"Mono" is derived from one, the amount of heads the Pokémon currently has.
Monozu and its evolutionary line may be based upon the Lernaean Hydra of Greek Mythology, a beast that grew two more heads in its place if one was severed.

English names have been confirmed. Monozu is now called Deino. It appears to come from the words "dino" and "eins," which is German for "one." The entire evolutionary family follows a pattern of using the German words for 1, 2, and 3: Eins (Deino), Zwei (Zweilous), and Drei (Hydreigon). --Kianglo 00:48, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
