An aquifer is an underground water layer, I don't think it has anything to do with a bear.

Also, isn't Kalmar something to do with squid?
ALAN: Badgering? I never mentioned
a badger. I'm talking about kitty
kats.

Fero, ferre is a verb to bear, to carry it is corrected now.
http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=aquifer
It also appears in:
transfer (Lat. trans -across + ferre -to bear, to carry)
confer (Lat. con-, com- together, cum -with + ferre -to bear, to carry) word conference is also derived from it.
conifer (Lat. conus -cone + ferre -to bear, to carry)
cruciferous (Lat. crux, crucis -cross + ferre -to bear, to carry)
differ, different (Lat. dis -apart + ferre -to bear, to carry) Lat. differre -set apart, put off, delay
offer (Lat. ob -to, in front, against + ferre -to bear, to carry)
reference (Lat. re -back, again + ferre -to bear, to carry)
suffer (Lat. sub -under + ferre -to bear, to carry) Lat. sufferre -to bear, undergo, endure
In Latin in front of f dis- assimilates into dif-, ob- into of-, sub- into suf-

Kalmar is probably from Spanish calmar -to calm down, to calm, to subside with meaning of pacifier.

Arctura last boss in the Way is probably named after Arcturus brightest star in constellation Boötes

It is derived from Ancient Greek name Αρκτουρος (arktouros) αρκτος (arktos) -bear + ουρος (ouros) -guard in reference to its proximity to Ursa Major and Ursa Minor (Lat. ursa -female bear, ursus -bear).
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Arcturus

Zedicus Lat. sedere -to sit + dicere -to say, to tell or dicare -to dedicate (sits talking or sits dedicated) or sedere -to sit + ic -of, related to
Landorin could also be from land + horror + in -of, related to
