Roubini Get Picky With New Nickname

When renowned economist Nouriel Roubini said he wanted a new nickname because "Dr. Doom" was coming across a bit too negative, CNBC.com users duly stepped in to help the New York University Professor and chose "Roubini the Realist" as his new handle.

Apparently readers and viewers didn't get it quite right -- at least in the good doctor's opinion - and Roubini thinks that "Dr. Realist" would be a bit shorter and snappier.

Do you agree, or do you think the man formerly known as Dr. Doom should bow to the majority?
