called "death eaters?"


I always thought that, with them being Voldemort's groupies and
everything:

(1) they kind of "feed" on death, despair, fear and terrorism;

(2) "death eater" might also mean someone who defeats death, which
was, of course, Voldemorts ultimate goal.

The name probably came from either Voldemort (which might lead to n.
2) or the general population which started calling them that out of
fear (which brings us to meaning 1) as they named Voldemort You-Know-
Whom, Harry The Bow Who Lived and so on...
