Diabolic Acid and other Chemical Structures

What do Diabolic Acid, Moronic Acid, Traumatic Acid,  Draculin, Spamol and Windowpane have in common? 

They are all the names of real chemical compounds! For example:

Diabolic Acid

Diabolic acids are actually a class of compounds where the m and n chains can have different lengths and can contain unsaturation. They were named after the Greek diabollo, meaning to mislead, since they were particularly difficult to isolate using standard gas chromatography techniques. One of the inventors, Prof Klein, also thought that they had 'horns like the devil'.
