You can also translate "pretty" as "гарна (harna)" or "вродлива (vrodlyva)", these are synonyms (the last one especially pertaining to woman's beauty).

Yes, that's one of the amazing things about Ukrainian. There are many words for everything due to the large amount of Russian , Polish and foreign influenced dialects!

There's not much of Russian influence on Ukrainian if you disregard суржик (mixing Ukrainian grammar with Russian vocabulary). I agree with polish, german and latin influences though. We still speak the language defined by Котляревський in 1798: http://www.ukrlib.com.ua/books/printit.php?tid=1052.
