Find similar word game

Homonymous are words that are written the same but mean different things. Paronimous sound very similar but mean different things. Do you know any homonymous/paronimous?

I´ll let here a classic:

Ay (expression) -->  Hay (verb) --> Ahí (adverb)

Another:

Azar (noun)= Fate --> Azahar (noun)= Orange blossom

Anyone can guess this next homonymous? 

Cojo/Cojo

Here's one that I know:

Echo / Hecho 

Echo: Siempre echo los papeles a la papelera.

Hecho: El hecho es que hemos solucionado el problema.

I believe cojo has several meanings! First as a swear word, then as a verb, then as a name for someone with a limp. Another good one is:

halla - haya - allá
