s tatay? Is that a nickname, or is it a word in your language? What does it mean? My husband and I don't have children yet but when we do I'll call him Dad or Daddy most likely. Right now I call him baby or my pet name for him, which I won't disclose because I don't know that he'd want me to. I will say that this pet name is just something I came up with because of a song! lol!

After responding to you I saw the response above. Tatay means daddy, well that is good to know. Yes, I think it's a lot better to not confuse the children by using pet names or even real names in front of the children as they may start using those names and while they wouldn't realize it it'd be a form of disrespect!

I call my hubby, dear. It was our endearment even when we were not yet married. For me, it's really sweet and in our dialect it means "palangga" or someone that you really cares a lot. Now that we have our son, I sometimes call him daddy for my baby to recognize him.

I call my husband tatay too in front of my child and he calls me nanay. But if it just us, we call each other love or mahal. I have read that it is best to call your other half with a different name from how your kids call him/her. It makes the relationship sweeter with a "petname" and reminds you that you are not just a parent, you are a partner and lover too.

Most commonly "how is your life" usually the polite "go" is added often this life. " o take no go shu jin" is heard this is the polite "o". it is home or house'. here means your master in your house'. the usage of 'go' and 'o' is ambiguous. generally 'o' is added to traditional jappanese language oriented pronunciation ('kun yomi')and 'go' to chinese oriented pronuciation 'kun-yomi' but there are many exceptions. that is all right as colloquial expression. it is also heard, no 'o' or 'go' is added to most politely, the sama sir is added like as (too polite! "o" and "sama") it is all right. the same with above.noticeable is that the pronunciation for you are almost never used.it pronoun are used,it means that his wife is ignored, naturally they will have childrens call their father. 'o-toh-sa-n'. childrens ask their mother 'where is "otohsan" '. now the mother replies " otohsan " went to work. thus 'otohsan ' or 'tohsasn' becomes the pronoun for calling her husband,"otohsan" or "tohsan" becomes the pronoun for calling her husband, "otohsan". I suppose this situation would be much the same in other countries.

I call my wife her nickname directly, and she call me "papa" following my daughter, I think anything with sweet voice is OK.

Hi...when my husband and I were still lovers we use to call each other "dear"...But later when we got married I call him "dy" and he calls me "mi"...We use this so our little girl would do the same, she call my husband daddy and I as mommy...Because if we call each other by other names she would also follow. She is already one year old and a good imitator.

I don't have a husband but I do have a boyfriend. I call him "baby", "babe", "tams" as in "sweetams", "love" and "mahal". We have other pet names but then those are the ones we usually call one another by.

..hi.. you're from the Philippines right? We're kababayan.. For me, I call my husband papa since from the experience of one of our neighbors who calls each other by first names, when their son grew up, he also calls his father with his first name.. I do believe that there is an impact when you call your husband tatay, papa, or daddy when it comes to child rearing because children usually imitate you first.. everything that they hear from us, they try to imitate it.. I think you also knew this..

In our Indian tradition papa means father and child called their parents called papa and mamma... and I called to my husband without name like Suno G or AG suno..
