I don't know when or where this was shown to be Black Bolt's real name, but its always bugs me when they do this sort thing.  I've seen it happen with other characters who lacked a "real name" when created.

Thank god Johnny Storm had a name or he might have been Herman Storch.

Good grief.  What did M***** do, give real names to all of the Inhumans now???

I guess Triton's real name must be Herbert Tritonski, Jr.

They made it up because he can't disagree with anyone. His real name's Philip Flenderson, but anytime he tries to correct people, well...

"Hey, Blackagar!"

"MY NAME'S NOT..." <stops> <looks around at barren wasteland> <rolls eyes>

Dumbest thing I've heard in a long time.  I really wish I didn't know this.  The good thing is I can happily ignore it as I do everything else Marvel and DC do these days.*

*These days now officially means about the last full decade.  Sigh....

Marvel is just publishing fan fiction at this point.

I hate to break it to you guys, but I remember this name from the '70's or early '80's. I've been trying to find the first time the name was used, unsuccessfully. But I assure you its been around more than two decades, or thereabouts.

Not that that mitigates any guilt. Just sayin'.

Now I'm very curious where this name originated!

The Mark of Gruenwald, alas. I plotted an FF Annual I didn't have time to
script. I gave Mark all the notes he needed, and he wrote a script -- my
notes plus a little bit more. Like Black Bolt's real name.

Mark really should have been at DC.

I thought it originated with Lee and Kirby, or at least one of them? Heck, it sounds like a Kirby-esque enough name!

Still - even if it's not, you wouldn't be around to hear him correct you.

I wonder why that never happened. I loved the JLA issue of Amazing World of DC that he did. I suspect he would've been great there.
