The common name suffixes Field / Feld / Veld / Velt, which all mean “field”, are perhaps supposed to pun with English / Latin “veiled” for the spooks. This pun doesn’t work with Semitic languages. But “Field” names only appeared when Britain had already displaced the Fertile Crescent as the world government’s headquarters, so it’s certainly possible.
