Nope, they don't even have a name
Name only, nothing fancy
Has a title worthy of my lord/hero
I wish my lord/hero would do something so i can give him a special title....

I have a GOU named luis armstrong, ad modeled to look like him as well. I always do one of his tune when he is in CC, to crack everybody up.
Ah, nah, thanks but it's got to be recognisable, and it's got to work in French too. Not that easy Never found better than the plain Phileas Gob >>
I stopped naming them... its just to painful when there killed
My Warriors of Chaos are the Varangian Guard led by the Chaos Lord Basil.
Some may recognise this as a historical reference. The main reason for picking it is because of the actual history to it: the Varangian Guard were the elite personal bodyguard of Emperor Basil II of Byzantine and consisted almost entirely of Norsemen sent from Kiev and bolstered over the years by any Norsemen seeking glory in battle. Rather a fitting for Chaos, I think.
The second reason is that I listen to a lot of Viking metal while playing my games as it fits amazingly
(also a name as casual as "Basil" is awesome on a Chaos Lord!)

That awkward moment when your hero's mount, a cold one, plays an epic part in wiping out enemy Greatswords including BSB/General/wizard.
My Goblin Warboss is called Ol Jolly - cuz he's never smiled or joked since he fell out of a tree a few years back while trying to escape some Tomb Kings out on the hunt for 4 chariots his clan had looted from the Dead Lands.
He's also, as a result of falling out the tree and banging his head, developed a Gork complex and thinks he's meaner and better than Orcs! This leads to some bad things for me in the game as I can't back down from a challenge as he'd never live it down!
Quite often he'll also issue a challenge or lead his unit into charges against the enemy elite units to 'teach them a lesson' - strange as it sounds though both him and his unit have performed some true miracles!
Today, for e.g. they were charged by a horde formation of Iron Guts, 3 deep, with 2 characters - and beat them senseless! OK so I had the Spider banner and a buff to poison from magic - but I beat the Ogres by 29 points!!!!
I have gone another route, with 8th edition I added a timeline tidbit with each battle I fought, creating quite a long timeline, it therefore fits poorly to have characters with permanent names, instead I try to think up some before the battle as well as a reason for them to fight. After this I add it with a few rows to my timeline.

Comments/Criticisms/Thoughts welcome indeed!
Death Korps, High Elves, random Dark Eldar, more to come (eventually)! Now includes Dark Angels!
It is of course counter-revolutionary to accuse Our Dear Leader, Glorious Comrade Chairman Heinrich von Stahl, Comrade-General of the Red Guards, Light of the Proletariat, Order of Revolutionary Merit (1st Class) of having anything so aristocratic as a title.
Now just doing Battle Reports.

sorta sounds like grievous (a good orcy/gobbo shoutout), but a bit more classy when pronounced more like Phileas.
Give your model a classy top hat (perhaps using it as a wysiwyg wizard hat) and some side whiskers modeled on, or better yet a flying carpet modeled as a balloon in some way, and if people know around the world in 80days they will get the name.

I always name my characters, as I am a role-playing game with a huge imagination, and I really care about personalizing characters. It gives a little of me unto the game
Supreme Warmonger of the Upper Lairs, Warlord General Viskrit Foe-Slasher,Sire of a Thousand Stormvermin and Right Paw of His Terrible Mercilessness, Kratch Doomclaw of Clan Rictus. I know, he's a very subtle and humble servant of the Lords of Decay.
Sure, he's achieved very little as I don't really get any games, but when have a lack of actual achievements ever kept a Skaven from self-agrandishment...
My Brets have William Bohun, Earl of Northampton (real English lord who commanded the English right flank at Crecy).
The Orcs and Gobbos have CaveBoss 'Eadsmasha.
The High Elves have Prince Aenor Escalon.
my high elves are led by a prince, titled Lord General Tallaithan. (Back when ravening Hordes was the only 'army book' and few army titles were available) He is mostly unkillable, has finished off a bloodthirster by passing insane courage TWICE and single-handedly slew a unit of five man-eaters. (with a little help from his trusty steed, Darius, of course)
the rest of my characters are all named, but really no one else has a title.
my skaven have their Warlord McBain, and I have some great back stories for my grey seers, Lucky Biskit and Skrittick the Mad (he is the only seer crazy enough to ride my converted double-screaming bell.) no special titles for anybody though. yet....
