Which nobody should care about unless they happen to speak latin, and most people don't.
Take most creature names in fantasy settings, find the meaning of the word in the original language from which they came, most likely there will be little or no relation to how the creature is depicted today. e.g if you happened to speak old Irish, you'd have a similar opinion about Banshee (we had that discussion on the forum).
The same problem one can have when watching a drama TV show (CSI and the like) and something is explained to make sense to the common viewer, but in return makes no sense to someone who is actually an expert on the subject (random example: google "Numb3rs' description of IRC"). yes, it's funny, it's strange, but you just learn to live with it.
That connection is common today, but I don't think it was for the original latin word. Either you allow modern interpretations, or you don't.
Broken Spire, in a heartbeat. He doesn't look evil - compare his face to that of IK, he looks more innocent, almost friendly, even. On his lower face you can even spot a smile. Also compare him to Obsidian Golem, his main body is clearly made of the same material. Does Obsidian Golem look daemonic to you?
