Why the new class is called arcanist?

When i look through his skills, he looks more like daedric worshiper rather then student of the arcane.
For me, arcanist would look should be either a renown member of mages guild or someone like imperial battlemage.
I know there is probably a lore explanation for all of this but wouldn't name him a master of arcane arts rather a master of deadric magic.

    I feel like the proper name would have been "arcanAist", as in, "ist of arcana". but arguing about english is like arguing about the weather: it isn't gonna listen. :)

    An Arcanist is both. While some worshippers are bestowed magic for their worship, Hermaeus Mora is the god of knowledge. I’m sure every Arcanist is studying hard.

    Arcane means known or knowable to only a few people. Hermaeus Mora is the patron of hidden knowledge seekers. And arcanists don't necessarily have to serve or deal with Hermaeus Mora or his minions to become arcanists.

    I expect they went with arcanist because 'green-beam-booky-dude' didn't scan as well with the marketing focus groups.
