So it's "Theta Sigma" ("Thete" for short), but I swear he's saying "Pete", and I can't imagine a better real name for the Doctor than "Pete".
In the McCoy era it was mentioned that "Theta Sigma" is just a nickname, but it doesn't matter. The Doctor's real name is Pete, which is exactly why he insists on being called the Doctor.
My theory is that the Doctor won't tell anyone his name because it's just really embarrassing.

More British names:
If you lived on a planet of people with names like Rassilon, Borusa, and Romanadvoratrelundar, what could be more embarrassing than to end up with "Pete"?
These days, Drax is posting all sorts of crap to the Doctor's Facebook timeline and the Doctor isn't sure whether to unfriend him or what.
I thought his name was Time Turner?
Wait, the Doctor has Fairly Oddparents?

Any name is the Doctor's "real" name, if you get him drunk enough.
The big secret is that Time Lords are hung up on names, and the universe doesn't really give a shit. Some 27,575,322,275 dead people thought his name was John Smith, the Doctor, or God. I don't think they'd find screaming horrific oblivion more comfortable knowing he has a secret name that he didn't use while killing them.
I think the show might be pulling the ultimate double bait-and-switch. The season finale revealed that his real name is utterly irrelevant. It also revealed the existence of a secret incarnation who lost his title. The 50th anniversarry special will reveal his birth name, because it's the only name the John Hurt incarnation has left. And absolutely nothing will happen as a result.
Spoilers: it's WWWXANDERBZ.

Well that's not a very good name at all!
