I seem to recall that in English, cute used to mean precocious. Unfortunately I can't find a link to reference this.

Sorry, that was me. Didn't realise I'd been logged out.

cute actually means the same things as intelligent in English too, to the best of my knowledge, since it is a phonetic corruption of acute which means shrewd. Also related to the habit of referring to someone clever as being sharp.
