Confirmed independantly on a save of my own. Unknown if related to reputation, I hadn't noticed it until I became a legendary hero.

This bug is still present in 0.42.05.
2016-01-25 00:55   
Though 0.42.06 may change it: "Then I added adjectives in the announcement names of people when you don't know their names, so the combat logs etc. aren't so ambiguous" (devlog http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/ [^] from 2015-01-24).

Just encountered this in 43.06. I told a town about killing a dragon, a giant, and a marsh titan. I also told them about one of my (now dead) followers killing a cyclops. When I introduced myself, the reply goes like,
"The dwarf drunk Ilral Konnish: [Ilral Konnish is dumbstruck for a moment.] A legend? Here? I can scarcely believe it. I am [SPEAKER:TRANS_NAME]. How can I be of service? Are you stalking a dangerous beast?"

Rockphed: I assume you meant 0.42.06, since the latest version at this time is only 0.43.04.

I'm having have the same issue. This can be distinguished from the widely reported "Hi I'm TRANS_NAME]" bug (which occurs in sapients who don't have a name) because here the sapient in question does have a name, it just doesn't print correctly when he uses the "dumbstruck" greeting. I'm using 43.05.

In data => speech => greet.txt which can be edited, the token language points towards the use of [CONTEXT:] to seek places and persons rather than self referencially.

Supplied wiki link, though it is out-dated as more speech entries have been added since, but is helpful for reference.

However in the wiki it had been represented solely as [SPEAKER:TRANS_NAME] upon the same general.txt file (not knowing what particular version that comes from) compared to [CONTEXT:SPEAKER:TRANS_NAME] which can be found in the current edition of 44 & 47.01.

Suggesting that CONTEXT is defective somehow given that [AUDIENCE:RACE] works correctly and by stretch of imagination editing in a custom response using [SPEAKER:RACE] could flatly tell the player the information without the pretext.
