Taking a quick look at the Leo search results for cute, you'll find that there are a little over a dozen entries. I'm primarily asking about the application of the word towards people, but the cases regarding animals and objects are also of interest.
In English, we have a few words that you can consider as synonyms for cute, but all have slightly different shades of meaning which I'm finding difficult to put into words.
All are independent of gender.
As an extension to this, what are some gender specific words that can be used to describe attractiveness? Are there any differences between words like "hübsch" and "schön"?
So to be clear, my question is - what are some accurate translations for the above words?
Edit: I'm getting answers for cute applied to humans, but nobody has addressed describing objects that one might call "cute". An example: [object] is so small, it's a cutie/it's cute.
While "cutie" is not so common, and not really said by men (because come on.... "cutie"?), calling objects "cute" certainly is common enough to warrant a translation.
