- The Greek name given translates to "Skull Fish". Ironically, said body part is not this Monster's most prominent feature.
- The unofficial Arabic name given (أمّ دماغ ʾUmmu Dimāġ) translates to Mother of a Brain.
- In Arabic, the words "father" and "mother" can be used to indicate possessiveness. For example, "Father of Eyes" (أبو عيون) would mean "the one with prominent eyes".
- It is common to use these possessive forms for animal names, such as the swordfish being called Abū Sayf (أبو سيف) literally "Father of a Sword" but really meaning "possessor of a sword".
