NAME ORIGIN
    Dia is Spanish for "day". This is in reference to the folklore of daylight being harmful to vampires and other undead creatures. The addition of the suffix -ra to Dia denotes that this spell is the second level of the White Magic spell Dia. The -ra suffix is an invention of Square and can be seen in other second level spells such as Blizzara and Thundara.
    In the original NES release, this spell was called Hrm2, an abbreviation for Harm 2. Harm means physical injury or damage. The word comes from the Old English word hearm.
