Default The Name of the Emperor?

He-On-Earth, God-Emperor, The Master of Mankind.

So many names are given to the Emperor after he was put on the Golden Throne, this leads me to wonder, does anyone actually know his true name?

I am asking for the fluff fanatics here, does anyone actually know the Emperor's true name, or is it, that over the thousands of years... his name was forgotten?

Long answer: I think Games workshop didn't wanted that he had a name, for example, do you think that a battlecry would sound ok like this?
"For Khan and Bob the ever master of manking"

Nah, it's just like out christian god himself, He's god, his son is named Jesus, Emperor's "son" is named Horus, so..... i see no reason why Games workshop would want to give him a name other than the "Religious title", it fits the whole generalized idea of a mesiah.

Short answer: Why bother?

Edit, Crazed mongooze, well, the bible i have at my house, the one that i follow and hear in my church, it never says that God's name is Jehova... or at least, I've never heard so.

That's really what I was thinking for my own "self-explaination" befored I posted. But still I thought it would be intresting if someone actually knew the Emperor's real name. Oh well, God- Emperor works well enough. ^_^

Crazedmongoose, you mind locking this?

For your information, in the bible, it is stated anywhere from 4 to around 600 times (depending on the version) that God's real name is Jehovah, or Yahweh as known in Hebrew.
