Default Mod question

I asked this in my mod release thread, but as no-one seems to have read it I'll ask again here. I have moddded Caelum to the new nation and I have managed to maintain the two Caelum heroes, transforming them into the heroes appropriate for the mod. How do I have their names show correctly as singular? Ie hero 1 is "Mira the reckless" - when she appears you get "<other name> mira the reckless". In other words, how do you have the monster name not have a random name tag inserted at the beginning?

Heroes have a set name that can't be changed IIRC. Codewise heroes are not generated as other units and are given a specific name instead of a random one. Therefore their names can't be changed by a mod. This might have changed but I don't think so. Meanwhile you'll have to rename the hero in the game. Not very aesthetic solution, but it's the best you get right now.

Actually you can use the #nametype command to give heroes a random name in the latest Version of Dominions II.
