A high-spirited, boisterous or saucy girl.
2.) A bold and carefree girl; a tomboy. The wild child of the family.

Once upon a time the term only applied to rude, ignorant and awkwardly boorish boys. It wasn't until the 17th century when playwright William Wycherley introduced a female character named Mrs. Hoyden in his 1676 comedy, Plain-Dealer.
