I would suggest several entries. (In no way do these suggest my own sensitivities. But I rarely write something that only I will read.)

terminate
abort
invalid
parent/child
orphan/widow
master/slave
kill
hit
etc.

On a lighter note: when I am instructed by a manual to "Depress the Enter key," I've taken to looking at it and saying, "You're so ugly you could back up a train."
