In Faroese, 'fitta' is an adjective meaning 'cute'...

The Faroese adjective for left-handed 'lámur' apparently comes from Irish láimh (or something similar to that), which means 'hand'.
Also, the original Faroese word for a 'negro' is/was 'blámaður' (blueman).
OK, maybe these aren't that strange (well maybe since they are 2 Celtic words), but I'll find some others.
