I don't want to be obnoxious, but could you accept traditional spellings? I grew up on Irish folklore, and so for me leipreachán and bean sí come to mind before the anglicized spellings. I don't have this problem with many other mythologies, but I'm sure other quiz-takers do, and it would really us help if you could accommodate that.
