I math class the other day, there was a word problem involving a person named, "Eulalia." That was pretty awesome.

And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where Paradise lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking

As mentioned by Killconey. Asmodeus is typically called Asmodai though.

The first part of Dannflor Reguba's name, Dann, is a Hebrew baby name for judge.&n[marten]p; The next part, flor, is Latin for flower.

So is there any relation to Reguba being a "judging flower"? I've started researching other Redwall names, and I will update this thread on what I find soon.

The stars lean down to kiss you, and I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly, but I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I can enlighten you folks on Dryditch Fever. In older times, epidemics of various diseases would often occur in the summertime- often June-September, until frosts started killing the disease germs. These were usually some variation of fever, including malaria and scarlet or yellow fever. For example, yellow fever has symptoms which include fever, chills, sever head and body aches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue and weakness. In late stages, it causes spike fevers, jaundice, and multiple organ failure resulting in death. These are all common to Dryditch Fever. The name, then, would come from its summer occurrence, when dry weather caused the evaporation of water in the ditch. Epidemics were also especially common in times of drought, because there was not enough water to treat sicknesses well. This is a probable additional factor.
And all the bars at which we fret,
That seem to prison and control,
Are but the doors of daring, set
Ajar before the soul.

Say not, "Too poor," but freely give;
Sigh not, "Too weak," but boldly try,
You never can begin to live
Until you dare to die.

Interesting facts there, Wylder! Thank you.

I don't recall anything that might suggest that. It's possible Brian had also made up the name.
I have made the Sword of Martin the Warrior! See it in Art in Metal
