OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 6:36 PMI'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?

OvomorphMember40 XPApr-16-2013 7:02 PMHow 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.

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 7:12 PMYou 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.

OvomorphMember40 XPApr-16-2013 7:35 PMNow that name fits better with the Trilobite, :p joking. But I do not joke with Star Beast XD

Not_my_intention

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 7:38 PMits 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

Not_my_intention

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 7:40 PMnot that it would be in the next Prometheus. of course not that would be stupid. buts thats still what they will always be known as.

FacehuggerMember357 XPApr-16-2013 7:49 PMNo 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.

OvomorphMember40 XPApr-16-2013 7:56 PMsound very good

FacehuggerMember357 XPApr-16-2013 8:04 PMOut of interest, one of the Greek to Latin translations for xenomorph is [i]allophylus forma[/i] (just thought I'd mention that)

OvomorphMember40 XPApr-16-2013 9:14 PMXenomechanoid or Xenovenator Gigerensis

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 9:30 PMI'll stick with alien organism....that's good enough for me.....

Major Noob

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 9:51 PMCraigmore 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?

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-16-2013 10:57 PMGreatest album cover ever...period.....and no comment....

Redhead Ripley

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 12:01 AMUltimate Survival :-)
I have a pretty good idea of where it is. It's just down there, in the basement....

Redhead Ripley

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 12:04 AMOr a ultimate parasite :-)

Custodian

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 1:38 AM[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...

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 5:57 AMxeno-schmeeno hahaaa,gonna keep it)) i like "bruno" one as well)) you guys are fun. and,yeah,for me they are just beasts or aliens,but that's good there are terms and classification,not a big fan of those slimies though-) xeno-schmeeno lol

Legendary Xenomorph

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 2:54 PMxenomorph 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.

Anunnaki50

OvomorphMember1 XPApr-17-2013 6:11 PMHow 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

ChestbursterMember838 XPApr-17-2013 7:42 PMBruno has grown on me. Just like Bob and Cuddles did a while back

Not a map, an invitation

Major Noob

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 8:12 PMThank 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.

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 8:13 PMHere's another one: The MORB.

shambs

OvomorphMember40 XPApr-17-2013 9:52 PMAnyway 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

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 10:29 PMThe 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

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-17-2013 10:54 PMWhat'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!! :-)

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-18-2013 4:20 PMHey that Predator is playing chess with a MORB! The Predators name is Stinky.

OvomorphMember1 XPApr-22-2013 10:53 AMThe 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.

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-22-2013 11:45 AMI 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

NeomorphMember1566 XPJun-22-2013 1:04 PMBruno 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!

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-22-2013 5:25 PMN4 that's priceless!
