    Infamous Orcs?

    I know that there were a lot of infamous orcs, such as Gothmog who served under the command of the Nine, and was the lieutenant in charge of the siege of Minas Tirith, who was later killed by Aragorn and Gimli. Who are other infamous orcs that are somewhat well known in the LotR Tolkien world?

    Well, there's Boldog, who led an attack on Doriath but was killed by Mablung, and there were quite a few in the fall of Gondolin- Lug, Balcmeg, Orcobal, to name but a few. Azog, who slew Thrór. Bolg, Azog's son. We do not, however, know whether Gothmog was an orc or something else. He may even have been one of the Nazgûl.

    Curiously Gothmog shares the name with a lord of Balrogs who was the lieutenant to Morgoth, so perhaps this new Gothmog was a maia too.

    Orcs I recall are Uglúk and Grishnákh who captured Merry & Pippin.

    Indeed, those are named orcs, but not particularly infamous for their evilness or accomplishment as warriors are they? There are other named orcs, such as Mauhur, Radbug, Shagrat, Gorbag and Ufthák, but these are not particularly notorious for their ways.

    Mazog is a Turbine creation, not Tolkien's.

    Mazog is still an orc, we aren't just counting the orcs from the books since Gothmog wasn't mentioned in Return of the King and was a Jackson creation.

    no, he was mentioned once.

    "He is mentioned only once in The Lord of the Rings, at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, following the loss of his master: in response to the arrival of the Rohirrim, he called his army's reserve out of Osgiliath and into the main battle, and brought in Easterlings, Southrons, Variags, and troll-men "into the fray". That aside, the details of Gothmog's nature and role are a matter of speculation"

    Nerf healing in PvMP and just maybe it will be worth it again.

    Incorrect. Also, he wasn't specified as an orc.

    "He now was destroyed; but Gothmog the lieutenant of Morgul had flung them into the fray; Easterlings with axes, and Variags of Khand."

    I forgot about that line, still none the less The op mentions Gothmog as an infamous orc. He is also widely believed to be an orc.

    I know, just pointing out he isn't PJ's creation nor is he certain to be an orc (could be a Nazgûl or Man).

    It seems highly unlikely, to me at least, that an orc would be the lieutenant of Minas Morgul, or that one would exhibit the intelligence and sense of humor the bastardized movie character displayed. It seems far more likely that he would be a Nazgul, or a man of Khand, or Harad, but who knows. I refuse to automatically accept Peter Jackson's word for it. Just because something happens in PJ's movies doesn't mean that's the way it is.
    Azog and Bolg are probably the only two orcs who can truly said to be "infamous", or "notorious."

    Agree - Robert Fosters Complete Guide to Middle Earth says Gothmog 'may be a Nazgul' and this makes more sense than an Orc Lieutenant of Minas Morgul. Even a big pink one with some funky scars and missing appendages

    There are arguments that can be made for Gothmog being a nazgul, an orc, or a man. I tend to think that a man may be most likely, and there is a good post summarizing this position here:
