Charles Addams, the creator of The Addams Family, is entirely responsible for this unusual name. Though fabricated by the writer, the word "mortician" can easily be recognized. A mortician handles the body after death for the funereal processes. The root word of "mortician" is "mort", which can be found in many languages in slightly different forms, such as Latin, as the word for "death". This macabre name is not for the faint of heart, but you can still love it for the dreamy character anyways.
