  1. The correct answer here and a common mistake is that is the monster of Dr. Victor Frankenstein.

    Mary Shelley’s original novel never ascribes an actual name to the monster; although the monster does call himself, when speaking to his creator, Victor Frankenstein, the “Adam of your labors” (in reference to the first man created in the Bible). Victor refers to the monster as “creature”, “fiend”, “spectre”, “the demon”, “wretch”, “devil”, “thing”, “being” and “ogre”.
