    Hi Jolynnn and welcome (I am kind of new also)

    in spanish we would say "un poco" but there might be differences depending on context. Would you tell us some more?

    ;)

    Puedes decir eso, pero si entiendes lo que escribo aquí, ya sabes más que ellos que dicen "un poquito" ;)

    The correct answer is "un Poquito", which means, a little bit, Poquito is a diminutive for "Poco".
    You can also use it like
    - Tienes hambre? Are you hungry?
    - Un poquito

    Hace un poquito de frio aqui: Is is a bit cold in here.

    poquito comes from poco
    as Loquito comes from loco (crazy)
    or sequito from seco (dry)

    when a word end with -co, the diminutive is -quito.

    Una preguntita... alguien sabe que quiere decir: "a tiny little bit though". Tengo una vaga idea de lo que puede significar, pero no tengo claro en contexto.

    Gracias por adelantado.

    Matteo:
    Creo que tu pregunta merece un hilo nuevo, pero en todo caso, yo diría que la manera austera de decirlo es, simplemente:
    'mi apellido tiene algo de griego'
