Official or conjectural name[edit]

Where does "Butababi" comes from? Is it japanese? Same question for "Gliding Pig"? Is it an official english name? If so, we should move the article to "Gliding Pig" and note its official japanese name "Butababi".

The name "Butababi" comes from official Japanese game guides. These were posted on a Super Mario dictionary site, which is where users obtained the names and used on the articles. The term "Gliding Pig" comes from an English descriptor seen here. The Japanese name is considered more official, so it should remain at the "Butatabi" title.
