Nicknames for significant others. - Page 2

post #31 of 76
We're really very dull. We call each other 'love' most of the time and I often call him 'chick' or 'chicken'.
post #32 of 76
With a past boyfriend... "love", "lover", "heart", "treasure", "hime" (Japanese for princess).



Current one... "babe" and "baby".

Hmmm. I call him Koala Bear (because he looks like one), "luv" in my cheesiest British accent, and "kook" when he's being weird.



he calls me... Jenny-bird, fruit bat, dearie-dear (looks nauseating, sounds sweet), and of course, "Madame Sexypants."

I call my guy "Dude".

He also calls me Dude, just to be funny. (I guess it's our version of Old Man and Old Lady.)

He calls me his "Swiss Miss" sometimes, too. (My family's part Swiss)



We don't go for that Babe and Honey stuff. Bah, humbug.

Oh, I love humiliating my husband in front of our friends and family with the most gawdawful nicknames...



Sugar Lumps, Sugar Butt, HotPants, puddin', punkin' (both said in a little girl voice...ewww), Lust Lump (haha, he did a spit take 'cos I called him that in front of his mother), Sugar, Schnookums, My Beloved, My Dearest One....ad nauseum.



But even when I'm NOT trying to embarass him, I call him "babe", "honey", "sexy", or "sweetie".



He calls me "hey you". LOL.

Eh...I call the d00d I'm with "sugar plum" for whatever reason...don't remember where/why I picked it up...



I'm trying to keep things "light and casual" however, so lately it's not been anything or "Taiko Drum Master"...long story.



Sometimes he'll address me as "Tiffanisaurus Rex"...erm. It's kind cute I guess



Cheers!



P.S. With past SO's, I've had a boatload of 'em...too many to recall, probably.

well i've got something going with this guy right now, ie we really like each other but he has a girlfriend (that he needs to break up with!!!!!) so we're not dating. but we flirt incessantly. He decided our nicknames would be "Mami" and "Papi" hahaha...I am Mami, he is Papi. He's hispanic so I guess it works. Lately he's been calling me "Princess" and I just about die every time, because he says it to mean I deserve to be treated like a princess and that I AM a princess....sigh. He'll call me darlin' on occasion, I call him honey (i call everyone honey though)....he calls me babygirl.....hm. its nice because the ex and i never had names for eachother.

well, now the ex has nicknames: c**t, a**hole, prick, etc. actually when we were going out i used to call him Puddin' on occasion, but he didn't like it. But its probably because the story behind thats weird...he has dimples and once my mom said to me "his dimples are adorable...you could like eat pudding out of them!" I laughed for ages and then decided I would call him puddin'. i am so weird.

I am completely repelled by pet names, with the single exception of sweetie. I used to not even like that one, but the guy I'm currently seeing calls me that and for some reason it doesn't bother me. However any variation on it like sweetie-pie, sweetheart make me cringe. Cutie is tolerable although he knows not to call me cutie-pie unless he wants to be smacked.

On a side note, I hate when people use petnames in public. I have a friend whom I will not hang out with when her bf is there simply because they're so sickening together.

I don't know... after years of being called "hey you" I'd swoon if the right guy threw in a few little nicknames... I don't mind 'em a BIT!

~*BUMP*~



Just stumbled across this *old* thread again and went "Awwwww..."



Let's hear some more stories about you and your significant other and the nicknames you use - these are SWEET!



(And to update my above^^^ out-of-date post... I have very definitely found the "right guy"...)
post #41 of 76
I call him bear/baby/forms of marky-something. or whoreboy, and he likes that somehow.



he has a billion nicknames for me, he's the only person I let call me regina without getting angry. they all make me all swoony no matter what it is, even the weird facelipscheeks one lol.

I've been called CB (as in Charlie Brown), Sunshine, and Sexy. My first girlfriend wanted to call me Baby and for me to call her Babe.



I've also been called Pookie in a kind of tongue-in-cheek way, along with Tiger and Studmuffin. I kinda like Tiger

my SO calls me fugly (f****** ugly).

