A tall and rather 'strong' woman can be called 'eine Amazone'.

Hamburger, I also know the Swiss term 'Luusmaidli' for 'Lausemädchen' - more or less the female version of 'Lausebengel'.

JGoldman, I am still curious as to where you are using these terms. Do you know any German at all? Do you build sentences? Do you just use the terms - for what? Thanks for enlightening me!

Hi-urs53-thank you.

What is a 'Lausemädchen' ?

I'm using these terms as names or nicknames for my comic-book characters. Some of my characters are German so I wanted to give them German names. Very Happy

Lausemädchen is the same as the Austrian Lausmensch - bad girl.

I see, a comic book. If you use the expressions as names I think you can be pretty creative. For example, a term like 'Kampfmotte' is not used as a correct German expression - but why not as a name? I get a picture in my head when I hear that so why not?

Thank you. Do you know any German slang terms for "tomboy"-terms used in Germany for a "girl that likes to do "guy" things", and/or a meaculine -acting female besides:

Wildfang
Range
Wilderange?

Please let me know. Very Happy

No, sorry, JGoldman, I can't think of anything else. From the sound of these words, I prefer Wildfang.

Thank you. Do you know any German slangs for a "powerfully-built female" besides:

die Wallküre
die Kommode
die Tonne
das Drumm

But have a positive connotation?

..thinking
hmmm:

das Drumm

did u mean by that : die Trommel? as Drumm is an english word, not german

how about:

die Mollige (heavy/overweight woman/girl, not negative, more on the kind site)

die runde Maus (round / runde referring to weight/overweight, yet Maus making it sweet, as generally guys call a girl Maus (mouse) only with positive con.)

die Kraeftige (kraeftig generally means strong, but if you say : die Kraeftige, one generally means a woman/girl larger then normal...overweight, yet it is not necessarily negative.

hope these help.
