A friend of mine calls her daughter puentes/tas or something like that, but I can't find it in an online dictionary. Can someone tell me what it means.

er do you possibly mean "puenteas" ??

..and er well im not a native spanish speaker therefore im not sure if its a figure of speech or a nickname or sth of the sort.. but literally i believe it means sth to the extent of: - to go around sth (like bypass it) or to advoid sth? :confused:

Yes, puentes means bridges in Spanish, and puentas I don't think it exists (at least, I haven't heard it).
And I can't imagine anyone calling puentes her daughter :confused:

As above Puentes = bridges and it's really weird to call someone like that :confused:

In that case, maybe the mum is saying "pwinthess" (princess said with a infantile lisp), possibly a nick-name from early childhood?
