A user explained on Reddit,

“At one time or another, we’ve all thought about the possibility that James Bond is the cover name for all agents given the 007 number. But that seems to collapse every time James’s backstory is brought up in a film. How can it be a name passed down to all agents if we keep hearing the same story about his parents, or how he was married once, or how he was in the Navy, and we hear those stories for every James Bond for the last 70 years?”

The user continued,

“Because the agents that become 007 have had their minds wiped, and they have all been programmed with the persona of James Bond, a made-up backstory formulated by MI6.”

Well, this fan theory indeed offers an intriguing perspective about the character of 007 and its unique stories.
