Fun with words in eastern Europe

Inspired by a recent trip to Eastern Europe I would like to point out the nice, but sadly expired, pun in that the capital of the former communist dictatorship of Romania is called "Book/Arrest".
And a pun near miss: Why on earth didn't the Hungarians call they airline MagLev instead of just Malev?
