Oddly enough, they changed James Hudson to Travis Hudson. Guess they didn't need two characters named "James" in the same movie.
It was definitely a little too poofy in Origins. I think it looked best in X1.
When I first saw the 'Brothers' trailer that revealed that Logan and Sabretooth were going to be related in the movie, I was very excited, because their past has been a mystery for all these years and I still don't buy the Jeph Loeb reasoning for why they must always fight, because of ancient animalistic mutants that they evolved from, or whatever. So making Victor take the place of Dog was fine for me, but like you said, the name Logan just came out of nowhere after that point.
I could buy it if his middle name was Logan, because sometimes people do just prefer to be called by a different name -my friend's mother always called her husband by his last name, so I guess it's just a matter of what each person likes to be referred to as, since I never heard of something like that before. It doesn't bother me too much that we get no explanation as to where that name came from, but it really could've been a five minute scene to fix all of that, at most.
