For a book (let's say on cryptozoology) I need to come up with a scientific name for bigfoot. I'm thinking of using a literal translation of bigfoot for the genus. As typical in scientific naming, the genus will be followed by species and subspecies but there will be several different ones of them, so that's not topic of this question.
A long time ago I came up with
Magnapede (e.g. Magnapede homo universitas) but I think the declination is off. Someone gave this a try at DeviantArt and came up with
magnipus (i.e. Sasquatch magnipus) but that seems off since foot should be
I'm quite sure the second part should be
-pes which is the nominative of foot. I guess both
Magnus- (feminine/masculine nominative of big) would work for the first part.
Magnuspes. Does that make sense? Other ideas are welcome too! I don't know any latin, so correct me if any of this is wrong.
bonus points for a cool name for biosphere when viewed as a species of bigfoot. I came up with Magnapes planeta vivus so far.
