NAME ORIGIN
    The name Big Horn refers to this creature's most defining feature: a single giant horn in the middle of its head. A horn is a bony, permanent, hollow growth, often curved or pointed, that project from the upper part of certain ungulate mammals, such as cattle, sheep, goats and antelopes. The word comes from the Greek word kéras. It is based on the rhinoceros, a species of horned ungulates native to Africa and Asia.
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this enemy was named Gigan Rhino. Gigan is an abbreviation for gigantic. Gigantic is a word meaning huge or enormous, the word comes from the Greek gigas meaning "giant". Rhino comes from rhinoceros, which derives from the Greek rhinos meaning "nose" and kéras meaning "horn".
