I can't decide on which name I prefer
so I am going to list some of my points and counter points for each name

Rockman
+I like calling things by their original name
+I like rock and roll, and having a character named after it is cool
-as far as I know he has no rock and roll theme other than his name
-I associate the word rock with the colors brown and gray not blue
-you have to explain to people new to the name what it means

Megaman
+rolls of my tongue better than rockman
+isn't associated with any theme other than being powerful
+I didn't connect the word mega to any color before the game
-not the original name

so yeah, as you can see I have more pros and less cons for megaman, but the original name thing really gets to me.

Unlike other name differences with popular characters, most people who enjoy Megaman know of his Japanese name as well. Even the kids.

I ain't here.
I like Rockman. I heard one time that the Japanese creater didn't like the name Megaman. I heard they didn't find it "cute" or something. That's funny.
Plus, if they left it Rockman, is character in Captain N wouldn't have been so MegaLame.

I like Megaman better. Rockman is also a good name, but Megaman seems better.

Rockman seems to hint that he just has rock like abilities while Megaman on the other hand dosen't limit Megaman on what he is capable of.

Atleast that's what I believe.

I think...

Rockman hints at Rocks
Megaman (when people are too lazy to add "NT Warrior") hints at "Super Fighting Robot, MEGAMAN"

i would choose rockman over megaman, but rockman is usually associated to the cute version less serious megaman and is always partnered with Rush (the dog), while megaman is the cool, savy serious type of the blue bomber and is partnered with Zero(the sword wielder). actually, Megaman has another name, he is always referred as X since megaman share the same name with Zero(as in Megaman X and Megaman Zero). this is just my opinion and partly based on the video game. for reference, check out the game Rockman 8 and Megaman Series (Megaman X, X2,X3...).

Yeah there's technically, 6 different megamen but one's called X, one has trigger in his name, one has .exe after his name, one's called model X, and one is when a human and a digital alien called War Rock combine. The classic megaman is just called megaman.

Considering the whole series is based on the usage of computers, and the fact that they even mention that the actual fighting heroes are programs should tell everyone that Megaman Nt Warrior's main character is Rockman.exe. Of course he knew that..... right?

Anyway, back to the topic.

I suppose of his two names, I perfer Rockman over Megaman. I mean, if you think about it, because he's Rockman, he and his sister's names actually work together. Mega and Roll just doesn't have as nice a ring to it as Rock and Roll. Besides that, Rockman is the name he was given first, and I think it should stay that way. (Then again, I don't perfer Jumpman over Mario, but that's a totally different story....:p)

While we are on the topic of Rockman.exe though, I find it very confusing that they had to change just about EVERYONE'S name on the dub of .EXE.....

MEGAMAN is the American name of ROCKMAN which is the Japanese name. They're one and the same.

So yeah, I prefer Rockman. I've gotten used to using it anyways.

Actually Mega Man is the American name. Note the space.

Rockman wins. Because it's better. Period.

As MugenSeiRyuu said, Rockman and Megaman is just a name change. They both refer to the same character.

To be specific though, Rockman is the name of the Blue Bomber's original form.

The character in Megaman X is simply known as X.

I did know that, but old habits are hard to break. And I've only ever seen the Anime, wish I could read the manga though...

I actually like Megaman same as I prefer Dr. Robotnik over Dr. Eggman and Boswer over King Koopa. It just makes more sense calling him Mega than Rock seeing that he is a super robot and not a robot with rock powers. It also rolls over the tongue more easily in my opinion.
