The name Satan is derived from the Hebrew word for ''adversary.'' The Devil could very well have been taken from the french "d'evil" meaning
"of evil." (It is also interesting how "evil" is "live" spelled backwards.) Lucifer, of course, means "the light bearer" (but that refers to
him before the fall...assuming that they are one and the same; although many Masons will argue that they are different entities).
