Puns are central to spookery: Many famous names & symbols are really secret jokes by the crypto-aristocracy, used as shibboleths for signalling. The public name seems meaningless, but sounds similar to the secret word, usually something about power & finance, or secrecy & deception.
Puns are here tagged with the language where the pun actually works. This is mostly the Semitic languages, as many aristocratic clans originally come from the ancient Fertile Crescent.
