Transformers Ironhide signification

Hi guys !

My English is kinda bad and one of my sons asked me the
signification of " Ironhide " ( a Transformers character )
My Harraps doesn't help me, so ...
I know you won't be able to give me the terms in French,
but : can you explain me the concept (if any) ?
a clue so I can translate ?

thanx !

"According to the original creator of the Transformers names, Bob Budiansky, Ironhide was named after the television series Ironside."

I think what you're looking for is this (forgive my awful French attempt):

Ironhide = peau de fer

Iron is a very strong metal, and in English an animal's "hide" is it's skin. To say that something has an iron hide is to say that it has very thick, tough skin.
