I've seen a lot of distaste here for the term " Xenomorph". This name has been around for some 26 years, since James Cameron coined it in Aliens. I understand that part of the problem is that Xenomorph isn't really a proper name, but an adjective. So what do all of you think? Any ideas as to what might be a better name for the beloved Xeno?

How about Incestivus Raptus, Linguafoeda Acheronsis or Biomechanical Nightmare? :D Plus I think the word Necro can also serve. Anyway the Xenomoph not served by a chronological factor. See Shaw or another crew using that name would be a bad idea.

You know, Shambhala, I was kinda ambivalent about this but the more I think about it, the more I definitely don't want to hear Xenomorph in the sequel. Not that I think we will. How about this: The BIOLATOR. Oh, I'm just full of fun today.

Now that name fits better with the Trilobite, :p joking. But I do not joke with Star Beast XD

its xenomorph, nothing will ever change that. its interesting, iconic, makes sense, and like the term "space jockey" if you use it for such a long time, it will never change no matter how much you shove a new name into the movies. so why even bother trying? lol

No harm in tryin, here's a latin one that seemed to fit (imo anyhow) [i]silex rictus[/i] Still needs a bit of work though.

Out of interest, one of the Greek to Latin translations for xenomorph is [i]allophylus forma[/i] (just thought I'd mention that)

Xenomechanoid or Xenovenator Gigerensis

Craigmore you cut up! My uncle had Court of the Crimson King when I was a kid. Used to stare at that cover for hours. Schizoid Man scared me a bit. Okay, how about: Macerator Oysterlips?

I have a pretty good idea of where it is. It's just down there, in the basement....

[b]Giger Beast[/b] is the only name I'm truly comfortable with in that it relates to the 'original' [i]Star Beast[/i] script and it's by [i]Giger[/i] ONLY. This forthcoming Gigerless-universe franchise i.e. Prometheus 2, 3, mini series ... wonder what [i]xeno design renaissance[/i] will show its referential head above the parapet.
2013 sci-fi horror novels 'Custodian' and 'Tandem' available from Amazon, B&N, iTunes etc...

Legendary Xenomorph

MemberOvomorphApr-17-2013 2:54 PM
xenomorph is fine by me since the films, comics and games always have xenomorph. although others are named without xenomorph such as predaliens, praetorians and razor claws. I like to call them as demons from the sky or as engineers would say experiment gone wrong.

MemberOvomorphApr-17-2013 6:11 PM
How about Mighty Morphin Power Alien?....No..okay.

The Anunnaki were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, mighty men of high reno

Bruno has grown on me. Just like Bob and Cuddles did a while back

Not a map, an invitation

MemberOvomorphApr-17-2013 8:12 PM
Thank you Cuponator but I have to point out that unlike Bob and Cuddles, Bruno is a serious suggestion for an alternative to Xenomorph. For those still on the fence, may I suggest Brunomorph.

Here's another one: The MORB.

MemberOvomorphApr-17-2013 9:52 PM
Anyway I'm a little tired of the word xenomorph but also we don't know if the sequel will have monsters (or the deacon, because it could be completely new creatures, who knows)

Major Noob

MemberOvomorphApr-17-2013 10:29 PM
The MORB. I know it sounds like NOOB but that's just a coincidence, I assure you. Heretofore I will refer to the Xeno as the MORB.

Redhead Ripley

MemberOvomorphApr-17-2013 10:54 PM
What's about Plaque ( xeno as an ultimate parasite) consumes everything what lives, and after that dye, and only its spores survive; waiting for another chance/host. Still the xenomorph is my favorite name!! :-)

Hey that Predator is playing chess with a MORB! The Predators name is Stinky.

The unknown, as we know, is far more terrifying than anything we could assign a name to. This is why people so desperately feel a need to name and know everything. This is also why we fear death (because truthfully, no one knows, if we were certain there was a cloudy heaven waiting, well that wouldn't be scary at all) This I why the creature is so much more effective when it remains nameless. Xenomorph is a stupid title, it literally just means Alien, or 'Foreign Form' I think ill stick with "that creature from Alien" or "The beast" Xenomorph sounds like a bug infestation, which set the tone for the stupid Cameron follow-up.

I Personally can't think of anything more mysterious and frightening than MORB. The way everybody refuses to embrace it only proves that it's too frightening to even type on a keyboard. Good thing I have the courage to do this for you. MORB is the new BOO!!

Necronom 4

MemberNeomorphJun-22-2013 1:04 PM
Bruno LOL....I call it Necronom ...It's more of a tip of the hat to H R Giger than anything else. Or Necromorph. I do like the term Morb. What about "Dickhead"?

The poster was good though!
