NAME ORIGIN
    Dead is the state of being deceased or deprived of life. The word comes from the Old Norse daudhr. The head is the upper part of the body in humans, joined to the trunk by the neck and containing the brain, eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Head comes from the Old English word heafod, meaning "top of the body". Dead Head is also the name given to fans of the American classic rock band, the Grateful Dead.
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this enemy was named Floating Skull. Something that is floating is something hovers in liquid or air. The word comes from the Old English word flotian. The skull is the bony framework of the head, enclosing the brain and supporting the face. The word comes from the Old Norse word skalli.
