https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_true_homonyms

Homonyms are words that are both spelled and pronounced the same as
each other, yet have different meanings. The category is somewhat
subjective, because words sometimes have related, only very slightly
different, meanings. Some authors use the term more broadly, to refer
to homographs (words spelled the same as each other but pronounced
differently) or homophones (words spelled differently but pronounced
the same).

(to list a few :-)
