The final table with names and monsters  is more a suggestion. You could mix and match first and second names. You could roll monsters twice and mix the result for something weirder. I recommend using this for inspiration and create a unque monster. You could add some Xor Mutations, Lawful Features, Chaos Features, Surgical Modifications, Alchemical mutations, Necroid Abilities etc (some more d100 tables to cover these). Also if making a standard dnd monster, the maker is creating a new version or a new method. The new version frequently has variations from normal.
