Šaunuolis (for men) šaunuolė (for women) are words to refer to a person who is šaunus.

Šaunus means:
1) valiant
2) dashing
3) gallant (literature)
4) rakish
5) decent
6) neat
7) grand

That word seems to be used quite often in every day speech here in Lithuania. It seems the context it is used in is always a compliment after someone has done a good job at something. You might think of it as a word to "pat a person on the back" with the English equivalent being "you did a good job" or something like that.

You couldn't be more right, šaunuole.
It's good to see you around again.

You know its wierd now I think about it my dad seems to use that word on a day to day basis, and though I instinctively just understand it, it's difficult to translate adequately into English. But everything said is correct, it is a nice compliment, I would equate it with good girl/boy well done! Like if I did well on a test he'd say "šaunuolė!" :D

The IntraLED http://www.progress.lt/cgi-bin/intraled.exe?status=0 gives a perfectly fine definition:
šaunuolis fine/decent person; (apie vyrą t. p.) fine fellow; brick

although brick would be a slang term in English, meaning a "rock" of a man, which is a recursive slang, I realize.
