From Merriam-Webster Online:
Etymology: Middle French, from Old Italian naccara drum, nacre, from Arabic naqqArah drum
- na·cre·ous adjective
Etymology: Icelandic jökulhlaup
: a flood created when a body of water held by a glacial dam breaks through the confining walls
From Rei Nakazawa, Magic creative text writer:
Function: proper noun
Etymology: This sly, sinister character's name is a fusion of two pieces: aqua, which means water, and loquacious, which means "talkative." Since Laquatus is an underwater being who uses a lot of talk to get what he wants, this name describes him quite well.
