Would you say the plural of “Bigfoot” is “Bigfeet”? Or “Bigfoots”?
Right now, honestly, when I need to use the plural, I usually revert to “Sasquatches” because I’m not sure what’s most proper.
The word “Bigfoot” is kind of a strange name for this creature, in my opinion. It started in the nineteen-fifties when Humboldt County road workers found large footprints in the dusty dirt of the unpaved road beds they created. But surely this creature has a better name than that. I would L-O-V-E to know what they call themselves!
The word “Sasquatch” is not really a Native American name. “Oma” is… but would you then say “I saw three Omas yesterday?”
“Yeti” is a great name, and easy to make into the plural, “Yetis”. I don’t think anyone would argue with that.
“Wild Man” seems most reasonable to me.. and the plural would be “Wild Men” . . . plain and easy. But there are so many wild and crazy men in the world today, who would know the term referred to something large, reclusive and hairy?
So, I just thought I’d put it out there for your opinions…. what do you think the plural of “Bigfoot” should be?
