The King of the Monsters his own bad self:

Legend has it that Toho Studios devised the name Godzilla, or more accurately, his Japanese name, Gojira, through describing him as a combination of a gorilla (Gorira) and a whale (Kojira).

I highly recommend the unedited Japanese version of Gojira, which is actually more serious in tone and less cheesy than the hastily-constructed American version with Raymond Burr.

Of course, it’s all still men in rubber suits…
