Don't you get he is joking? By the way... Beyond movies... Have you read "Demian" by Herman Hesse? That's another source from which to reinterpret Demian and Damian and etc. Personally I would combine etymologies and understand those names as "tamed distribuiter" or "distribiuting tamer" (Sorry for missepllings/typos, I'm in a hurry)... Of course whether the name brings evil or not with it... I do understand that it was just another of christianity's insults to non-christian beliefs (like in "beel zebub") for a "daimon" was neither, nor good nor evil, the "eudemon" was good the "cacodemon" was evil ("caco" like in "cacophony" "horrible strong sound" means "evil" and/or "bad"; "eu" like in "eucharyst", "eucharyot", "evander" and "evangelium" means "good"), "daimons" were just a different race, above humankind, below gods and demigods, slightly above, slightly below and/or in tie with human spirits... Like with humans they could be evil or good or neither... Furthermore... Even gods where subject to the same "freedom of alignment"...
