    Aquae Sucellus - the Waters of Sucellus
    Ars Moriendi - the Art of Dying
    Basium - Kiss (needs more makeup ;) )
    Caminus Aureus - the Golden Fireplace
    The Nexus - something tying things together

    Catacomb Libralus - pseudolatin - Catacumbae Librarii would mean catacombs of books

    Heh, thats tough, I guess many do.
    Sphener on top of my head, though I have no idea what it means.
    Stygian Guard, Stygian is some underworld place in Roman (Or maybe Greek Mythology?)
    I guess many leader names.
    Aquae Suceluss
    Malevolent Designs, Celerity and Omniscience techs
    Probably may GP's

    Eh i didn't even think of this many. Really i meant the ones that wouldn't mean anything directly in English.
    Words like Stygian and Celerity are really words used in English.

    So like Caminus Aureas, Catacomb Libralus, Ars Moriendi, and Aque Succullus.
    but there is still at least one more genuine latin name. (with two words)

    Kudos to you guys for getting all of those though, i guess i asked my question too broadly. (again)

    In fact, celerity is english, "celeritas" would be a latin word. There are some with the same spelling - asylum, succubus, ...

    Moreover, there are many greek (eidolon, necronomicon, ...), even an egyptian - sidar.

    I can't find the last one :(

    His turn, I'd say, I didn't even see his post above mine cause I had probs with PC before I posted and later just retyped it. Had I seen it I wouldn't post mine :p

    That's from AoI? I haven't had time yet to play it.

    BTW I think it should be Letum Frigidum, if it means a cold ruin.

    I enjoy the way FfH2 uses various mythologies and religions because I have languages as a hobby. It shows that Kael has had a lot of time to improve his D&D campaigns.

    The question (quite easy):
    There is one mythology that is a dominant source of angel's names (13 of 21, if i'm correct), which one is it?
    You can name other sources as a bonus.

    Jewish?
    Others are Norse, Greek and Roman, but I think old Christian- Jewish was most influential one.

    Hmm, well there's Sirona... Positively Celtic, not so sure shes an angel.

    Edited: Angel of Wisdom, Spirit Mana, "Shrine of Sirona". I guess that's her. :)
