    There's a Pike in Seattle, and a Pine next to it (Chris Pine). And a Dorn close to my church.

    That is not the same word spelled various ways, but two different words.

    https://www.thefreedictionary.com/marquis

    Margrave is the English version of the German word markgraf or border count. The French form is Marquis and the English form Marquess.

    Marquee:

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/marquee

    Then there is a Letter of Marque:

    And now we come to Maquis:

    I said out, dammit!
    There's a "Warp Drive" down in South Carolina near where my mother lives. I saw it when I was visiting once, then I could never find it again on other visits, and I can't find it on a map of the area. Either I was hallucinating, or the town changed it.

    Warp Drive is easy to find, just go south on Crusher Ave. and turn east on Picard Lane and you'll run right into it. If you miss the left on Picard stay on Crusher you will wind up on Federation Court.

    There is also Ryker Court, Alexander Court for the son of Worf. Stone Court for the TOS Commodore who held Court Martial for Kirk. I guess you could say for that episode that Kirk was on Stone Court.
