|German term or phrase: Nettes Platzchen|
|This is part of my dogs registered name I was told it was German can you tell me what it means|
|nice little biscuit / cookie|
nett = nice
Plätzchen = 1. cookie / biscuit
2. snug little spot / corner
The word comes from 'Platz', meaning place, spot, town square. Adding the dots over the 'a' and the 'chen' at the end changes it to a grammatical 'diminutive', implying cuteness or snugness as well as smaller size. However, I'm not sure how the word also came to mean 'cookie'.

lovely, nice, pretty...little place/spot, but also 'cookie'
Plätzchen: dim. from Platz (place), means 'little place/spot/location'.
Other meaning for 'Plätzchen' = cookie
