->''"I thought about how Frank Herbert arrived at the name [[Literature/{{Dune}} Arrakis]]. The Fremen are Buddhist Arabs. The Zen-Sunni wanderers. Their language is Arabic. Bi-lal Kaifa, Ilm & Fiqh, Karama & Ijaz, Kitab al-Ibar. Arrakis is meant to have descended from al-Rakis, "The Dancer." So, that's a path right there. Frank Herbert didn't think "What's a bad-ass name?" He thought "Who named this place? What language did they speak?" He further thought "How do planets get their names?" Well, 'planet' means 'wanderer.' Wanderer is Planet in Greek, so Arrakis is Dancer in Arabic. This was a fertile line of thinking."''
