bethlena Says:


I am personally not a fan of this name, it is far too close to the word bane. "The noun bane refers to anything that is a cause of harm, ruin, or death. But we often use it for things that aren't that bad, just feel like it. You might say mosquitoes are the bane of your existence. The now obsolete meaning of "deadly poison" is seen in the names of poisonous plants such as wolfsbane and henbane."
