Sprites were a mythological race of fairies or fairy-like creatures. They were also believed to be similar to elves. William Shakespeare even had a story about a Sprite.
Whether they truly existed or not is merely legend, however Water Sprites were real, and may have been the origin of the legend, however they were actually a race of imps from the 5th Dimension.
The Sprite was a submarine that was named after these legendary creatures.
