** Most likely, it's Rowling playing along with how RealLife American and British slang terms tend to be very, very different.

** [[spoiler]] Adding to my original comment about Grindelwald not thinking that he was defeated, many have commented that Grindelwald used wandless magic for the most part because of the likely chance that Graves's wand did not switch his allegience to him. Tina confiscated Graves's wand from Grindelwald. Do we know the rules of what happens when a witch or wizard is disarmed when not using their personal wands? Would the Elder Wand consider that as a defeat? Probably not. It's also very likely that Grindelwald has the Elder Wand hidden somewhere on his person, so he's not truly disarmed/defeated and likely used it to break out of prison/custody. Even if he didn't have the Elder Wand in person, there's still a chance that he kept his old wand and likewise used that to escape.

** Chopstick, piece of dowel, drumstick for a toy xylophone, who knows? It's only "a toy" because she uses it as a plaything.

** There are RealLife publishing firms with names like Serpent's Tail, Viking, and Arrow. Being named after unpopular reptiles, violent sea-raiders, or lethal weapons hasn't put them out of business.

** He could always claim they were an inheritance, or antiques he'd found in the attic or something. They're a bank, not the police; even if he doesn't have proof of provenance for the silver eggshells, they're clearly valuable and if he stole them it's not the bank's job to investigate that.

** Jacob could always just show them the note that was left inside the case - there's no evidence of any wrongdoing on his part, so the bank has no reason not to accept it. As for your second question, I don''t think they'd care. If Jacob wants to open a bakery and he has collateral to cover the bank, they have neither the right nor any reason to question him on his choices.

** So why doesn't he simply carry his magical suitcase inside another (non-magical) suitcase, so it can't open?

** Also, it's since been revealed that Leta Lestrange was the one responsible for said endangerment of student life, and Newt chose to take the fall for her. (Much like Hagrid did for Tom, albeit less willingly.) It could be that somewhere down the line, the truth is brought to light and thus restores Newt's reputation.
