    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.
