Spanish term or phrase: nina de catanas
I think it says what I wrote above, it may say "Satanas" instead of whats is up there. I was told it means little girl of satan. I am not even sure its spanish. Any help would be appreciated.
Sinistergirl
English translation:depends
Explanation:
Niña de Satanás = Satan's child (female), Satan's little girl

...which should please someone named Sinistergirl, no?.....

However, if it's Catana instead of Satanás, Catana is a given name (female). In that case, it could be Catana's daughter, or child (female), or little girl.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer me. I really appreciate it. I am not "bad" as my nickname might lead you to believe but I wear a shirt that says "nina..." and I wanted to know for sure what it was saying. Thanks so much...Sin

Satan's girl/terrible girl


Explanation:
If it is "Catanas" it does not make too much sense to me. If it is Satanas, it is more logical. It is used sometimes if a child really behaves badly, though I have not heard it used too many times.

Good luck,
Agua

Satan's child


Explanation:
Garabato clued on to something here. He noticed your byline and I Ithink that has a lot to do with whatever this is. Anyway, as far as I can see he is correct. Good luck and Happy Halloween!.
