    Some of them would make good names for NEW characters...

    Musclor - A Circus Strong-Guy type with a hammer smashing action.

    Oceanor - Heroic Aquatican, or Mer-Man's birth name.

    The Fearless Fencing Master - A Great tag Line for a heroic Swards man.

    Maskor - Man-E-Human separated from Man-E-Monster and Man--E-Robot. I=Also, I think his Prototype/concept name from Power&honor catalog.

    Belios - Sounds like a great name for the "blow hard" concept character from the Power&honor catalog Better then Son Of He-Man96's Air Bag

    Demonia - Evil Lyn's Mother from Infinita!

    Dentos - The Weapon Breaker! A member of Fisto's celtic style tribe?

    Fakor - Seriously, the one time they don't use the Or naming convention? Retcon I would accept.

    The Monster - Nevermind...

    Etor - Makes me think of Ector, King Arthur's brother or Father (I always which Ector and Kay) Perhaps Laser Lot's name? Continue the "Arthurian name theme"?

    Tila - Teela's clone daughter? Retcon of Goddess/warrior to be Te-La & Tilia so Teela & Teela'na being primary versions, thus having ALL versions in various realities. Everybody's happy!

    Buzz - Buzz. He Hates it when you call him that. DO NOT call him "buzz buzz".

    Lezor - Politically incorrect named female Caligar

    Devastator - Sy Klone 200X repaint. A Renegade Gar. Add to Skeletor's much needed air support villains.

    Moussor - Moss Man Under litigation from Bactor Stockman variant.

    Bitete - Might Bite's birth name?

    Sansor - IDK. Sounds cool. A sand powered character?

    Puantor - and there is that Swordsman's name! A play on pun on puncture.

    Elephantor - Snout Spout, Hose Nose, Tuskador, Insizeor, and The Horde Mammoth man Tuskor I think is the Fannon name. Why not add an Elephantor to The Elephant Men!

    Extensor - What Theydon Takes when he can't Extendar when he needs to. If Your Extendar lasts 4 Hours or more, consult Man-At-Arms...

    Rafalor - Heroic counterpart to Gamblor (Create a character contest runner up who was disqualified...)

    Guerrior - The name of He-Man with a Helmet

    Turbor - Dragstor's heroic counterpart. (because why he was pared with Extendar is anyone's guess...)

    Roi Hiss - King Hiss's Son, or He-Ro/King Hiss Faker/Man-E-Faces type. A living Spell gone wrong Composite character.

    Roi Randor - King Randor Bonus head. He copied Kings

    Serpentor - Rattlor variant without a legal leg to stand on!

    Furilangue - A Fungus type character? There is a Great Fan Character called Fungor, perhaps this could be his real name.

    Repticor - Snake-Man-E-Faces. See Roi HIss & Roi Randor. Snakemen Robot replicating robot Man-E-faces finally has a counterpart! Sweet!

    Sstrictor - A sticky Minion (see Power & Honor foundation catalog. It's like a Sticky gumball machine hand or wacky wall crawler type toys about the size of Orko/Kowl.

    Pincor - One of Clawful's 200X cousins.

    The Enchantress - King Miro's Original Filmation enemy...

    Frak Attak - ...Seriously? Your messing with me now right?

    Spector - Scare Glow...Now I KNOW you are messing with me... :P (kidding! Spector would be a great character made of translucent color changing plastic so he could disappear. Who wouldn't want that

    Mousticor - Battle Mouse of Mysticor (totally fits the fairy tale princess theme if you think about it...)

    Well that was fun. Thanks for posting that list. I didn't know or had forgotten most of them!
    Once upon a time, good advice was "be kind Rewind"now nobody remembers the past.

          In Yugoslavia, names on the toy packagings remained unchanged, likely for financial reason. However, the cartoon dub (consisting out of mere 13 episodes) had some localized names:

          Trap-Jaw - Čeli??ni (Steel, but in sense that he's tough as steel/made of steel)

          Mer-Man - Vodenjak (named after an evil mythological Slavic spirit that dwells in water)

          Evil-Lyn - Zla-Lin (Basically same, just that ,,Evil" was naturally translated)

          Beast Man - Čovek zver (exact translation)

          Man-At-Arms - Čovek-oružje (Weapon-Man)

          Attack-Track - Amiga (I'm guessing the translator was a huge fan of it. :P )

          Dre-Elle - Darka (Apparently changed so it'd be more in line with Orko)

          Montork - Čarko (Same as above)

          Strongarm - Jakoruki (exact translation)

          Castle Grayskull - Dvorac Siva Lobanja (exact)

          Battlecat - Borbeni ma??ak (exact)

          Cringer - Straško (local equivalent)

          Clawful - Dingos (No idea what's up with this one)

          Ram-Man - Rama

          Sorceress - Čarobnica (exact)

          Triclops - Triklop (exact)

            Those are some pretty cool sounding names. I think my favorites on that list are... OCEANOR, DEMONIA, and THE ENCHANTRESS. From Spain, my faves would be... TROMPO, REPTICOR, CAPTOR, and DOBLOR.​
            I can usually be found hanging out somewhere between 1980-1989.
