Croesus' appearance in Punisher I#2 lists him as "Killer" Croesus, suggesting that his last name might actually be Croesus. -Proto-Man

A quick Google search for "Croesus" reveals he was an ancient historical king. I'm not sure why this character used that name. To learn more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croesus
