The Royal Name is a tradition that was started by Imperial Advisor Kiratanos, who would later be named Emperor Jarethan II. This tradition was began out of respect to Emperor Jarethan I, the founder of the Silvermoon Empire and by far one of the most influential leaders so far. Royal Names are not always chosen and more than often Emperors prefer their original names.

According to Imperial Advisor Eldarion, if he were to ascend to the Imperial Throne, he would likely choose the name Metachronos II.
