That claim seems to come from American folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland's 1899 work Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches, So I would say No. Most religions claim Lucifer/Satan* had no daughter. Some might give credence to a Lilith figure, however this "Aradia" being such only came from Godfrey's book as it seems. *Either or, neither had daughters, and in which ones there are theories "Aradia" still, only came from a book written in 1899.

No and you need to better understand what the Book of Aradia is, written by self-styled folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland. I recommend an article that might still be available on the Web by anthropologist and neopagan spokesperson Prof Sabina Magliocco who wrote an essay about Aradia and her probably real origins and who did anthropologic work on magic and witchcraft in rural Italy. Lucifer in ancient times was a reference to the goddess Venus. The stregona who supplied Leland with the story of Aradia was likely making comments regarding anticlericalism, though, in her largely uncorroborated story. Most Italian traditionalists do not buy into it.
