I don't see the big deal with calling the creature Frankenstein. Victor Frankenstein creates him, he identifies himself as the son of Victor, hence he is a Frankenstein. I'm not saying it's the most correct thing to call him but it's not technically incorrect. More to the point, why every time you call the creature "Frankenstein" some pretensions cunts gotta pop up and go "Actually, Frankenstein was the creator, you mean Frankenstein's Monster", like they even read the ******* book

i read the novel for Mary Shelly's Frankenstein in school, and i would highly suggest it for anyone who likes classic/spoopy novels.

In Chapter 16 of Frankenstein when The Creature is confronting Victor he says:

At length the thought of you crossed my mind. I learned from your papers that you were my father, my creator; and to whom could I apply with more fitness than to him who had given me life?

The Creature considers himself the child of Victor Frankenstein. He self-identifies as a Frankenstein, and we think that choice should be respected. That’s why calling The Creature by that name isn’t actually incorrect. He thinks he is the son of Victor Frankenstein, so it makes sense that he would take that name.

In the novel the creature is only referred to as "The Creature", it doesn't identify itself as Victor's son in any way, besides acknowledging that he created it.

It was strange that in the retarded move "I-Frankenstein" they called the creature "adam" then switched to calling him "Frankenstein" halfway through inexplicably.

Frankenstein's monster is called Adam.

i don't call him Frankenstein's monster, i call him Frankenstein's creation because there's very little he does in the book that construes as monstrous instead of ignorant and what he does that can be considered monstrous most people are capable of.
