Shunning the light (of a creature).
Mid 17th century: from Latin lucifugus (from lux, luc- ‘light’ + fugere ‘to fly’) + -ous.
“We don’t see him during the day time, but he’s in his garden at night. It’s as though he’s lucifugous.”
Rampallion (noun) (rare) (archaic)
A ruffian, a villain, a rascal.
Late 16th century; earliest use found in Thomas Nashe (d. c1601), writer. Origin uncertain. Perhaps from ramp + -allion, perhaps showing alteration of rascallion by association with ramp. Perhaps compare later ramscallion, rapscallion, tatterdemalion.
