I know that they are puns, but I only get some of the references.

Here is my guess on some of them:

Lobotomo = Lobotomy (a surgical procedure on the brain that among other things will reduce one's intelligence).

Botulis = Botulism. A disease caused by a toxin produced by a bacteria.

Botero = ?

Lechebot = ?

Saboteur = a person that sabotages an operation (usually a spy for another side).

Ghbost = Ghost (a spirit of a dead person)

Zombot = Zombie (an animated body of a dead person, sometimes associated with eating the living, especially their brains).

Botiful = Beautiful?

Bot-Dog = Bought dog perhaps?  I don't know.

Botox = A toxin used in plastic surgery.

Botanist = A person that studies plants.

Verboten = A german word meaning "forbidden".

Nice one. I'll help you a bit on that.

Botero was the name of a famous painter and sculptor. I suppose we could have named the bot Bot-Hero instead.

Lechebot is a French word. A l├Ęche-botte is someone who likes to say what people want to hear.

Bot-Dog sounds like Hot-Dog does not it?

Some of the names could be changed for the better I suppose. If you have a nice idea, please let us know!

Interesting...  leche = milk in Spanish and I always thought it was a play on words as  a baby drinks milk and thus it would be a "baby bot"

Leche = milk. Yes you are right.  :D

I like the baby bot idea.

Maybe we should keep this bot's name after all.

Huh and here I thought that leche-bot was a play on the expression "Milk Run"
