Pinkies: pigs or wild boars.
Imps: lizardmen or gypsies.
Cacodemon: Ευχούληδες (ehf-hoo-lee-dehs), the Greek name for "Wish Trolls". Don't even ask.
Archvile: Anti-Christs. I really thought they were meant to be evil clones/mockeries of Jesus Christ.
Lost Souls: flying whores/cursing ravens. The former, for obvious reasons. The latter, because their sound reminded me of a raven's crow.

some that I've assigned while doing FDAs:

revenants: missiliers
imps: long lobbers
specters: shadow demons
demons: flesh mongers

I call icon of sin 'goatface' but I think that's pretty standard fare.

I sometimes call cacodemons monstrosites.

When I was much younger, I used to refer to lost souls as "Haa Things" in reference to the noise they made

Also, Demons were, and to some extent still are, called "pink nasties"

A complete Phobus listing of names for in-game characters:

Pistollers
Shotgunners
Imps
Pigs
Spectres
Chaingunners
Skulls
Cacos
Revenants
Pain Elementals
Hell Knights; Goats*
Barons; Goats*
Arachs; Spiders**
Mancs
Archies
Spiderdemons; Spiders**
Cybs; Cybies
Nazis
(sigh)FuckingMAP30s...
Doomguy

*Usually for mixed groups, as they pose an equal lack of threat and just require identifying and sinking ammo into
**The family resemblance means you get groupings like in MAP28 and MAP23, so generally it's "kill the spiders" or "let the spiders fight it out amongst themselves"

Creative, I know, but I only really talk about Doom to people who already know it and have mapped for it at some point... Usually playing co-op with my brother.

My dad was calling cyberdemon "galactus" (because it's as big as galaxy). We were calling demons "grunters" and cacodemons "bearballs". I've translated it pretty loosely, since these names were really abstractive. Original names were "galaktus(y)", "chrumpak(i)", "miśkuła/miśkuły" and "pfarpfun(y)". The last one were used for chaingunner/chaingunners and just meant absolutely nothing at all. Oh well, I was about 4 years old back then.

Nothing too different to the default names really. Usually for the purpose of co-op/survival games, simpler or clearer terms are used, but it's really nothing imaginative. In some sort of rough order equal to the endcast:

Zombieman, Shotgun Guy, Heavy Weapon Dude: Zombies
Imp: Imp
Demon: Pig*
Spectre: Spectre
Lost Souls: Souls**
Cacodemon: Caco
Hellknight: Knight
Baron Of Hell: Baron
Arachnotron: Arach
Pain Elemental: PE
Revenant: Rev
Mancubus: Manc
Arch-Vile: Vile***
Spider Mastermind: Spider
Cyberdemon: Cyb
Icon Of Sin: IOS
Wolfenstein SS: SS


* due to the snorting sounds, and mainly for the purpose of not sounding vague during co-op ("What's behind the door?" "Demons" "...yes we know that, what sort of demons?").

** They're not at all lost when they're screaming toward your fucking face, they know exactly where they're going.

*** Why not 'Arch'? Because that's the name of one of our regular players. And we could also be referring to map geometry -- it's all fun and games until someone's confused and toasted by a Vile because they were looking for a curved ceiling.
