from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A very white glittering star of the second magnitude, in the left shoulder of Orion.
- n. In ornithology, a genus of humming-birds.
Above the belt, as they should be, are two stars marking the giant's shoulders. Betelgeuse, to the left, is a star of the first magnitude; the other, Bellatrix, is somewhat fainter.
There is a bit of the warrior about her — Bellatrix means warrior. She’s the right-hand Death Eater to Voldemort.
This word translates from the Latin as 'a female warrior.'
