The Wart was called the Wart because it more or less rhymed with Art, which was short for his real name. Kay had given him the nickname.
Kay was not called anything but Kay, as he was too dignified to have a nickname and would have flown into a passion if anybody had tried to give him one. The governess had red hair and some mysterious wound from which she derived a lot of prestige by showing it to all the women of the castle, behind closed doors. It was believed to be where she sat down, and to have been caused by sitting on some armour at a picnic by mistake. They found out afterwards that she had been in a lunatic hospital for three years.
