I've always liked the word 'ratiocination' - it means 'the process of exact thinking'. Oh, also 'viridescent' - 'greenish or becoming green'. And 'polychromatic' - 'of two or more or of varying colours; multicoloured'. 'Iridescent' sounds pretty - 'showing luminous colours that seem to change when seen from different angles'. 'Coruscating' is also nice - 'flashing; sparkling', or 'brilliant or striking in content or style', or 'severely critical; scathing'. Oh, 'defenestration' is fun - 'the action of throwing someone out of a window'

Those are the ones I can remember from the top of my head ^^

Political defenestration is a thing. I originally interpreted it literally, but supposedly in that context it just means removal from power.

'Peregrination' - essentially means a long journey. Kind of like a peregrine falcon

Gubernatorial - Related to a position of governance. I like the fact that the phonetics are so screwed up compared to its root word.

Also: It provides some logical basis for saying gubernator, rather than governor. I still haven't decided whether that is disgusting or not.
