Allow Warlocks to change demon name

I want to see warlocks be allowed to rename demons without having to keep random generating it. In light of the talent changes in 5.0.4, if you take the Fel Imp option then you loose your demon's name to a new one.

I had Adapap as my Imp's name since release (Nov 2004) and became attached to it. I took the fel imp and still had Adapap until I zoned into a dungeon then suddenly he's gone and Fiz'tok was in his place. I want the ability to change his name without randomizing through a giant list back to his original name.

After talking to a GM this morning, there is no function they have nor anything in game like the hunter's have for changing the pet names. As of right now, hunters merely have to visit a friendly scribe to obtain a Certificate of Ownership to change the name. Warlocks can visit their trainer but must randomize the name. I fully understand the desire to keep demonized names so a compromise could be to allow picking from the list used to randomize the names.

Picking from a list of demon names =/= naming it Mr.Cuddles.

Picking from a list = not spending 50g over & over to get a random name you probably won't like.

Although I could get behind it. Sometimes the minions have awful names and picking another one (not renaming it Mr. Cuddles or Hugo) would be a decent idea.

but I don't get to name my poor shadowfiend. :(

Mine's is Boo. :P

Anyways, I support being able to pick from a pre-determined list, although there's something amusing about someone with a Voidwalker named Mr Hugs or something.

A better option would be the inclusion of a minor glyph that would return the skins and names of the old minions while keeping the power of Supremacy.

Seems similar to the druid tree glyph.

EDIT: Personally I prefer the look of the Felguard, Succubus, and regular Imp. Wrathguard and Shivarra are cool, but dont have that classic feel.

Hear, hear. Plus the Felguard is such a ridiculous meathead he NEEDS a silly name to undercut those muscles. (I hate running around with him.) Like Mr. Bear Who Cares. Or Baby Beluga.

I thought you would like to know that your supremacy demons are actually altogether different "people" if you unlearn the talent all your demons go back to the way the where name and all.
