By February 13, 2016Word of the Day

Ninny (n)


A foolish and weak person.

My nanna always called her grandchildren ninnies, I’d never heard it from anyone else until yesterday, it’s a lovely word and a perfect putdown when expletives aren’t allowed.

Example sentences

“Oh stop being such a ninny, you know how to make a bed!”

“She’s such a ninny, she goes into a panic of the littlest things.”
