Naming Mythical creatures

I'm a little curious on how those of you who've gotten far enough for
your cultures' mythologies on naming various deities, spirit types,
monsters, and mythical creatures?

I've been trying to figure out how to go about it for the Saalangal,
and I've looked to Tagalog for inspiration, but not much luck. I
assume originally creature names would usually have some sort of
meaning behind them (such as the recent example here - werewolf), So,
how did you all go about giving names to the various creatures in your
concultures' mythologies?

You can turn away from me
