    Agreed heavily! This also adds a major discrepancy in the mob names that makes no sense and can--and will--confuse players searching for zombie mobs in the creative mode menu.

    I think I know the reason behind the Zombified Piglin name. 

    Zombie Villager has no more Villager mind.

    Zombified Piglin has still Piglin mind.

    Agreed. Even the zombie versions of villagers are not called "Zombiefied Villagers".

    I actually really like Zombified Piglin because it feels more mysterious.

    A Zombie Piglin feels like:
    "It's not just a Piglin, it's a Zombie Piglin."


    But a Zombified Piglin feels more like:
    "It's not just a Piglin, it's a Piglin that has been Zombified by something or someone."

    Also whenever someone hears [past tense verb] [thing] without knowing who or what [past tense verb] that [thing]

    the person is most often immediately going to start asking like:
    "Who or what zombified those Piglins?"

    But again with a Zombie Piglin, it's just a [thing]

    Agreed, but they should also keep "pigman" in the name to begin with.  It's a familiar term we've had long before Microsoft bought Minecraft, and they shouldn't make such a forceful rewrite of the formerly unused mob's identity.

    Agreed. In fact, I think it would be a better idea to leave their name as is, and change "Piglin" to "Pigman" for the upcoming mob.

    If the name change was about political correctness, I'd like to see how many people would call someone a "pigman" rather than just a "pig", and how that last name would be directly rooted from a game's lore and creatures.  When's the last time you thought real hard about insulting someone thinking "hey, this guy reminds me of the things I beat up on a video game all the time"?  I'd imagine that, especially with Mojang's younger audience, the likelihood of such a premeditated offense would be pretty slim.

    WolveReigner781 Commander Twenty the purpose of changing the name to piglin was to make them seem less human. pigman implies relation to players and villagers, which would be a mistake.

    I like zombified. It sounds more interesting. A zombie piglin just sounds like its own thing, but hearing that it's "zombified" makes new players think about if there's a regular version.

    I have to agree with this. If they're going to rename the Zombie Pigman to match with the Piglins, then the Zombie Piglin would be a better choice. Similar to calling zombified villagers "Zombie Villagers."

    I'll begrudgingly accept the changed appearance of the mob in 20w09a, but changing the name from "Zombie" to "Zombified" doesn't make sense. Others have already pointed out that this is inconsistent with the naming conventions the game already uses for zombie villagers, and that "zombified" is a pretty clunky and unpleasant word to say. I also take issue with the implications of the name. The "-ified" suffix implies that someone went and zombified the piglins, when in all likelihood they probably spawned that way, as zombie pigmen always have.

    I agree, primarily because every other zombie in the game, zombie horse, zombie villager, and the old zombie pigman all start with zombie. They should change all the names or keep the new one the same. Prefer the latter though because zombified doesn't really sound good.

    "Zombified Piglin" is such a tongue twist.

    Another disadvantage to "zombified", for command block users, is the ridiculously long data tag "IsImmuneToZombification" you have to type out if you want to use it.

    Practically, I don't like the name "zombified"; it makes it more annoying to search for spawn eggs, /summon, etc, and is inconsistent with zombie villagers and horses. If the argument is that "zombie" is a verb then how come villagers aren't "zombified"? It's just a confusing name that would make more sense if everything was just "zombie".

    Agreed! Zombie villager, zombie pigman, zombie horse... Why zombified piglin now though?

    Yes! I agree 100%. Zombie Piglin sounds so much better in my opinion.

    Yes please! I would like the Zombiefied Piglins to be Zombie Piglins and the Hoglins to be Fungihogs or just something way more distinguishable. They both have lin in the name so i mess their names up most of the time. The Zoglins, i think, should be Just Zogs or Zombie Fungihogs. I like the Strider. The name is good, though it is the same name of another creature in Horizon Zero Dawn. So i wasn't too impressed with the name. I will probably just keep referring to Piglins as Pigmen just because the letter L seems to have constant battles with my mouth. Random: But if I could rename the Strider, i would call it a Vulcan or Cinder Skipper. For clarity, a vote on this comment will count towards:

    Renaming Zombiefied Piglins to Zombie Piglin
    Renaming Hoglins to Fungihogs
    Renaming Zoglins to Zogs
    Renaming Strider to Vulcan or Cinder Skipper.

    Thanks for reading and any votes!

    I strongly agree! I feel that "Zombified Piglin" is quite a mouthful and that it should just be shortened to Zombie Piglin, like the old Zombie pigmen used to be.

    It keeps the more classic feel to them. I miss pigmen

    I agree. Zombified Piglin feels like it was a Piglin but it has turned into a zombie, whereas Zombie Piglin is a Piglin that is a Zobmie, whether it spawned like that or not. Additionally, is it is Zombie Villager, Zombie Horse and Zombie Pigman, so why Zombified Piglin.

    Zom bi fied Pig lin    is a 6 syllable mouthful. I don't care about the Pigman-Piglin change much, but "Zombified" is too long of a word.

    They changed it to put go on most likely because Piglin is a genderless form of pigman.
