I say Frankenstein is short for Frankenstein-class Electric Flesh Golem so it's legit.

I tend to think that insisting Frankenstein isn't the monster's name is committing exactly the same sin as Victor did by not acknowledging his familial responsibility for the life he'd created. Victor Frankenstein is the dad. Adam Frankenstein is the son. (It's not in the book, but Shelley referred to the creature as 'Adam' when talking about the book)

The monster took Frankenstein as his name in the book, IIRC...

A wise person once said, "Knowledge is understanding that Frankenstein is not the monster. Wisdom is understanding that Frankenstein *is* the monster."
