About “creational”, the English OLD says: "Of or relating to creation, especially the creation of the world.”

Of the first ten hits on Google Books, seven pertain to the creation of the world, but at least the top 50 Google general hits pertain to software. C.f. Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creational_pattern <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creational_pattern>).
