  • Phoenix's name

    Since "Icarus" has been pulled away, I suggest the name "Ankaa" for Phoenix. Ankaa is the brightest star of a constellation of the same name as the Hero. Also, Ankaa means "the phoenix" in Arabic. And seeing how Phoenix is a sentient star, this can fit in well. I'm not sure if Icarus Dive should/will be replaced with Ankaa Dive, though.

              Phoenix is totes his name, because he's just living sun, not an actual species with an actual species name. Now please stop bringing this crap up.

                    Why didn't they change Icarus dive to Phoenix dive if he is not Icarus anymore?

                      Stop doing that. Not every hero needs a name. He's a sentient star, do you really think he cares how mortals would call him? Same goes for heroes like Enigma and Chaos Knight.
                      Possible solution to foreigners issue
                      In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

                        Because he dives like Icarus from the Mythology? Why would his own skills wear his own name? Like he invented them or something... Please also Icarus Sun Ray and Icarus Supernova...

                          Well the Guardian Wisp has been called "Io", yet it's the "embodiment of the mystery of the universe", and what it is actually is still quite unknown, yet it has a given name. Same with Phoenix's great great great great great great granddaddy Ezalor.

                            Wisp's name is most likely given by scholars who mistook it for "the twinking of a divine eye", while Ezalor and the old man's form overall are just a cover.

                            We are talking about a star turned sentient that came to the world of Dota 2 to learn. Phoenix not having a name at this point makes perfect sense.
                            Remember, remember the 1st of November
