spook names

20 entries

Spook aristocrats seem to have a special preference for some names, even though these names are mundane and also used by commoners. The reason is that these names have a second meaning, as punny transcriptions & translations for ancient governing titles, e.g. English Milk for Hebrew Melek meaning “governor”, or English Rice for Arabic Raees meaning “chief”. As names have no context, much of this is guesswork.
