How would it mean "of the devil"? "Ill-fated" seems suitable for the Shakespeare character.
Mona or Dessi could be nice nicknames.

It is unlikely that it is Greek for "of the devil" as Greek theology has no devil - it has a lord of the underworld which, unlike the Christian connection to hell or a place for evildoers after death, the underworld is the place where all souls go after death, good and bad. Therefore the Greeks are unlikely to have a word in connection a Christian spiritual figure.
