What of this two sentences is better and doesn't sound weird?

  1. "Transverse foramen", just like its name, says that the foramen moving across this bone.

  2. "Transverses foramen", its name lives up to his name, and says that the foramen moving across this bone.

If you have a better option, please, kindly let me know it.

    Neither one. 1) is incomplete. 2) needs a conjunction between "foramen" and "its". – user3169 Oct 31 '15 at 18:38
  • Can you help me please, because I don't know what you mean. Do you mean to the word "and" for example? – Judicious Allure Oct 31 '15 at 18:49

    I think the term should be "Transverse foramen" (without s on tranverse) which is a part of a bone in the spine. – MaxW Oct 31 '15 at 19:02
  • You're right. I edited it. Thank you for your comment. – Judicious Allure Oct 31 '15 at 21:51

  1. "Transverses foramen", just like its name implies, says that the foramen moves across this bone.

and

  1. "Transverses foramen" lives up to its name, and says that the foramen moves across this bone.

In both, the phrase "says that the foramen moving across this bone" needs a verb.

In 1. I added implies, this is an improvement but could be left out.

And in 2, the first comma is not needed so I would just remove it.
