Which character from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream has the same name as a moon of the planet Uranus?
What do you think?

If I remember correctly around 20 of Uranus' 27 or 28 "named" moons were named after Shakespeare characters. "Titania" and "Puck" are the only ones I recall.
As for what I think, it just goes to show how deeply ingrained Shakespeare once was in our academic community, and not just among English-speaking countries. Although generally seen as being part of the "liberal arts" Shakespeare references pop up across the sciences as well.

That's too easy. Bottom. I jest, It's Puck.
