Seems like the names were just randomly regenerated with 4.0. Lucky warlocks got the same randomly generated name twice. Those nost so lucky... Short of a massive roll-back for warlock minions, I sadly don't think this is fixable :(

They had the same issue on the beta awhile back when they had to wipe all the pets, which sucked for hunters. Luckily this time around Hunters didn't lose their pets, I'd be mad if I lost good ol' Magmadar.

I read a theory somewhere else that it was actually a byproduct of there being a new spell to summon the pet, one sans-shard. So naturally, the pet's name gets randomly generated as though it was your first summon. This makes sense, and I have to think the GM who said it was intentional simply didn't know why and didn't want to say "It's a bug" without confirmation as such.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones, my faithful companion "Piptip" the imp is still casting endless fire bolts
