Pomidor - Tomato (intimate saying)


standardissue 1 | 1
27 Apr 2011 #1
Hello,

I have a Polish friend who is always referred to by her intimates in Polish as "cute little tomato" (in translation). I am trying to surprise her with something and want to be able to use the same nickname, but I am a little lost. I know that the Polish word for tomato is "pomidor" but her nickname is some kind of slang, or playful version of tomato. It is a bit longer with at least 4-5 additional characters.

It is not simply pomidorowa, pomidora, pomidorula...but SOMETHING akin to these.

It is for print, so I would prefer to not get it horribly wrong.

Thanks in advance for you help!

Merged thread:
Tomato

Forgive my asking again, but it seems that my first post with this question may have been slightly misinterpreted...I was looking for a Polish slang word for "little tomato." It is a rather lengthy word, and it is certainly a form of "pomidor" - but something different.

A standard translation is useless, as this is not a standard word.

Any help?

Polish slang word for "little tomato."

Pomidorek

It's not slang, it's standard Polish.

Besides the cute "pomidorek" the word "pomidorówna" comes to mind, as a tease of some sort. The ending "-ówna" in Polish names is an old fashioned indicator of unmarried ladies.

If her forename is Dorota (or even if not), it could be 'pomidorka'.

a slang for pomidor... hmmm ketchup maybe?

I've heard people calling each other "ty buraku" before but never "hey pomidorku" what is that supposed to mean anyway? If you describe her for us I could come up with a catchy polish nick, a nice one, I promise.

He said "slang or playful".

"Pomidorówka" is yet another possibility, and you can easily google it.

"moja wołowinko"

Looks like diminutives are fashionable nowadays. Here is what I found under "pomidorówka" recipe:
Pierwszy etap ten sam co rosołek:)mięsko myjemy, gotujemy

None of this sound really good pgtx. :(

Let's stick with cute stuff like fruits, rainbows, hugs, unicorns and stay away from meat, animals and diary products.

Got it

How about Pomcia?
