Tank role could use a class name update

I find some Tank names to be a bit underwhelming, so I thought about some new ones.

Tank/Tank “Guardian” (Fine imo)
Tank/Fighter “Warrior”
Tank/Rogue “Fell Knight”
Tank/Cleric “Paladin” (fine)
Tank/Archer “Warden” (fine imo)
Tank/Mage “Vanguard”
Tank/Summoner “Keeper” (fine)
Tank/Bard “Argent” (fine)

what do you guy think? And if you have ideas lmk.

    I think the Tank part of the name is the part that needs to go.
    It just seems too meta. Tanks don't even exist in AoC as far as I know, so why would anyone use the name of a vehicle that doesn't exist to describe a person?

    I feel like Tank should be replaced with ... Shield, or Guardian or Warden or something protecty soundy. Meat-Shield? I dunno.

    Cleric isn't called Ambulance, for example..

    I have to agree.

    IMO tank should be renamed to Warrior, and then all is good.

    Bulwark?
    Stalwart Knight?
    Swordbane?
    Breakspear? (in line with 'breakwater')
    Shieldborn?

    The name would be Juggernaut, at those times it was a heavily armored cart.

    Tank are a speciality.
    They are tanky and the exert battle field control and disrupt enemy formations.

    Vanguards are ofensive tanks. Heavy cavalry SHOOK troops.
    Guardians are defensive tanks. They STAY in formation, like heavy infantry.

    I think this is the most essential definition.
