What are some nicknames that you and your DH or SO call each other?

I am tired of using "Babe" as a nickname but we can't think of anything good to use. Honey and sweatheart just don't fit us. A lot of our friend couples call each other "babe" and we all get confused as to who is talking to who. What are some names that you all use?

  • My hubs and I don't use nicknames we call each other by our real names. Although when I am mad at him I will call him Steven (his full name- that his mom/family call him) or I will call him Stevie (which he hates!). He prefers to be called Steve.
    If you and your hubs want to do nicknames - do you have names that can be shortened into nicknames? (example- name Veronica--nickname Ronnie. )
    What about a nickname after something you like? My grandpa used to call me Doll (I loved the doll my Grandparents gave me). My sis was 'snickerdoodles' cause she liked snickerdoodles.

  • I call him Babe or Luv and he calls me Beeky.  That's where I got my username from.

  • Your trying to come up with new nicknames for yourself and him? It should come naturally.. not made up, then it will sound "made up" when you use it on eachother.. and others will catch it too and it will sound fake.

  • Well my pet name for hubby is not as endearing as some of these others but he answers to it anyway. Let me say first that it came from our cell phone co. Anytime I called to change anything they would tell me the user of the primary line had to contact them(GRRRRR!). So now i very affectionately call him "primary line".
