Another online list of Avengers name for anyone to comment on:
https://www.ranker.com/list/list-of-every-avenger-of-all-time/super-hero-teams

Captain America a.k.a. Nomad, The Captain
Steven Rogers

-wasn't it confirmed by Stern/Byrne that it was officially just "STEVE"?

Black Widow (Claire Voyant)
Natalia Alianovna Romanova (a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff)

-wow, that's just embarrassing. She never used the Golden Age name even as an alias, afaik.

Mantis
Mandy Celestine (alias)

-"CELESTINE"? Never happened, right? Ya'd think since we learned Duquesne's name that we'd have learned her full family name by now. Sheesh.

Moondragon
Heather Douglas (a.k.a. H.D. Steckley)

-remind me what issue she went by "STECKLEY"?

Sersi
Circe (a.k.a. Sylvia Sersi)

-remind me what issue she went by "SYLVIA"?

Captain Britain a.k.a. Lionheart
Kelsey Leigh Shorr

-wow, that's just embarrassing too. Her file photo is of Brian. Other wrong photo matches are bad too but this is wrong gender!

Ares
Ares (a.k.a. John Aaron)

-remind me what issue she went by "JOHN AARON"?

Magdalene
Marissa Darrow

-is Magdalene her realname or codename?

Deathcry
unrevealed

-bring back Sharra Neramani! It'd be so easy after Chaos War aftermath.

Ravonna a.k.a.
Ravonna Lexus Renslayer

-remind me what issue she went by "LEXUS"?

Here's a 'fun' alphabetical infographic list by somebody online that might get your nitpicking juices flowing:

I think Byrne's retcon of Englehart's retcon only meant:

1. Steve's middle name isn't Grant. He doesn't have a middle name.

2. Steve doesn't have an older brother named Mike that died at Pearl Harbor (supposedly Cap took the Super Soldier Serum BEFORE America entered WW2)

3. Steve's father wasn't a diplomat and his parents weren't named Walter and Elizabeth.

4. Cap didn't grow up in Maryland.

I don't think whether Steve was short for Steven came up. The broad details the government came up for Cap's backstory was based on the family of a man named Walter Rogers from the State Department. He lost his sons Mike and Grant a few weeks earlier at Pearl Harbor. Steve meets Walter before he gets the false memories.

Just going to say I would never trust ranker.com information of anything except the voting they collect. Of course, they run the votes though some arcane algorithm so...

Yeah. What Rev said.


    Quote:

    Natalia Alianovna Romanova (a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff)

Yes, never Claire Voyant. Totally different character.


    Quote:
    Mantis
    Mandy Celestine (alias)

Does it ever really matter to anything? The character as she exists now may as well not have any human past whatsoever. And maybe she could change her name to This One.

Early Quasar. Sorry can't be more precise.


    Quote:
    Sersi
    Circe (a.k.a. Sylvia Sersi)



    Quote:

Mid-80s (circa Avengers #250), the name that the public knew her as was Sylvia Sersi.


    Quote:
    Captain Britain a.k.a. Lionheart
    Kelsey Leigh Shorr

Yeah. Ranker does this sort of thing a lot. For some movies, they will rank a remake, but list the actors from the original (or vice versa).


    Quote:
    Ares
    Ares (a.k.a. John Aaron)



    Quote:
    -remind me what issue she went by "JOHN AARON"?

It's the alias he used when he was raising Alexander. The Ares mini and for a good piece of his Avengers career.


    Quote:
    Magdalene
    Marissa Darrow



    Quote:
    -is Magdalene her realname or codename?

The $64k question. Popular theory is that she is the alt-universe Marissa Darrow.


    Quote:
    Deathcry
    unrevealed

Meh. No birds, kthx.

Mantis
Mandy Celestine (alias)


Hmm...well, her father's last name was Brandt. Maybe he named 'Mantis' after her mother/his wife in honor of her memory. Lau was her mother's name. Lau Brandt? At some point she was renamed by the Priests of Pama though.

According to

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantis_(Marvel_Comics)

Mandy Celestine was the name Mantis took when she lived in Willimantic, CT, for a year after giving birth to Sequoia (aka Quoi). I would guess the name "Mandy" puns on "Mantis" while "Celestine" alludes to her status as the Celestial Madonna

Marvel's official site says Lua's maiden name is Nguyen (probably a detail invented in a handbook entry). I wonder if that means Mantis's maternal uncle (the one who pimped her out) is named Kruuhl Nguyen or he's just her mother's half brother and Kruuhl's a last name. He went by Monsieur Kruuhl so Kruuhl's probably a last name right?
