A euphemism is a mild, indirect, or vague term substituting for a harsher, blunter, or more offensive term.

It may also substitute a description of something or someone to avoid revealing secret, holy, or sacred names to the uninitiated, or to obscure the identity of the subject of a conversation from potential eavesdroppers. Some euphemisms are intended to amuse.
