Just tried a very old variant, Kamband, with lots of strange, greatly unbalancing but hilarious ideas. One of the few features of that variant that I think could be ported to ToME without awaking the wrath of the migty Balancers :-) was the giving of random personal names to intelligent monsters. I am no ToME source guru, but I don't think it should be too difficult to implement it, as we have the random names generator (brother of acronym of the feared RNG) ready.

Obviously, there should be an option to toggle monster names on/off.

Come on, wouldn't you like to face the Great Wirm of Power "Moron"? :-) (I know it's a name
who appears quite often for both random character names and random artifacts)
Would you be killed by him, your character's tombstone would be a very interesting screenshot for oook at least...

What do you think about it?

This is essentially the same as the poll asking about random uniques. I wouldn't want to see a non-unique monster with a name; it'd be too confusing.
