Awesome isn’t anymore. It’s overused, everybody knows it, as of today the first result from Google for Awesome is the Urban dictionary’s definition:
An overused adjective intended to denote something as “cool” or “great” but instead winds up meaning “lame.”
Instead of awesome, use great: Alexander the Great is better than Alexander the Awesome. The worst with the overuse of the word awesome everywhere: it’s almost always used inappropriately. It comes from awe: a feeling of fear and wonder.
