The Official 'Guess the Doctor's Name' Thread

Will it be something historic to the show, like William? Or Sidney?

Will it be something a completely alien name we've never heard before? Like... er...

Will it be an in-joke, like John Smith?

Will it be self-indulgent, like Steven?

Anyone wanna take a guess?

Or Fred.

In fact, if it's anything, it has to be Fred.

Re: The Official 'Guess the Doctor's Name' Thread

From Clara's reaction in "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS," it seems like it must be a name that's recognizable and meaningful to a present-day human. Which seems to limit the possibilities.

Actually Merlin seems like a good guess -- it was suggested in the original series' "Battlefield" that a future incarnation of the Doctor would be Merlin, at least in an alternate universe. Although if they went that route, some fans would inevitably accuse them of ripping off the Colin Morgan Merlin series, because some fans reflexively see any similarity as theft even when it's totally ridiculous to do so.

It begs the question, though, why would he be running from that name?
