Wednesday word: peccadillo

peccadillo: [pek-uh-dil-oh]

 Noun:  A very minor offense, a slight sin, a trifling fault.

Etymology: First use in about 1590.  A diminutive form of the Spanish word pecado meaning "sin."  From Latin, peccātum "transgression."

Why is this word so adorable?  X-D  It would be a cute name for a fictitious child demon character or something.
