I believe that since the name-word origin is Greek not Latin that the proper term is Octcephiles

The same problem I have with platypuses or platypi! (Or like they say on Phineas and Ferb, "platypeople!")

OCTOPODES! it comes from Ancient Greek ;) octopi is a latin plural (Classical studies finaly worth something T.T)

Many assume that the plural for octopus is octopuses that is incorrect. The correct one is octopodes. This is because octopus is greek and the plural therefore is octopodes. Although, to my understanding, either version can be used along with octopi. C:

It doesn't really matter which it is, like an argument one of my teachers classes have been having for two years about whether it's osprey (Os-pre) or osprey (Os-pray). Might take up that osprey osprey argument though...