I'm not sure it's a term of endearment.
post #44 of 76
My DH calls me Sparky. It drives me nuts.
post #45 of 76
i don't like cute nicknames ... we do tend to call each other "sun" in russian, which is kind of like 'sunshine" in english but still not the same. and "babe" or "love' .... that's about it.

Denni's parents call each other "peach"
post #46 of 76
The only pet names I can think of from my current.. whatever it is.. is he sometimes calls me "Babe" or "Cutie." I usually hate pet names, but it doesn't bother me when he says it...



I HATE the petname "lover." It sounds so.. sleezy and shallow. If anyone called me that they'd be on the curb so fast.

I never call my husband by his name, Tommy, while talking to him.....

He is usually Pookie Bear (yes, another pookie!) or just Pook, and Boo. Not sure where Boo came from.....

Sometimes he is my Tomcat, heehee.



He usually calls me "Beautiful", and I love it. He called me by name a while ago. I was shocked....WTF..... I said, "What did you just call me????"

Besides the usual Babe and Hun, I had two cute nicknames. One was Cookie Dough, but my favorite was Honeybean. I know the guy that called me Cookie Dough used it with other girls, but Honeybean (from another guy) was definitely an original.

Heh. This reminds me of the other relationship etiquette conundrum. When two grownups are together, do you say...



Boyfriend/Girlfriend (too high school)

Soul Mate (too Meg Ryan/Hollywood romance)

Lover (too sexual)

Partner (too ambiguous/gay/sexual)

Significant Other (too clinical)



*sigh*

I was called a princess, a flower, nanner and nan-nan.

I called him princer (he was trying to say princess and it came out princer so I started calling him princer) dee-dee, daggle-dan, deed, stink-o, etc.

We had nicknames for the cat too, LOL.

We don't call each other these names anymore.

It's interesting, though, that women refer to each other as "girlfriend" all the time and nobody thinks anything of it, but if a guy refers to another guy as a "boyfriend", something is definitely assumed.[/quote]

The closest I can come up with is "life partner", which still seems awkward. For introductions I think sticking to names is fine without defining a relationship.



I remember reading a discourse on this topic some time ago, and the writer ended up describing him as "He's the guy who takes out the trash".
post #52 of 76
I generally use "partner", although I certainly refer to her by her first name to people who will recognize it.



My usual pet name is a version of her name, so I won't say it because I don't want other people to pick it up So I use the generic stuff, sweetie a lot, sometimes baby or babe.



I have it on good authority that OregonAmy's pet name has changed.
post #53 of 76
I must be weird, we have no petnames for each other.
post #54 of 76
One of my old boyfriends called me Kit. Took him a while to find something that I wouldn't bite him for using... only because I like foxes.



I've never given another a nick name, besides "my love".
post #55 of 76
I haven't really gone in too much for nicknames beyond "hon" or "sweetie", or perhaps some permutation of their name... oddly enough, though, my male friends would always give my boyfriends a descriptive nickname along the lines of _________ Boy (for example, a Greek guy I dated was nicknamed Dolma Boy (as in dolmades). This tradition continued up until my last boyfriend, who was christened Skippy. When I asked my friends why they left out the "Boy," they said he looked so young it was assumed.

I woke up with a cold and my boyfriend keeps calling me "sickyface"



lol
post #57 of 76
"sexypants" and "babycakes". Haha.
post #58 of 76
I used to call my ex 'squirrel' and he called me 'puppy'. We're good friends now and still call each other that. With my current bf we just use 'baby' and 'my love' all the time. And it is funny when I'm called by my actual name by these two. It just sounds weird coming from them.
post #59 of 76
Oh god, we're awful with pet names. We call each other baby, babe, babycakes, honey, sweetie, etc. Plus I call him sexy man and he calls me pretty girl.



<<<not dorky. not at all.
post #60 of 76
We call each other 'poop' or 'poop face'. have no clue how it came around. It's nice cos even when we are arguing we call each other that. No argument that start with 'poop face' ends badly.



I know.. lovers are sick!
