Okay this has gone on long enough. Im casting my vote for it being the official name of Blizzard All-Stars.
Blizzard all stars is the official name.

In general they'll discuss things leaked by someone else, but they aren't going to post any inside information they may have access too. I know WoW Insider at least got a lot of MoP information two weeks before the expansion was announced, but they didn't even let on that they had the information.
Overall though, "Heroes of the Storm" doesn't feel like an expansion name to me, but ultimately I think I'll file it along with "The Dark Below" in the "I have no idea" category.
Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.
Made an account to shoot off my speculation.
The front page of MMO-Champion states: "Keep in mind that this trademark isn't confirmed just yet. It isn't likely to be used for a WoW expansion, as the trademark application mentions the software being used on "mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs"."
Given its inclusion of mobile and cellular phones, tablets, etc. This makes me believe its some sort of mini-app or programs to do with the Son of the Storms. I haven't speculated exactly what yet, but perhaps a small fun project to do with their art team or art in general. Matches the names and the theme. While most of the time users in the community are considered Children of the Storm, Heroes is a new possibility seeing that a majority of the fan base of SotS play WoW and are the heroes of Warcraft.
I'm still going to have to think about it some more.
Could just be an online App for their art gallery. But that would void the laptop/computer inclusion.
**I apparently cant post links until i have a higher post count but if you look up Sons of the Storm, you'll find their site.**
Second vote is New name for Blizz-Allstars, but seeing that they fought valve over the name of DOTA and Allstars, dropping it seems silly after all the effort.
Could be a mobile game. Blizzard admitted at the last Blizzcon that they began putting together a dev team specifically for expansion into mobile games.
Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me. Paladin-Sorcerer at your service! My Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Aeluron Big fanboy of Yrel now. Love her now
I suppose the thematic just didn't click with some people, be it "King Fu Panda hurr" or a general aversion to the lighter/softer vibe.
My guess: Dark Below IS the actual expansion. It was registered too soon, and blizz pulled it. Now they registered this crap, and at blizzcon they will reintroduce Dark Below.

Honestly could be an expansion for Hearthstone, I know the games still in beta, but it is called Hearthstone -Heroes of Warcraft It could possibly be that Heroes of the Storm could be bringing in new Heroes (classes)/cards, that aren't the original nine.
Or maybe it is related to Blizzard All Stars, maybe they decided to change the name, I guess it could be a lot of things really But I dunno , it doesn;t feel like a WoW expansion title to me.
I know it's not likely because of the mobile stuff, but I really hope it's a new Warcraft RTS game.
Hmm, HoTS could just be the name of a Day 1 DLC bundle of cards for Hearthstone maybe.
