Another word for gremlin?

Question:Hi, I'm writing my friend a childrens book about her (I do this for all my friends on their birthdays), and her name is Gordana. Now, I want the book to illustrate her cheeky side. So it's going to be called Gordana and her Gremlin. Only gremlin is the wrong word. It has to begin with G. And to describe a impish creature that is her alter-ego. (She's butter-wouldn't-melt but she loves to play practical jokes.)

Any ideas? Thanks :-)

What a fun gift idea!

If you have to use a word that is already established, I think I like "ghoulie" best. But, since this is a children's book have you thought of making up your own word for this alter-ego character? Kid's love silly things like that. After all, it is YOUR story. And, if you want to make up your own word to describe your impish character, who's gonna stop you?! As long as it communicates the idea you want to portray, I say have some fund and do it your way.

Some suggestions for your own words for this character:

Grinnling
Grinsister
Grinmonk
Grinster
Goferver
Gomerry
Goosuzie
Goofloozie
Gypsister
Glibsister
Gay Mamie
Gojokester
Gloobdoody

Try some for yourself. It was fun! Thanks
