why do guardians have no names?

Why don't our guardians have names? Is it out of respect because you've been dead a looong time, or because you just don't remember after that time? I imagine an NPC saying "good luck out there, guardian" and all 15 heads turn around in the tower and say "thanks" at the same time lol Edit: I understand, realistically, our names are our gamer tags, but I wouldn't consider an STD or pathological medical condition a name lol especially not in game (disease has been eradicated, I assume)

        • My guardians name is Lord Jallace. He's an earthborn orphan that escaped a life of crime and petty thugs by enlisting in the guardians. He's a war hero he proved himself by single handedly holding off fallen forces until help arrived.

          • So you never played a nameless hero before? Real legends and heroes don't shout their names out.

                It'd be cool if we could name them. :l However this is where role-playing comes in... "Oh...hey there A Drunk3n Duck!" "My name is not "A Drunk3n Duck" as you say...I am a half vampire half werewolf named Xavier Moonbottom..." "Rrrriiight...um so you wanna join our fireteam?" "Ronald Moonbottom accepts your proposal...shall we commence with the merry making?" "Erm..sur-" *Proceeds to pull down his pants and moon them* "AW GAWD WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" "It is a custom passed down through the Moonbottom family. Anytime we partake in merrymaking we must lower our trousers and show the other merry maker's our bottoms." "Ok...well we're going to Old Russia to do a strike. You ready?" "I am preparing my posterior..." "Your wha-AWWW COME ON!"

                • Yeah, i don't think hearing them say: Good luck out there xX420BlazeitboyyX420xx, is a good name for a guardian, maybe that's why they picked it.

                  • In military bootcamp they call everyone "recruits" to instill a sense of team group and get you to stop thinking as an individual. This might be the case.

                        • Guardians died left and right during the war. No reason to be attached or feel for them. I think. So they just say guardian.
