Apparently they didn't.  At least, not in the version I have.

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

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.  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.

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.

True worth is in being, not seeming-
In doing, each day that goes by,
Some little good- not in dreaming
Of great things to do by and by.
For whatever men say in their blindness
And spite of the fancies of youth,
There's nothing so kingly as kindness
And nothing so royal as truth.

Courage: not only the willingness to die manfully, but also the determination to live decently.
It is not the armor but the heart that makes a man a knight

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.
