NAME ORIGIN
    Great is a word denoting something unusually or comparitively large. The word comes from the Middle English word grete meaning "thick, coarse". Malboro is thought to be a reference to Marlboro cigarettes, which the brand itself is named after Great Marlborough Street in London where the original cigarette factory was located, due to the creature's penchant for exuding toxic fumes.
