When did this game change name?
When I started playing this game in the 90s, it was called UFO - Enemy Unknown. I've still got an original cd rom of this game, and it says on it 'UFO - Enemy Unknown'. The disk is pretty beat up but thankfully Steam released it.

When did this game become 'UFO Defense'? Is it a US vs Euro thing?

No, it's a confusing thing. The 1994 version is UFO: Enemy Unknown, X-COM: Enemy Unknown and X-COM: UFO Defense. Not confusing enough? In 2012, Firaxis came out with a reboot titled X-COM: Enemy Unknown.

That's as much as I got from the Wikipedia article anyway.

It's like you suggested; a US vs European release.

I think US version is UFO Defense and Europe is Enemy Unknown. Oh, and the reboot's name doesn't have a dash in it, so it's XCOM: Enemy Unknown

This made me remember, that I also had a German version first.
It was not called "Der unbekannte Gegner" iirc, either they kept the english name or it was only UFO.

Anyway, the Floaters were called Treiber, which was a mistranslation, as Treiber means herder or beater (or driver when talking about computers), not someone who floats.

They kept the names of most of the other alien species, like Sektoid, Mutonen etc, but I can't remember how they translated Ethereals...
