What is Frankenstein the monster's name?

Asked by Vignette (1728points) 1 week ago

He does not have a name that I can find and the closest reference is “the Adam of your labours”. I think it is time he got a name. What should we call the green big guy?

Always known as the Creature in the old James Whale/Boris Karloff films.
If he must have an actual name, I favour something like Trevor or Steve.

@lucillelucillelucille @ucme Somehow Madelein Kahn calling out “Steve” in Young Frankenstein just doesn’t work for me.

@Vignette Don’t get me started on Maddy Kahn…I love her to bits!

@lucillelucillelucille Jim? How about James, James has a bit of class and stature sound to it. Call me James….James Frankenstein.

@Vignette -Jimmy Fronkensteen is better.

@lucillelucillelucille Jimmy Fronkensteen sounds like a name of the Sax player in the E Street Band.

In the Dean Koontz series, he took the name Deucalion

The truth of course is Boris Karloff owns that role, forget De Niro & all other pale imitations.
So in honour of him, the big guy shall be forever known as Boris…okay, It’s not the most menacing of names for a monster but I can live with that.

I guess he could take the name of my ex…they had about the same personality.
