Spooks like the name suffix -Man / -Mann. Sometimes it’s even used as a name by itself, as in grand-merchant “philanthropist” Thomas Mann, or the Isle of Man. Of course, it just means “man” and is a very common suffix, used by countless regular people. Still, it’s also a translation of Adam, the first “man”, whose name puns with “likeness” & “disguise”. So even such normal names may be picked by spooks for traces of spookiness.
