    :confused: (sorry, I didn't see this was Romanian) armadillo is how I've heard it in Spanish...but according to wikipedia, it's also: cusuco, pichi, mulita, tatú, gurre, cachicamo, toche, pirca, among others.

    Now, I also feel the need to say that Armandillo (from Armando) is a diminutive. So, in Italian it might be Armandello.

    Is an armadillo also called "armodial" in Romanian, in addition to being called "tatu"? This is the word that the dictionary here gives me, but I can't find it in DEX and I get very few Google hits for this. I wonder whether there's something wrong with the word, or whether armadillos are so obscure or irrelevant for Romanian speakers that they've written very little about them on the Internet. Meanwhile, I cannot really count the hits for "tatu", because this word is apparently a Romanian surname as well.

    N-am întâlnit până acum "armodial" - tatu este denumirea acceptată, vezi și aici

    S-ar putea să fie o greșeală, n-am mai găsit armodial decât la halo.ro

    Cred că dacă-i spui armadilo (nu apare în dicționare!) multă lume va înțelege despre ce e vorba :)

    Mulţumesc pentru răspunsul. Dacă vine vorba de o greşeală în dicţionarul WordReference, sper că va fi corectată curând (poate trebuie s-o semnalez?).
