Sparkplug

Witwicky family patriarch

Witwicky is the surname for a family of humans who have been associated with the Autobots since the 80s.

Witwicky is a real name... but a vanishingly rare one. The U.S. Social Security Death Index records the passing of only two people with that name in the United States in the last 50 years.[1] However, the alternate spelling Witwicki is a relatively more common one, occurring 33 times in the Social Security Death Index.[2] It is possible that the name originates from the Poland/Ukraine area of Eastern Europe, specifically the village of Witwica, and that the name itself means 'the one from Witwica'.[3]

The motto of the Witwicky family is "No sacrifice, no victory," or in Latin, Absque sui detrimento non datur victoria[4]

History

Generations ago The Witwicky family moved from the Poland/Ukraine area to Norway, then to the Netherlands, and finally to the United States. Eventually they became involved with the Autobots.

  5. In The Last Stand, Sparkplug had a dream sequence where he identified his first name as William. Later, in Buster Witwicky and the Car Wash of Doom, while hypnotized, he identified his first name as Irving. As he was unlikely to be lying in either of those situations, the most likely answer is that his full name is either William Irving Witwicky or Irving William Witwicky.
