I need some English to Ancient Greek translations?

So I'm writing this story, and it's kind of medieval, and I need meaningful names for places and people. I'd like, please, the ancient Greek translations of the following words:

- wonder, noun (as in marvel)

- light, noun (as in glowing light, not weightless light haha)

- darkness and all possible synonyms

- big, huge, vast, whatever evokes BIGNESS

- creation

- pearl

- forest or trees, or greenery

- mountain, hill, basically like an elevated area

- castle

- land, territory...

- desert

- ship

I'd be really grateful if you could give at least five of those! Thanks!
