It’s how people see you and what they think of you.

One of my favorite dinos.

Diablo = Devil
Ceratops comes from the Greek “Κέρατο” which means horn.

So Diabloceratops means Devil horn.

Wrong again.

Deino comes from the Greek Δεινός which means skillful, awesome, formidable and not from Δεινά which means suffering, bad, terrible.

Wait, deino means awesome? Man, so I guess deinocheirus means awesome hand😂

Δεινός πολεμιστής which means in free translation mighty worrior or fearless worrior and we use it when we want to say that someone is really good at what he does.

Τα δεινά του κόσμου which means in free translation the bad things of the world and we use it when we want to indicate a terrible situation.

Yeah, I wouldn’t trust wiki so much!!

There are many Greek words that are spelled and sound the same but in different genter mean a whole different thing and it’s very easy for someone who is not Greek to confuse them.

The thing is, everywhere I’ve read it (this includes books) it’s always been translated as “Terrible crocodile”, same with Deinocheirus (terrible hand), Dinofelis (terrible cat) and Dinosaur (terrible lizard).

For that matter, I’ve never heard of any scientific name using the other meaning before.
