"Cute" in Polish

Is there any good word for "cute", for example, if someone is describing a baby or a baby animal? Can you use "śliczny" in this case?

You can use słodki/słodkie/słodka (m/n/f) and also uroczy/urocze/urocza (m/n/f). These are all singular adjectives.

That's "kind", "nice". Maybe there are some instances of "cute" when it means those things, but that definitely wouldn't be my first thought.

Hi,

Yes, I believe this is correct. I think you can also use "słodki/słodka" :).

In most situations, you can use "fajny" which is "cool" (although it comes from English "fine") Pretty much everything can be "fajny". Practical and heavily overused by native Polish. BTW you can also say: "fajnie!" like: "Fajnie! Idziemy do kina!" ("Cool! We are going to the movies!")

Fajny does not come from English, more likely from German fein. They are cognates though, but don’t overestimate English impact on Polish
