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 or is written 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.

Please read the introduction to puns. They’re based on consonantal script and don’t work exactly like English puns!
