I know his name is Vision because of SFF.SE, but the nearest thing I remember in Avengers: Age of Ultron is someone (Stark?) mentioning something about a vision, but not as the new android's name.

Was he ever called by his name, Vision, or was he "formally" named, or is it an assumed thing?

  • There’s literally a TV series named WandaVision in MCU.

Yes, he is referred to as "The Vision" several times in the movie.

Initially, you're correct that the word wasn't used as a name, it was used to describe Stark's "vision" of a new AI. Ultron also later refers to the android as "my Vision."

However, the Avengers do use the word in such a way that it's clear they've decided that his name is "The Vision". For example, Tony refers to him by name during the climactic battle:

Stark: FRIDAY! The Vision?

FRIDAY: Boss, it's working. He's burning Ultron out of the 'net, he won't escape through there.

Also, in the final scene, Thor decides to leave

The Mind Stone

with the android:

Thor: If he can wield the hammer, he can keep [spoiler]. It's safe with the Vision. And these days, safe is in short supply.

  • Also, during his birth scene, Steve asks, "why does your 'Vision' sound like Jarvis?"

    No, he's not really a physical form of Jarvis... Jarvis forms the core of his "intelligence" but he's also many other parts mixed in. If anything, he's a manifestation of the Mind Gem using Jarvis as a foundation.
