luc = light
fer = bear, carry, as in transfer, offer, refer.
In the Bible it refers to the planet Venus which often appears just
before the sun rises, but it is a metaphor for some Eastern monarch,
of Persia iirc.
How it got rephrased as "the devil" I don't remember.
NOTE..this is somewhat off topic for this group, but since this thread began
off topic and has veered badly out of control since then anyway...
More than you probably want to know about the name Lucifer and related
topics is found at
