Default Emperor's name

does the emperor have a name( 99.9% probably) or is he simply called "the Emperor"?

Wikipedia says no

Well, yes he has a name, but no, we don't know what it is.

It's probably something stupid like 'Buttface' or 'Zekorusa'.

According to the Wiki entry, near the beginning of mankind's existence, there was a council of psycics who were whining that they were having a harder and harder time reincarnating themselves as something other than cockroaches and fleas so they decided to ritualistically commit suicide and all meet up later to spawn a master human.

This master human has supposedly gone through many "names" throughout the ages. He has the ability to stop his aging (so is immortal). There is no specific name mentioned for him: though the darkest and oldest tomes in the Imperial Library mention a "Darrell the Great" (okay...so I added that part).

But, in the long answer to your question, the Emperor has had many names and is nameless in the same.

I saw on the GW forums a whiel ago a topicsaying that he was The Stig from top gear, and they had an argument for it as well. I can't remember it but The Stig sounds much better than Bob IMO.

Why dont we call him Brian, after all the Emperor is our messiah and saviour.

(btw, i like that idea about him being The Stig)
