Was Frankenstein the Name of the Monster?
FACT: Although Victor is often called “Doctor” in movie versions of Frankenstein, he isn’t a doctor in the book. In the book, Victor Frankenstein is an scientist with a background in the theory of medicine. Excuse the meme at the top of the page in this respect, it makes sense in context of the movie… but not the book.
What Was Frankenstein’s Monster’s Name?
In the novel, the monster is identified by words such as “creature”, “monster”, “demon”, and “it.” Speaking to Victor Frankenstein, the monster refers to himself as “the Adam of your labours,” and elsewhere as someone who “would have” been “your Adam,” but is instead “your fallen angel.” 
Simply put, the “monster” doesn’t get an official name in the book, but it is accurate to refer to him as “Frankenstein’s monster” as Victor Frankenstein created him.
FACT: Although in the movies the “monster” is presented as not being intelligent, this isn’t the case in the book. The monsters teaches himself to read and speak, has a long monologue full of introspection and philosophical musing, and makes some complex decisions and demands in the book.
