Maybe a helpful etymological connection: دَفْتَر is related to a Greek word meaning "leather, parchment", from this notebook. The Arabic دفتر still sounds a bit alike to the illness diphteria, borrowed as well from the above Greek word, associated with a sore or "leathery, parched" throat. Maybe this connection makes it easier to remember.
