The "variants" thing is … Well, I found the (A)D&D varuants quite lame :

normal: Ghul
harder : Grul (reminds me of ("cruel")

(Note: This is the English "Ghoul" translated by someone into German-language editions of (A)D&D. Names taken from my memory, could thus be distorted.)

I thought : Didn't they have more creativety at hand ?

More variations on the Ghoul theme : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghoul_(…ns_%26_Dragons)

Besides, an imho still very good marketing thing is to let the fans decide the name of a monster …
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
