In Russian the word "Zhirovoi" is an adjective, it means "fat, fatty, adipose, grease".
It can also mean "wealthy" but only in a narrow context.
"Zhiroshka" describes someone who is fat and little. The ending -chka expresses caress and diminishes the size or importance.
Some people use the word "Zhidiaga" as a pejorative from "Zhid" (Yid) in the sense of "Jew, miser".
