<upd_detl>Ref has "an eccentric [a strange, a spacey] girl; Little Miss Spacey." I think "eccentric girl" would be a good gloss. "slightly mysterious or hard-to-understand person" is really a longer way of saying that. Both refs state it is a woman. The fact that it sometimes used to apply to a male doesn't really change the base meaning.</upd_detl>

<upd_detl>Well, all I can refer to is a native speaker (who I just asked 
whether it can be used for guys, and she gave me an 
unconditional "yes").</upd_detl>
