NAME ORIGIN
    Iron is a ductile, malleable, silver-white metallic element used for making tools, implements and important structural materials. The word comes from the Old English isærn, meaning "holy metal" or "strong metal". A golem is an artifical human figure in Jewish folklore, created from inanimate materials and given life by the enchanted word Emet ("truth" in Hebrew) written on its forehead. Golems are commonly made from mud or clay, but fantasy writers have expanded this to include many other materials such as metal, wood and stone. The word comes from the Hebrew word gelem which means "raw material".
    In the original NES release of Final Fantasy, the Iron Golem's name was shortened to IronGOL, due to the 8 character limit on enemy names.
