More About Demons
Demon names in this section include dozens of demons found in a variety of myths and traditions from around the globe. Demons are common in the mythology of just about every culture on earth and have been since ancient times. Some of the evil names listed here date back many thousands of years and live on in the cultural or religious traditions that still exist to this day.
Demonology is the process by which demon names are classified using modern interpretations of the language of the region where the demon originated. Some are difficult to categorize based on the limited source material, but the following demon names are the commonly-agreed to versions used today.
Many demons are integral characters in various religious creation myths or holy books. For instance, the demon Akatash is a prominent figure in the ancient Iranian myths about Zoroaster or Zarathustra. Akatash was the creator of evil itself and attempts to destroy Zarathustra with the help of other demons.
Evil names of demons range from Banshees and Baal to Wraiths and Zombies. The Banshee was said by the Irish to be the female bringer of death, who unleashes terrible wails and screams when a person is close to death. Gaelic accounts of the Banshee date back to pre-Christian times and sightings have been reported as recently as 1948. The demon Baal was first described by the ancient Phoenicians and later Semitic cultures as one of the chief rulers in hell. Baal was considered by some Christians during the Puritan period in England to be the main assistant to Satan and commander of 66 legions of demons.
Demons' evil names can be found in modern language - the word "Wrath" has possible roots in "wraith," the ancient Scottish word for "ghost." Wraiths were similar to Banshees: when sighted, their appearance was considered an omen of impending death. Several demons have then-evil names starting with "A" which are commonplace in our own time, such as Ariel and Amy (although both were male beings).
A common theme in demonology is the adoption of demons from other cultures. Historical, religious, and cultural traditions led to the swapping and interchange of demons from one culture to the next, after that developing distinct characteristics and legends in context with other mythological figures. For instance, early Judaism borrows extensively from the demons of Persia, Phoenicia, Syria, the Akkadian Empire, and many others. Indeed, the word "demon" itself has evolved over the thousands of years - in the days of Homer; a demon was not necessarily considered an evil name. The Greeks used the word to denote the supernatural and the divine. As it has come down to us, the word has changed meanings substantially, and will surely continue to do so.
In more recent times, demons were usually cast as malevolent beings working to undermine a hero or god. Frequently portrayed as "unclean spirits," demons could possess the body of a victim, either by necessity for survival or to interact with the human world. Although varying across different traditions, typically demons were considered non-divine, non-human entities who were either separable or discarnate souls. Most demons were said not to have inhabited a body.
Christian demonology has a long history dating back centuries. Based on scripture, writers throughout the years have described various spirits or entities who have possessed adults or children and severely affected their behavior. Exorcism is the Church-sanctioned practice of removing the demon from the body and is strictly overseen by the Church hierarchy. Other religious traditions have similar methods by which a demon is expelled from the afflicted person.
