Heck, compared to other english reporting names ("Foxbat", anyone? Or "Fulcrum"?), Atrox sounds just fierce enough to invoke "Meow-meooo-merarr"...

(sorry if I inadvertently offended any Caitians with my rough-random typing of their language...)
Hm, I like that. Going one step further, maybe "atrox" is just the Latin translation of the original Caitian name...
