Kaishin Muba's name literally means "Ocean God Muba" in Japanese. Onscreen, it is only ever called Kaishin (海神,   Kaishin, lit. "Ocean God"). Godzilla Toho Giant Monster Pictorial Book gives the creature the English name Moova. Some merchandise instead refers to Kaishin Muba as God Kaishin (ゴッドカイシン,   Goddo Kaishin).
