Renaming Classes

You know, it's pretty regularly known that Necromancers are people who can reanimate the dead, and that Conjurers can summon minions to aid them in battle, thus how Myth and Death wizards get their game classes in Wizard101. But then if I look at something like Thaumaturgy, do we really know what that is? This game is mostly directed toward kids, but actually if you look it up, Thaumaturges is the ancient Greek version of a supernatural, but it's not directed toward a certain TYPE of magic. They're trying to fool people into thinking that Thaumaturges are Ice wizards??? This injustice needs to end! And what about Theurgy? We need some renaming to do here!

Conjurer, Necromancer and Pyromancer may remain. But as for the others:

Thaumaturge (Thaumaturges, Thaumaturge's, Thaumaturgy, etc.)
Maybe Tribeam? Or something? I's hard to find a name for an ice wizard. You have my sympathy, Kingsisle.

Diviner (Diviners, Diviner's, Divining, etc.)
If you've read the entire Harry Potter series (or at least books three through five), you'd probably first think of seeing the future. This is very true. So maybe we could say, like something like Typhoonist? Ooh, I like that.

Theurgist (Theurgists, Theurgist's, Theurgy, etc.)
Theurgist is actually like the Egyptian version of a wizard. That kind of reminds me of the Balance school in Krokotopia. So then shouldn't we replace the Balance school with a Life school? And then make Mooshu a Balance place? No!! How about Cleric? Yes, Cleric! Or Terra! Yeah! Or Inquisitor! There we go! Maybe Mystic?

Sorcerer (Sorcerers, Sorcerer's, Sorcery, etc.)
Sorcerers are pretty much like Defilers, they summon spirits to do their bidding. Are Balance wizards Defilers? Just the opposite! (The opposite is actually Summoning, but let's stick with the facts.) How about Paladin? Or Guardian? Or Sandsifter, because it's sort of desert-themed.
