My sister's name is Danica, but I recently discovered it has an association with the Devil. The quote came from

Lucifer is a Latin word meaning "light-bearer" (from lux, lucis, "light", and ferre, "to bear, bring"), a Roman astrological term for the "Morning Star", the planet Venus. The word Lucifer was the direct translation of the Greek eosphorus ("dawn-bearer"; cf. Greek phosphorus, "light-bearer") used by Jerome in the Vulgate, having mythologically the same meaning as Prometheus who brought fire to humanity.

'Zvijezda Danica' is a Slavic phrase for 'morning star'. Also, in Slavic mythology, Danica was the personification of the Morning star, the Slavic equivalent of Venus.
