The game series known as MegaMan was originally known as Rockman inside Japan. The general reason for the naming, given by Capcom in an interview featured in the MegaMan Anniversary Collection bonuses, was "Rock and Roll", a rather common idiom, especially in the '80s due to the rise of rock 'n' roll music during that time. Rockman (sometimes shortened to Rock) is the main character of the series, who became known as MegaMan everywhere else. Roll was eventually a character that was also added to the series as a partner to MegaMan.
