I know his name is Vision because of SFF.SE, but the nearest thing I remember in the Avengers : AoU 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?


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?" – user1027 Oct 3 '15 at 4:44
  • isn't vision a physical form of Jarvis? Wouldn't his name be Jarvis then? – krishna Sep 30 '16 at 13:25

    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. – KutuluMike Sep 30 '16 at 18:27
