Trivia Edit

  • Her name in Japanese is a pun on "魔法無" (Mahou mu), meaning "Without magic". This is an early indication that she is not actually a witch.
  • Her name in English was derived from three separate Italian words.
    • Espella is derived from the verb "espellere", meaning "to expel". It could also be a pun on the word spell, from magic spells.
    • Canta is derived from "cantare", meaning "to sing".
    • Bella is Italian for "beauty".
    • It is also a reference to the name of Bezella, which as later revealed Espella believes possesses her and forces her to work sorcerous havoc.
  • Her name in other languages seems to always be derived from a different language as well:
    • Her German last name "Narrateur" is French for (Story)teller.
    • Her Spanish last name "Fable" is French/English for a literary genre that denotes a fictitious story.
    • Her French last name "Novella" is Italian/English for a short story that is shorter than a novel.
    • Her Italian last name "Minstrel" is English for a medieval entertainer (bard). They were known for telling stories.
    • Her Dutch last name is the same as in English (see above).
