    In British English, we simply call it 'goat'. In other parts of world, it may be called 'mutton', a word we use in BrE only for sheep meat.

    Yes. Also one of my alien friend told me that it is called as "goat meat".

    He sounds like something from outer space. If your friend is not from your country, we'd normally say which country he came from - One of my American.British/Indian friends ...

    No problem. 'Alien' in the sense of a person from another country is a perfectly acceptable word in legal contexts, but we rarely use it in everyday language.

    In another forum, chevon and cabrito are given as alternatives, though not recommended.

    (It's worth reading post 4 in that thread, and its follow-up in post 9, which I'm still laughing about.)
