Moffat on "The Name of the Doctor"

Steven Moffat on Doctor Who series 7 finale:
Q: What can you tell us about the finale? 
SM: It’s full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctors greatest secret. We’re not pretending, we’re not kidding, it’s actually going to happen. The episode is called "The Name of the Doctor" and involves our hero in a conflict that is very, very personal to him. Usually he’s saving other people, but this time he might be the one who needs to be saved. We’ll also find out what makes his new companion so impossible and there’s a surprise that no one has got right so far, and one that will change the Who forever!

To the dismay of many fans, its seems we may actually learn the name of the Doctor. I think the biggest problem I have with this is that there isn't a name that could do it justice. Part of his anonymity is what I really like about the show. In a way, it gives us the message that he can really be anyone, and that you don't have to be an alien to be able to save the world. Thoughts?
