Hello. I was told that

Nagli or harður nagli

are the most common slangs for "Tough guy". Does anyone know any others?

tomboy- Strákastelpa
punk- Pönk
gangster- "gangster", bófi, glæpon

Female prone to fighting- ofbeldisfull kona

delinquent boy- ólöghlýðinn Strákur, sekur
strong guy- Sterkur maður, massatröll, vöðvabúnt,

Hope that helps!

Thank you Francis. Would you mind asking your friend a few more questions?

I'd like to know:

What are Icelandic slangs for:

brat?

Are there shorter ways to say "Ofbeldisfullur maður", and "ólöghlýðinn Strákur", and "ólöghlýðin stelpa", and "ólöghlýðinn Strákur"?

Please let me know. Thank you. Very Happy

Hello Francis. I'd like to know:

How do you say, hard nut/tough nut (to crack) in Icelandic?
"A tough and difficult person/place or thing"?

I'd like to know, what is a shorter way to say,

"stifur á meiningunni"(slang)?

What are Icelnandic slangs for:

cool guy besides, toeffar(i)?
cool girl besides "pæja"?

Are there any slang terms I can use for "vixen" and "brat" and "lively, spirited female"?

Are there any slangs for a girl that's a "rascal" or a "rogue"?

Can "hörku kona" or "hörku kvendi"
"Hörð stelpa", "Hörð stulka" and "Hörð tata" be used like slang, and can I use an expression like, "Hörku Beygla", or "Hörð Beygla"? Beygla I know is an Icelandic slang for a woman/girl.

Are there any other slangs I can use for "tough female" besides "hörkukerling "?

Please let me know. Thank you. Very Happy
