Starter Pets

It would be nice if hunter starter pets started with names other than the default family one. Many of these already have suitable names, if they could be made to show on the pet, others could maybe receive suitable new names. The Void Elf pet was already called 'Voidstalker' until its family was changed in 8.1.5.
