Comments for the name Lucifer

Comments for LUCIFER:

Lucifer was the Roman god of light, he was known to bring light, hence the bringer of light, and to also bring enlightenment. I personally find this to be a beautiful name, despite the bad image given to society by the bible.

I've always liked this name. The history part can be misleading in regards of this name. As many know, it was the name of the first angel in heaven, and the most loved one, but he rebelled and was ejected out of heaven. What many don't know is that in Christian mythology, it is stated that once Lucifer was out of heaven, he lost this name and became Satan. So Satan is no longer called Lucifer, and to call him that is wrong. So, all in all, the name Lucifer has no bad meaning whatsoever. :)

Actually, Lucifer and Satan are the same. So my question is why do they make a point of saying that there is a difference between Satan and the chief angel, when they are one in the same. Also the name Lucifer is yes a beautiful name, in fact Lucifer or Satan rather is actually supposed to be the most beautiful creature ever. So thats why most people have a forboding sense to it plus its past does not help. Overall some of this information is inaccurate.

The actual meaning is "light bearer".

The name Lucifer from the Latin words lux (lux) and fero (to bear). Contrary to popular belief, Lucifer is not the name of the Devil.

Before it became associated with the Christian devil/Satan, Lucifer was a perfectly respectable Roman name. It was used as a translation for Phosphorus, the Greek personification of the morning star.

There's even an early Roman St Lucifer.
