    Wold is an Old English term for a forest or an area of woodland on high ground; it is cognate with the Dutch word woud and with the German wordWald, as well as low German Wohld, all meaning forest. It became weald in West Saxon and Kentish.

    Wikipedia:-

    Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. It may be altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser.

    The word is derived from the verb to bespeak, meaning to "speak for something". The particular meaning of the verb form is first cited from 1583 and given in the Oxford English Dictionary to speak for, to arrange for, engage beforehand: to ‘order’ (goods)”. The adjective "bespoken" means “ordered, commissioned, arranged for” and is first cited from 1607.

    The term is generally more prevalent in British English; for example, "bespoke jewellery" American English ends to use the word "custom" instead, as in "custom car", "custom motorcycle", etc. Nevertheless, "bespoke" has seen increased usage in American English during the 21st century, particularly with the phrase "bespoke suit."

    :(

    You ruin a good play on words by making the meaning explicit.
