Here is the plot description for “Captain America: The First Avenger”:

“Captain America: The First Avenger” focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the super soldier known as Captain America.

As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, which is led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).

One of a continuing slate of films being produced by Marvel Studios based on the Marvel characters, “Captain America: The First Avenger” joins “Thor” (which was released on May 6, 2011) and “The Avengers” (which is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2012).

Captain America was created

Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby as a response to the booming popularity of patriotically-themed super heroes.

What's in a name?

Name: Joseph Greene

An intentionally patriotic creation who was often depicted fighting the Axis powers of World War II. He was the first super soldier in the U.S. Army… so Captain America just fits. It’s about as American as you can get.

Created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941.

The answer to the question asked!

My name is:Tony Jackson

Captain america got his name from being created by the army as the first experiment of soldier that, was suppose to posess super human prowless!

Writer joe simon who is the creator of capt.america said, he felt that captain america was more of a name acceptable because of so many other heroes that were named super! He felt captain would be much more appealing to the hard-core comic fan!

Captain America's Name

My name is James Mundo.

They called him Captain America because the US Government, after their planned super soldier army failed, wanted to use Rogers as a superhero rather than just a regular soldier. So they gave him the title of Captain America so he could be a superhero and a symbol of American values, freedom and hope, in the war and in future appearances. That way, everyone would know that he fought for America.

Super Soldier.

Uriel Ramirez

Because he was the first super soldier in the U.S. Army, and he was the Captain.

Captain America

It was given to him by the U.S. government to fight the Nazis and to become a symbol of freedom as well as a counter-intelligence agent.

sorry accidental entry. removing my comment.

Captain America

Name: Franco Arellano

Reason: The U.S Government gave Steve Rogers a costume based on the American Flag, an unbreakable shield and named him Captain America as the first super solider to fight the Nazi’s. His ancestor of Steven Rogers was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He was so patriotic and effective that his fellow soldiers nicknamed him “Captain America.” This was the first time the name was ever used, and it may have been the inspiration for the current title of Captain America.
