Wight = Olento
Wraith = Haamu (yes, it means exactly the same as Spectre)

I suppose Lich is just a Lich as it is a fantasy title for an undead mage.

Squire can also mean Aseenkantaja...

This is quite interesting Do you have a lot of Peasants up there in Norway?

Sadly there is no other meaning for Wight. In English it doesn't sound stupid because it is almost the same with Wraith, but in Finnish...lol

Haven in Hebrew.

Peastant-Ikar
Archer-Kashat
Footman-Hmmm... There's no exact translation of that.
Griffin-As it is in English.
Priest-Cohen/Comer
Cavalier-Parash
Angel-Mala'h.

Remember that the Hebrew is the first language in the world.
So all those English names are translations from Hebrew. ><

Lich is just Lichi in finnish lanquage. The creature is from D&D and it's roots are from a Mummy (Muumio).

Wraith is a hard one. Grim Reaper (Viikatemies) would be good but thats not it's name in the game. In Lotr there where also Wraiths and they look mutch like H5 Wights. These Ringwraiths where refered as Ghosts (Aaveiksi). So my conclusion is that Wright/Wraith finnish name is Aave.
