Gender: M Origin of Puck: Literary name

Puck was Shakespeare's mischievous pixie whose only known real-life incarnation was the insufferable neohippie on an early season of MTV's "Real World." Now, though, the attractive bad boy character on "GLEE" is giving Puck new possibilities, at least as a nickname.
