"Check to see if this is intended or not"In the beta Warlock pets recieved new names, and Hunter pets had to be retamed due to a database wipe. They obviously had to do this on 4.0.1, but they were able to keep the pets. The Warlock pets getting renamed is probably left over from that. As such, this is not intended.

I doubt its intended as some of the demons kept their names and others did not. It's also completely random which demon kept their name. My imp for instance has his name intact but the rest of my demons all have new ones. Other people report none of their demons kept their name. Hopefully they can fix it, I want my felpuppy back. :(

@Aly.There's a finite number of demon names available to Warlocks. My guess is that all of your demons were randomly assigned new names but it just so happened that your Imp's randomly assigned new name was the same as its old name.

my girlfriend's Voidwalker Helmon (or Helmie as we called him lovingly), is now called something I can't even pronounce. Very disappointed and sad.. u really start to care for your demons and this really sucks.

I'm just amused at the wording. Given that this person is speaking for Blizzard and that Blizzard made this change, it's akin to saying, "I think I did something last night. I'm not sure if I did it on purpose. Let me go ask myself."Yeah, I'm weird like that. Still, very amusing.
