Well, by the way Steven Moffat has been going with the new series, he's been hinting to the audience that some people do call him by his "real" name, and that he'll probably reveal The Doctor's name.... or probably not.
But if he does reveal it, it'll probably ruin everything the series has built up, and the show wouldn't be called "Doctor Who" anymore, because we actually don't have to ask that question anymore.
So, what do you think ? Should he, or shouldn't he ?
Mate it's not his name accept it. If they were to reveal his name it'd be with greater emphasis than bloke popping up through a wall.
Maybe no one has debunked it because everyone knows that's not his name. The absence of someone disproving it does not make it true.
You forget the era. At the time this was done, DW was just gaining steam i America, it was a hit in England...but the BBC was a bit of a nightmare with shows.
Why would they make a big deal about it then? Fandom was really in it's early stages at this point, so the 'big reveal' might not have mattered so much to the writters. Also, the Key to Time was a major Tom Baker storyline.
The thing is...yeah, it's likely not going to be his name, intended or otherwise. Actaully, I could care less IF they reveal his name. In a way Lab Rat had it right. His name is The Doctor, regardless of what his birth or family name is.
It is one of those lovely mysteries that never needs solving.
As previously stated by others, nothing could live up to the hype of being the Doctor's name. I think it is best left to the description given in 'Fires of Pompeii' where Evelina tells the Doctor "It burns in the stars of the cascade of Medusa herself".
