Do/did you have a pet name for someone you love? Usually my pet names cosist of adding or shortening a name of a person. One of my ex boyrfirends, Josh became Joshie (he hated that) My son Micheal who is 21 is still Mikey, probably will be forever. Ryan was ryry, another ex of mine but he didn't mind me calling him that. My favorite pet name that Ryan used to call me was beautiful. No one else ever called me that before. I loved it. I have also been called babe, honey., sweetie, darling and princess. Oh and Snowy. What are the names you call people and why?? Whats your favorite pet name to be called?

I call my boyfriend my Sweetheart. My sister calls her husband Pooky. I call my niece my Sugarplum. As for names, I have a friend named Svetlana, who goes by Sveta, and my sister Rebecca goes by Becky.

I call my girlfriend Pinky not sure exactly why, she is small and cute and pink maybe thats why I wasn't thinking of Pink (the singer) or Pinky and the bean I really hope she is ok, I like to hope she would call me before doing any stupid or unpleasant things. Its her life I guess. WHy did you lose all them people? Is tonight fun for you, or not fun? Do you see any options? Someone used to call me "Cool Breeze", a very long time ago . I still like that.

My husband has always called me "Beaver" I don't know why and I surely don't look like one (HA) sometimes I call him hay darling or dear and for my daughter my husband calls her mushroom from the mario games and I call her pumpkin.

The names I have for my exs couldn't be repeated on this site, I'm afraid as I would violate t/c's lol! I did call my ex mugwump, they thought it was sweet (I think it came from the Gremlins) so to me it was bad name with stuck and they didn't even know it. I have called them babe which is boring I know. The names I've had is 'baby boy' because my partner was older than me and sweetheart which I hate and it's like put my fingers down my throat time, they used to call me that in front of others and it made me cringe. Although I have been called worst names LOL x

I call my husband "honey" and "b.c."....BC because when he had hair, he was balding in the smae way as the cartoon strip character was. He looked so much like him. I can my son, Chayton, "baby boy" and "chay chay". My daughter, Gyllian, is called "baby girl" and "gigi". My daughter calls my son "bubba" and my son calls my daughter "sissy". My husband calles me "love" and I love that. Like you, I was always called honey, babe, etc. I like "love"...makes me feel special. :)

My fiance really only calls me 'babe'. I call him 'babe' too, and recently I've started calling him 'handsome'. I'll also sometimes refer to him as my big teddy bear, cause he's strong like a bear but he's a softie at heart.
