Since you end up having a few dozen followers in the endgame, and its great fun to play with them to simulate a vivid world, wouldn’t it be nice to have the ability to rename all of them (including those at crafting stations) ? Also, i figure that people will have their own preferences in what kind of follower is how important to them depending on role/job/creature type, name, character appearance etc. So, wouldn’t it also be a nice gimmic (and easy to implement) to provide 3 roles, so the player can name the roles and sort the followers?
(if you could later command a group of followers via mods like that you could even simulate battle… in theory)
