Thrall sounds cool. Considering its Old Norse it is a name Humans would give an Orc. But still sounds cool.
Go'el just invokes too much Superman for it to be passable. Love the WowWiki entry for Thrall tho...
"Thrall (birthname Go'el, or alternatively known as Green Jesus)" http://www.wowwiki.com/Thrall.
They really need to kill him off for the sake of story telling.
As someone mentioned before, good Orcish names all sound like something Klingons would come up with. Blizz should put in a policy that from now on all Orc names are to be invented by people fluent enough in Klingon to recite Shakespeare in Klingon at Star Trek conventions.
Please stop linking wowwiki, it's so out of date.

He was an honorable Orc, he tried to fix things and make peace (mostly) and was a pretty cool Orc all around despite being a little odd from an Orc perspective.
When he almost got beat by Garrosh before that was fine. I didn't fault him for that. It's more than immediately following on the heels of him using a badass artifact to Hadouken a massive dragon, he gets smacked once by Garrosh, tucks tail and runs away, and then he sneaked back in to try to steal the killing blow. Had it not been for that bolded bit, it would still be okay ... But that's just fucked up. He hid and then once we neutralized the threat, he tried to take some credit for the fight. Totally not something I'd have expected from Thrall, ever. It just doesn't fit his established character at all.
Oh and then there's this bullshit:
"Thank you for helping me end the great mistake I made long ago, that led our people into this dark place. I could not do it alone. Let me regain my honor, and end Garrosh's reign of terror once and for all."
Yeah, no kidding Thrall.
Let's just hope he won't grow up to become another world saving super shaman.
