Gigantes is the Spanish word for giants. Interestingly, giant was the name of this species in the original translation of Dragon Quest II. Gigantes can also refer to the giants of Greek myth that were fertilized by Gaia and fought the Greek Gods and Heracles.

In VIII, it is pronounced 'hee-gan-tay' by a barkeeper in Tryan Gully.
