          From what I've noticed, if the hero's name doesn't show up in his/her bio, then his/her proper name is simply removed or he/she isn't given a proper name at all. Take Anti-mage for example, he was once Magina, but it was removed because nowhere in his bio does it state that his actual name is Magina.

          Nature's Prophet also wasn't named in his bio, yet originally his name was Tequioa. It's since been removed because of the same reasons.

          A partial example, but Crystal Maiden once had the name Rylai Crestfall, her surname has since been removed partially because there is no mention of Crestfall anywhere in her bio, and because her sister Lina doesn't have a surname.

          Likewise, Chaos Knight was Nessaj in DOTA 1, but since the name Nessaj isn't in his bio...

          EDIT: I liked Phoenix's name. Icarus was fitting for him and somehow complements his lore as a curious young star perfectly.

                  Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

                      What is the problem with Icarus? They probably removed it because Phoenix can't speak.
                      I don't think Blizzard can copyright it, just like they can't copyright Medusa or Zeus.

                      Valve's TO DO LIST (I see you guys keep forgetting so I made one for you):
                      - Viper remodel - Slardar remodel - Pit Lord
                      - Manila Compendium - New UI - 6.88 (a real patch this time)

                        Probably none, just that valve decided to not use it in his lore, like they did with other heroes that did not have any posibility of copyright issues.

                          Dota 1 lore is non canon (Rylai Crestfall, Lina Inverse) to Dota 2.

                            Nothing to do with the lore for the most part. We were talking about heroes who originally had names in DOTA 1 but had them removed in DOTA 2.

                            Kinda off-topic but I must know: where did you get your profile picture?
