It's definitely Hawking, of course. Doctor Stephen Hawking, that is. That's why Doctor Timicin also was a valid guess.

Yes, the answer is, in fact, Doctor Stephen William Hawking. Tahna, since you actually guessed it, you're technically the winner. If someone had guessed wrong, of course, I was going to give it to Omega, fo the reason you've already cited. However, since his guess was unofficial, and yours was official, you win. It's up to you whether you want to do the next one yourself or give it to Omega.
