Query Answer: If Locke Johnson persists for more than four hours, consult a medical professional.
Did he just confirm his last name? If he did that's huge
It's pretty evident that it denied it completely.
Yes because misinformation has never happened before. I think they are wanting to keep his identity secret for now so his full name might not be known until they want to reveal his last name.
I'm pretty sure his last name is Locke. You generally don't call people with titles by their first name. (E.g. Admiral Hood not Admiral Terrence or Sergeant Johnson not Sergeant Avery).
That could be the case but it was Arbiter talking to him and not another human so . . . basically what I am trying to say is that Sangheili customs may be different in those regards.
Possible that 343 is only letting us know him as Agent Locke until it's time to be revealed that he is actually Locke Johnson...? Definitely an interesting and compelling theory. If Locke is Avery's son, and somehow was born with the immunity to the Flood, I doubt that would be given away so early by the Lore Masters of 343. :p

Or we could all be way off, and this is all just errant speculation.

I'm pretty sure Catalog was just making a penis joke, guys... no need to overthink it.
343 was very open about playing their cards this year. They laid everything out nice and neat, flat and open on the table. We got more than we bargained for this E3 and the huge early reveal shocked everybody.

Having interacted with similar constructs and handlers for nearly 2 years, from my experience it's safe to say that Catalog was making a joke as mentioned on the first page.

I'm pretty sure there's no such thing as "Locke Johnson". Maybe call a medical professional? ;)
Halo is already nearing Star Wars levels of everyone in a galaxy of an unfathomable number of people knowing each other and having close connections as if it's a small town of a few hundred.

Agent Locke being the son of Avery Johnson in a lot of fan theories seems like it hinges solely on the fallen Marine's race. I remember there were a number of fans following the release of Halo 4 who thought Johnson had returned because there was a black Marine aboard Infinity. He didn't speak any lines to suggest anything other than he was a Marine.

Back to my original point, Halo 4, Spartan Ops, and Escalation prove just how ingrained these connections are in this universe.

John-117 was chosen by Catherine Halsey as a Spartan and she in turn created Cortana, who chose John as her escort. Tom Lasky knows John-117 because he saved his life a quarter century prior and his friend Petra has long been obsessed with the Spartan. Then you have the Librarian who destined John to become a Spartan, Cortana to be his trusted companion, and Halsey to discover both of their potential. Terrence Hood served under James Cutter's command early in the war. Daniel Clayton, a New Colonial Alliance officer is the missing captain's son who personally knew Hood and benefitted unknowingly by his position.

Locke can become a Spartan on his own biological merit and certainly of his actions in combat without having been a Spartan 1.1. We don't need another one of these deep connections that branch everyone together.

They're buried deep within whatever remains of the replacement Alpha Halo's control room.
