Apparently the Doctor is in the new New Frontier novel where a Doctor Who joke is made. Sci Fi isn't big enough for 2 "the doctor"s. I was actually disappointed that they never named him.

He will always just be Doc, or The Doctor to me. But if I had to come up with a name then I think he should stick with the name he chose for himself in the Distant Shores anthology story, Eighteen Minutes. He chose Aeson, and just like the Aeson of Greek mythology he named his 'son' Jason.


I always thought Aeson rather suited him.

I guess Hippocrates would be too much.

well don't forget WHY he took the name Joe...it wasn't random, it was his wife's relative's name


 


I always thought he should have taken Zimmerman...in fact in one of the early novels they refer to him as zimmerman

Early promotional stuff showed him taking that name too. It seams that was an idea they started with and quickly dropped for some reason. Maybe the producers felt naming him would make him seem less artificial.

>I thought he should take the name Zimmerman. He highly respected his designer and it pained Zimmerman that his favorite creation was quickly replaced. Zimmerman came to respect the doctor and in the books they developed an almost father-son relationship. With Zimmerman not married, without kids, and a recluse it makes side the doctor would take his name to establish a family connection and honor his creator.

In My Opinion, The Name stuck. Doc was always his name, and it would be hard to replace. If I were to pick a name though, His name should be Christopher, or Adam. Those names would fit him well.

The most logical name will be:


Shmullus Zimmerman
