    Though wasn't his name Darchrow in the original Dota?
    It was, and it really felt like a fifh leg or a sixth wheel. Enigma is probably one of the heroes who were NEVER referred to by their names in any country. He is bloody Enigma.

    I know the origin, but he actively calls himself Carl in Dota 2. Garral is, currently, mentioned not once.

    i find it odd that garral was removed from the lore. it really wasn't a bad name.

    Magina the Anti-Mage is a horrible name. It has been the butt end joke of Mangina for long enough.

    However, it is more than likely they might keep it...
    Why? Because AM's voicework has a single word: "Terrorblade"
    His brother's name. No other hero's current voicework has that word.
    Probably only Soul Keeper would call AM by his name Magina.

    actually it's pretty likely that terrorblade and anti mage will call each other those things respectively. just like lina and crystal maiden.

    i can see anti-mage keeping his DotA title while ditching the name while terrorblade keeps his name and ditches the title (soul keeper sounds awful, has a weird connontation that insinuates something like shadow fiend's mechanics and nobody called him that anyway)

    I'm taking suggestions for a new Antimage name: Magina had to go.

    I think something that alludes to his monkish background would work nicely. Maybe some variation of a word from this list:

    Probably better to stay away from names ending in gina.
