Maybe it's because I was in school for 23 consecutive years, and therefore am not smart enough to get some of those puns, but I don't see how most of those those are puns. They are forms of legal terms, sure. But outside Bearister and Tsuyou, none of those names seem to involve any wit in terms of the class/race combo.

How about Afflicdavit for a lock

Not sure I understand how Patent is a pun. Or whether many of them are puns as opposed to phonetic spellings. Are you being ironic?

A patent troll is a person who patents inventions not to use but to sue other people for using.Habeas corpus is a legal term regarding warrants. Haybeus the corpse is a forsaken.Barrister is a British term for lawyer. Bearister is a tank.A rainmaker is the person at a firm who brings in the big cases and valuable clients. Rainemaker is a resto shaman.Bona fide is Latin for "good faith." Bonafiday is a discipline priest.Pro bono is Latin for "for the good." Probono is a paladin.And I just might roll Aflictdavit now ...
