Actually, they're named for what they do. Swift Knife is fast and uses wristblades, Long Spear uses his plasmacaster for a long range, and Stone Heart uses his hulking body size, strength, and resistance to beat up anyone... As if made of stone. Appropriate names in these cases. The soldier, the sniper, and the tank. Whether those are names given by Isabella Borgia or their true names can't be truly said. It would make sense for them to have names given to them, as the likeliness that their names would completely match them is low.
[glow=green,2,300]^ The naming of the Yautja on their appearance or there actions seems more fitting. There may be a chance that there name’s change if they become known for a particular action that they have done… just a thought[/glow]

If by that you mean what they call themselves, they do not. They are brainwashed, and do not talk to each other. Imagine them as a group of robots, being controlled by one person. Robots don't talk each other. They don't give themselves names, they are given designations by their owner. The Bad Bloods in Concrete Jungle have no minds, in a sense, because they only focus on their given goal. Never once do you see them even glance at each other. They know each other is there, and is an ally, but they only know that. They have their name and their goal, that is all that matters.

Dachan-da's point is a good one. I think that it's possible - maybe even likely - that a yautja's name might change during his lifetime. On earth, many aboriginal traditions have names relating to appearance or to actions, and it's not uncommon for a person to start out with one name as a child and to take a new name in adulthood. For example, the well-known Oglala warrior, Crazy Horse (Tasunka Witko) was given the name Among The Trees (Cha-O-Ha) at birth, and was also commonly known as Curly because of his light curly hair which he shared with his mother.

The people just give them these names because it is easier, and sounds better to name them by their actions then to create an entire language, and give invidual names. I mean, think about it, Swift Knife sounds badass. The speed demon, hell yeah. Why have bulky, uncontrolled, bullshit strength, when you can have baddass speed, skill, and technique.
All forms of art have their beauty. The art of the sword is, however, the most beautiful.
Yeah. Human names given to Predators sound easier, and are more representative of there abilities. Even though my characters name Khan is really representative of anything, I just think the name is cool.

In the books, and comics, they have names they call themselves.
I went to Amazon and looked at excerpts from two books AvP Hunters' planet: I found four names in two chapters... Ki'vik'non - name, blooded but low ranked male Nat'ka'pu -name of a Hunt Leader Lar'nix'va- a second in command or adjutant Dachande- Elder/ Hunt leader
But in those same books, and in the movie adaption novels... And in the comics. Humans give Predators names because we can barely pronounce their given names. Scar, Big Mama, Broken Tusk and the like.
