I thought I would turn this off-list query to me into an on-list post.
> Isn't her [Deiphobe] name's etymolgy close to "the one afraid of god"?
I first replied with:
I don't think so. You may be right with "phobe" but the "dei"
that you link to "god" is Latin. Greek is something like "theo."
I got curious enough to web search some. I found a web page by
Pat Sloane that did say something similar to "the one afraid of god"
but I kept looking.
shows some names starting with "Dei" and associated with "dread."
That makes makes me believe that Deiphobe means 'one who drives away fear'
as stated on this webpage:
