In the comics, it's said that he has a name, but it's been so long since anyone has said it, they've all forgotten what it was.Or a have name? They all call eachother by the names given to them by mother. But #5 is always #5. Did i miss something?

Maybe because due to his situation from jumping forward in time, becoming stuck in the apocalypse and then being inducted into being a time-traveling assassin, he probably never thought about needing a name because of his circumstances. Think of it like this: the reason why everyone else picked a name for themselves because they had normal lives, where having names would be common. When it comes to the Commission, they don't seem to care about regular names of their time traveling assassins (unless you're working at the main building, where it seems to be optional), but code names (think of it, we have The Handler, whose name has never come up. Hazel and Cha-Cha sound like normal names, but they could very well be codenames, as hazel is the name of a plant and Cha-Cha is a dance of Cuban origin. Five, as strange as it may be, sounds like a pretty good codename). So, given the situation he's been through, he's never thought of getting himself an actual name to hall himself.
But that's just my hypothesis, I could very well be wrong.
They had names when they were kids, working as heroes. In the flashbacks to that time, Allison and Luthor were using each other's names while making cow-eyes at one another. Diego and Ben called each other by name, as did Ben and Klaus. Also, Mom calls them all by name. They weren't just names they randomly chose for themselves.
