Etymology of Godzilla

Anguirus
Godzilla’s Family Tree

At one period, the theory of Gojira was described as “a cross between a gorilla and also a whale”.

The word alludes to the size, power and aquatic source of Godzilla. A favorite story is that Gojira was really a nickname Ishiro Honda and associates used to described a fellow worker of Toho who was “oversize and rough-looking”.

Contrary to popular notion, the non-traditional Godzilla spelling wasn’t the concept of the American provider. Before the movie was sold by them to US vendors, the international department of Toho had initially promoted an English-subtitled print below the name of Godzilla. As found by Ed Godziszewki and Godzilla historians Steve Ryfle Toho came up with Godzilla as a coarse English transliteration of the name Gojira.
