カーラボス [kaarabos] in Japanese. The name of this monster comes from Greek, although there's some confusion as to which word is referred. There is the word κάραβος, κάραβις [kárabos, kárabis] which means 'ship', and on the other hand there is καραβίδα、καραβίς [karabida, karabis] which means 'shiny lobster' or 'crawfish'. It could be possible that the meanings of the two were mixed up, on accident or delibaretely, due to the plural sounding the same (minus the stress on the first 'a' in 'ship').
