+ Doesn't the "el" syllable mean something like "God" or "Light"?  (And if the
+ latter, wouldn't that mean that Lucifer's name was anglicised from something
+ else?  What?)

Lucifer is Latinate. "fer" is from "ferro, ferre, tuli, latum", one of the
few weird verbs in Latin (ferre=to bring). He's the Bringer of Light, and is
associated with the dawn. He certainly didn't last long...
