Maybe a cool idea, if he is still nameless, asking the community for ideas and shortly before the release make a poll. Hey Devs, wouldn't you like to make it official. ;-)

Here is mine: Wilson (you've seen Cast Away? 8-) )

In honour of a tirelessly-working community modder, and someone who earns my regular curses (in a good way), mine is definitely called "Bob"

Well, the technician is you isn't it? So typically it would be called your gamer tag.

To me he kinda seems like a Fred. I'm not opposed to Bob though, in recognition of Bob, also Bob the Builder, and Bob's my uncle lol.

It's always been my impression that the game deliberately sets up a featureless protagonist, an ambiguous person in a suit that's strongly implied to be you personally. Put another way, there isn't actually a player character; the outfit in the center of the screen contains the player him/herself.

Or... Or.... Or it's empty.

Perhaps we are the suit.

Based on the speed at which he works, having memorized blueprints for a significant variety of equipment, and being a space traveller to have the misfortune of becoming stranded somewhere yet not accepting this defeat and seeking a way to change the rules, I propose the following name:

James Doohan.

aka

Scotty.
In my mind, Steam is the eternal king of the railway.

The Factorian seems about right until the Devs come up with a more elaborate background story.

Of course it's Anna, because it's 2016. Or something.
