In "Jughead" Juliet says that the others speak Latin because it is "the language of the enlightened." The word "enlightened" translates into the Latin word "Illuminati" (plural) or "Illuminatus" (sigular). "The Illuminati" historically refers to what are supposed to be a secret society that are the subject of conspiracy theories (lately, the New World Order - Novus Ordo Seclorum if you look under the pyramid on the back of your dollar bill) and mentioned prominently in such works as (of course) The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson. So, perhaps the authors are making an analogy (or more than an analogy) between Richard Alpert and his crew and the Bavarian Illuminati. Freemasons...The Temple, etc. And why hasn't anyone sat Juliet down and debriefed her completely? I mean, seriously...

In "The Little Prince," we see Ben sitting in a van with the words "Canton-Raimer" on the side. Another Lost acronym? Could be lots of things from "Maniac Terror" to "Erratic Roman."
