  • Hi Orchidee,


    its easy to explain. If Orchidee is a female nickname "clever clogs means" : smart lass(girl), male: smart lad (boy).
    smart= intelligent. (German: Pfiffikus)
    Sometimes it is used in a more pejorative way for a know-it-all (German: Besserwisser, Klugscheißer)
    At least you must have done your Gymglish homework very well, (100%), congratulations!
