Well as I've pointed out, they could go with inquisitor. Would be something completely new for them.
Could even add to the lore a bit, read my post on the previous page.
As for other names for a monk, I have no idea
I'm taking this to a thesaurus !!!
The monk class prob wont be legal if they did make one since it belongs to whoever owns diablo hellfire now lol.
so essentially even though blizzard never made a monk class, diablo already had one
but i would like to see a easter egg reguarding this in diablo 3 thatd be cool =^.^=
kinda like how they made the cow lvl easter egg from diablo hellfire in 2 lol
how about chaplain lol
prosecuter lol XDXDXDXDXD
Bounty Hunter is one i like
instead of having a religious class you could have a group of ppl using diablo little scheme for their own benefit lol
have a Gun tree (not like a machien gun or rocket launcher but maybe just a pistol with ammo types) also it could have synergies to add to dragoon tree skills. like add fire damage to some spear skills through gunpowder and magic lol
Explosives Tree (if you dont like guns it can use satchels or grenades or moltive cocktail just for a different play style) but it doesnt synergy or strengthen other trees just itself except for maybe 1 skill for gun tree
Dragoon Tree (uses polearms for weapons and can combine with dragon like magic or maybe even shape shift into a dragon lol but thatd be at like lvl 30) and it could also have a dragon pet but does not let you shape shift and keep the pet
the game doesnt have to have a religious class lol
I think the monk or w/e you want to call him can also use curses in a certain degree.
Because that's what I think they should do:
You filthy demon are an abomination to life, I curse you with the wrath of small things and will decrease your size by 10 so that I can step on you and send you to the next world.
Or something like that?:P
Monks - don't - fight (Monks are peaceful and against violence- sorry to you bullet proof monk fans out there) and any game that has a monk class ( guildwars) usually is boring. and Diablo3 isn't going to be boring.
Do some research on east-asian history and you'll learn about conflicts between the asian religions (namely buddhism, taosim, confucianism), they just don't compare to most other religions, especailly the more familiar Abrahamic ones.

Well, I guess there really isn't any other name for it. I don't know why it bugs me, really. It's kind of one of those unexplainable things.
You could call the class the 'Disciple', doesn't have the same baggage monk seems to.
I have to say, if they made this class, I really hope they use weapons, an unarmed class wouldn't seem to fit well. Many melee special abilities could be untied to weapon damage, but empty weapon slots like the D&D monk just doesn't feel right for Diablo...
