Was Frankenstein the Name of the Monster?
Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley in which Dr. Victor Frankenstein creates an unnamed “monster”.
What Was Frankenstein’s Monster’s Name?
In the novel, the monster is identified by words such as “creature”, “monster”, “demon”, and “it”. Speaking to Victor Frankenstein, the monster refers to himself as “the Adam of your labours”, and elsewhere as someone who “would have” been “your Adam”, but is instead “your fallen angel.”
The monster doesn’t get an official name in the book, but it is accurate to refer to him as “Frankenstein’s monster” as Victor Frankenstein created him.
