0009215: Vampire true names revealed when they declare their weapon or armor an artifact
When a vampire dwarf declares his weapon to be an artifact and grows attached to it, you can see the true name of the vampire when you look at the kills made by the weapon, under Slayer.
Press shift L
Select artifact
Press k for kills
If the dwarf is a vampire, their full vampire name is displayed as the Slayer

You have to be in the situation where your vampire makes his weapon or shield an artifact.
I have included a save with a vampire from 40.24 of DF, saved in 42.01.

Choose Kaamcammen, Dreamsfleshy, a copper mace in the artifact screen
Go to kills
Refeb Clearspell the Jailer of Insanity the Dwarf Vampire is Thikut Lilumasob the militia captain

Can you please check if resolving 0009182, "Vampire true names (and therefore their vampiric nature) revealed upon assigning occupations" in 0.42.02 fixed this issue too?

I used that save in 42.02. The problem with the artifacts is still there.

The only way to test it completely in a new version is to have a fortress old enough to get a vampire that will declare his item an artifact.

I already marked this as fixed for next time.
