After the resignation, Benedict shall be known as...
Don't tell I did not tell you so. Bishop Emeritus of Rome.
But with his regnal name, good thing the Vatican chose to keep it even though I thought he would be referred to as Bishop Joseph Ratzinger...BUT!
Since he will be the Bishop Emeritus of Rome, and the tradition is for the Rome Bishop to change his name upon election, then it makes sense that he retains his name.
