OE 'goblin men'
The name of the statues on the way from Edoras to Dunharrow, given by the Rohirrim. They were built by the Menof the Mountains during the First Age. The statues represented the ancestors of the Druedain who were persecuted, mistaken for Orcs.
The name contains the Old English word puk for goblin, also seen in the traditional name Puck.
