Lucifer

bringing light

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Lucifer

(light-bearer), found in (Isaiah 14:12) coupled with the epithet "son of the morning," clearly signifies a "bright star," and probably what we call the morning star. In this passage it is a symbolical representation of the king of Babylon in his splendor and in his fall. Its application, from St. Jerome downward, to Satan in his fall from heaven arises probably from the fact that the Babylonian empire is in Scripture represented as the type of tyrannical and self idolizing power, and especially connected with the empire of the Evil One in the Apocalypse.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Lucifer

Light-bringer, the Latin name of the morning-star, or "son of the morning." In the figurative language of Scripture, a brilliant star denoted an illustrious prince, Numbers 24:17. Christ was given to men as the "bright and morning Star," Revelation 2:28; 22:16. The word Lucifer is used once only in the English Bible, and then of the king of Babylon, Isaiah 14:12. It is now commonly, though inappropriately, given to the prince of darkness.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Brilliant star, a title given to the king of Babylon (Isaiah 14:12) to denote his glory.
