Mr. Flannelly said:
It boils down to whether or not M counts as a name. There is a scene where M discusses the time with Electra King and the scene would pass the Bechdel test if one counts M as a name. There are other instances of 2 female characters talking to each other, but it regards James.

Zanagan disagreed with the rating and said:
M is most definitely is a named character. It's a code name, sure, but no one said the women have to be called by their full name. M is what she goes by and what people identify her as. M is one of the most prominent characters, it'd be unfair to call her "unnamed". Other characters go by code names as well, (Q comes to mind) and we wouldn't say they're unnamed.
