Thank you for your point of view, that thought crossed my mind too, and might be so.
But the fact that Emond is one letter rotation from dEmon, is quite the coincidence.
The fact is also, that just south of Emond's Field lies Jehennah, which is one letter from Gehennah, or Hell.
So we have Demon's Field and Gehennah (Hell).
I don't know what the odds that a person can randomly come up with such names (or close anagram), so close to each other, just by coincidence, but it makes me, a believer of Jesus Christ, not want to continue my reread of the series...
I'll just quote some Scripture if that's ok here:
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
"For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open." Luke 8:17
Have a lovely day,
