Spirits that crossed my mind to evoke

I’m looking through Waite’s The Book of Ceremonial Magic, in the section of talismans.

I originally was thinking of copying the talisman and ring seals onto small pieces of wood by hand. I actually did the fifth talisman per the picture.

As I’m looking at the eleventh one (which will be a bitch to draw all detail with pen in hand and a nickel sized magnifying glass in the other), I’m reading the description and start thinking, who are these names mentioned?

So, the idea is now, I wonder if the names for orations, pentacles, talismans, or enochian and othet system spirits if the letters, can be used to bring forth those named spirits through evocation - and, are they safe to do so without circle and triangle with old school rules?

Reason why … It may be a chained/bound anarchistic, chaotic servitor, you know? Or from another plane/angle/dimension.
Evoking ALL the names from these old grimoires, using the pentacle or talisman like a sigil, that is the question…

Example … The twelfth talisman from the Black Pullet, has names to punish enemies.

Xatros is one name I could not find, except for an allegation that they are fire spirits.

Nifer is one of the names, and this was found in Wikipedia:
Cynan Nant Nyfer (“Cynan of the Nevern Valley”; fl. 865[1]) was a 9th-century Welsh warrior whose death was recorded by most of the surviving Welsh histories.[1][2][3][4] He was credited with many victories against the Saxons.[5] Among the variations of his name was Cynan Nawdd Nifer (“Cynan, Protection of Many”).[4]

Ninth century Wales … Wonder what year and country the Black Pullet originated.
According to Wikipedia,
The Black Pullet (La poule noire) is a grimoire that proposes to teach the “science of magical talismans and rings”, including the art of necromancy and Kabbalah. It is believed to have been written in the 18th century[1] by an anonymous French officer who served in Napoleon’s army. The text takes the form of a narrative centering on the French officer during the Egyptian expedition led by Napoleon (referred to here as the “genius”) when his unit is suddenly attacked by Arab soldiers (Bedouins). The French officer manages to escape the attack, but is the only survivor. An old Turkish man appears suddenly from the pyramids and takes the French officer into a secret apartment within one of the pyramids. He nurses him back to health whilst sharing with him the magical teachings from ancient manuscripts that escaped the “burning of Ptolemy’s library”.

So I guess that was speculation.

One of the fifth is Noctar, which according to Wikipedia, is a moth.

I wonder what these Egyptian words mean, and if they’re related to constellations or alchemy, as the signs bordering are Scorpio, Libra, Mars or Sagittarius, and Taurus or Capricorn. On the lower portion it could be Leo. The characters to engrave on the ring appear to me to be alchemical symbols.

However, they don’t seem all Egyptian for two reasons, both centered to the same region…
#19 has as one of the words OSTHARIMAN, which is interesting with the first four letters removed.
A page or two forward, Waite goes into the Black Hen. The first was owned by the father of Zoroaster.
So maybe any of the magic words mean something, maybe not. Interesting.

The earth correspondences make sense, I can see sorrow as Tav is considered the Gates of Tears. Ten of Wands crossing is interesting in terms of NT Revelation, Knight of Wands is interesting as Sandalphon the Lesser Prince of the Countenance, Metatron the Greater.
Pleased with the reading.
