Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is an 1818 novel by Mary Shelley about a medical student named Victor Frankenstein who creates a monster (who is never named). In popular culture, however, "Frankenstein" is taken to be the name of the monster, not its creator. This has been fertile ground for many, many debates about whether the monster could also properly be called "Frankenstein," either as a family name, an honorific, or simply because it's more recognizable and convenient.
