Why was it called Colosseum?

The Colosseum was originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, and it was built between 70 and 80 AD by the Roman Emperor Vespasian and his son Titus. It was built to host gladiatorial games and other public events, and its name was derived from the Latin word for "giant," which is "colosseus."
