So I've been curious about this for a while.
 
I get that Steven Strange was a doctor when he became the Sorceror Suprem so he got the handle "Doctor Strange"
What i'm wonderin' here is now Brother Voodoo is Sorceror Supreme why didn' they just leave him as Brother Voodoo? Doe he have a doctorate or PHD or whatever too?

There's also a nice explanation in the "Doctor Voodoo" "graphic novel".

You have to buy it, or find it somewhere :) 
 
A minor summary though, is that he was supposed to be named "Doctor Voodoo" since day 1.  However, Stan Lee didn't like that name too much, and went with  "Brother Voodoo".  After he became the Sorceror Supreme, he ended up getting the name.

he has a Ph.D in psychiatry(shades of Frasier!) and is, next to the Black Panther, or the Blue Marvel, arguably one of the most intelligent and educated superheroes(esp of colour) extant in the Marvel Universe!

I think he's a psychiatrist/psychologist(which requires a doctorate), hence like his predecessor Stephen Strange, he can legally call himself "Dr"!
