into that ware-car "The Honking" I think it's called (I have no idea about episode names).

Yeah, that was from "The Honking".  It's a pretty darn good episode, you really should see it.

Its Ray Romano + alot of movies and tv shows do that because it is easier on the actors. One of the most common mistake when saying lines is calling other actors by their real names not their characters name. By having the same first name it illiminates this.
