what if Time Lords are only properly named after their deaths

like during their lives they have a name to be called by according to how they choose to live but their final name is their number of regenerations

which is why the Doctor doesn’t want to be named considering the implications

and then we find out that his name is Thirteen or a really low number considering his regenerations so far which is why it’s unlucky

because it represents the death of the Doctor himself
