The killing curse in Harry Potter "Avada Kedavra," kind of sounds like a distorted "Abra Ca Dabra", amirite?

jk rowling connected all of the spells with latin, so they actually have a meaning instead of just being random letters put together.

Abra Ca Dabra is a kind of flub of the Hebrew Avadakedavra, which meant something along the lines of "To make death" Avada Kedavra is the death spell. Connection made?

Knockturn Alley = nocturnally.

Most of the spells are like that: Lumos sounds like "illuminate", "wingardium leviosa" has "wings" and "levitate", "imperio" is like "imperial" or "imperialism", "expelliarmus" is like "expel arms (weapon)", "stupefy" is an English verb meaning "to stun", "aguamenti" makes water, "evanesco" is like "evanescent", which means quickly fading, and there are so many more.

Bellatrix means 'female/beautiful warrior,' fitting for the only woman Death Eater.

Plus Narcissa was supposedly prettier. Bellatrix apparently looked like a crack addict.

Actually, Bellatrix was also supposed to be beautiful until she was imprisoned in Azkaban.

Really? I would assume that she would start getting ugly when she started killing and torturing, and then become crazy-looking after Azkaban.

Narcissa isn't a Death Eater, just the wife of one. Narcissa=narcissistic, caring almost only about appearances. Fair for the supposed prettiest of the Black sisters and the one married to Lucius.

It is the original of abracadabra, which means "let the thing be destroyed". Traditionally, it was thought to heal(with the "thing" being an illness), but she used it with the "thing" being the person in front of you, making it a killing curse. She says that at some point in an interview.

Congratulations for pointing out now what most of us figured out 10+ years ago.

It's actually a corruption of the Spanish phrase "habra un cadaver" which means "there will be a corpse".
