I believe, in his brilliant understanding of gender politics, that Shakespeare pulled out his French dictionary and chose- des:of or from, and daemon: evil spirit from within(not to be confused with diable:evil spirit from hell).This would perfectly describe jealousy and man's unfortunate obsession with controlling women.
