Comments for PUCK:

My mother sometimes calls me this as a nickname. I had no idea it was actually a name. I would never give this as a name to a child because I think it sounds a bit childish but I like the meaning of devil. :P

Puck was the mischivious fairy who caused all the trouble in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

The meaning is nothing to be desired, but I do so love the character. I'd consider this as a middle name.

The only reason I like this name is because I love hockey.

Puca is not in fact Old English. It comes from an Irish word, meaning a type of faery- a generally malevolent, sometimes harmless faery that often took the form of a spectral horse.

This name is also used in The Netherlands, and would certainly be found in the top 1000 of names of all ages. The name is unisex in the country, but is most often found on females. [noted -ed]

This name is kinda cool and all, but in America I think the kid would be teased about the whole "hockey puck" thing. I can also think of a rhyme someone might use. But I will say that this name is cool!

Uh... honestly, I hope no native English speaker is named this. Because if you change the 'p' to an 'f', you get one of the most vulgar words in the English language, which is so notorious in global pop culture (given the English language's pervasiveness) that I'm sure non-Anglophones are aware of it as well. I'm honestly surprised at the name's apparent popularity in the Netherlands. I hope the bearers don't run into any problems because of their name.
