Vote on Dr. Doom's New Nickname

At the World Economic Forum in Davos last week, New York University professor and economist Nouriel Roubini said he was getting tired of being called "Dr. Doom."

The nickname came from a profile in the New York Times, but Roubini said he now prefers something like "Dr. Realism."

That doesn't have quite the comic book ring, though.

CNBC asked for suggestions Friday and response was very strong. We've narrowed down the field to five possibilities and want to know which one you like the best.


The winning name will be forwarded to Roubini, but there's no guarantee he'll take up the mantle.
