Lol cute!  We go by “babe” which some how involved into “baber” and then to “baber pie!”  I know, it’s dorky, but it sounds right 🙂  We also go use “precious” and he calls me “princess.”  It actually sounds weird when we call each other by our “real” names.  That’s usually how we know the other is mad at us 🙁

We actually don’t use nicknames at all.  In my last long term relationship, we only ever called each other nicknames, and I think it put a bad taste in my mouth.  We’re just not overly mushy people.

Except for the cats.  I call the cats about a million nicknames.

BF and I dont do the nickname thing, although sometimes I call him really ridiculous ones out of the blue to be funny and vice versa…when we first started dating we would try to out do each other with really wacko nicknames (like honeysucklecreampuffsprinklekinswithacherryontop) Laughing

Baby, mostly.  I also call him sweetheart, but he hates it cause I call like everyone sweetheart, so I try not to do it to him.  Oh yea.. Mr. and Mrs. Brady.  We’re becoming the Brady Bunch with our children from those “starter” marriages.  Oh yea, we’re combining our last names after we get married (yep, he’s changing his name too), so we sometimes call each other our combined last names.

It’s a little embarassing how many we have for each other. He calls me monkey, milsy, hilsy, stinkle bear, hugsy, mimpus…I could go on and on, lol. My names for him are similar-monks, minkle, minks, minky, dimpus, love, bimple…oh man, I”m nauseating myself over here! 🙂

Babe/Babes is our very generic greeting to each other. I call my grandpa, Popsicle, and I recently started calling my SO Babesicle! lol

Specific to our relationship & more in the mushy-gushy pet name style…I call him “Bullfrog” (bc of certain noises he makes sometimes!! Embarassed). He calls me “Lily Pad” or “Stubby”…because I’m barely all of 5feet tall!

91011Bride – that’s awesome! i wish i could get my SO to change his last name to mine but it would sound utterly absurd (his first name is contained in my last name!).

i despise pet names so we don’t call each other anything. i’ll “yes, dear” jokingly and he’ll do the same.

Around here you’ll often here “love” “lover” “my love” “baby” “babe” and occasionally you’ll hear our real names, lol.

honeybun, honeybunny, buns, bunners, muffin, honey, lover, lovercake, poli, koali…….LOL. There are way more, and the majority of these come from him! haha I feel like he comes up with something new everyday.

And what’s so weird is that we NEVER use each other’s real names. And when we are forced to when in public or if there are people over, it is always the strangest thing to hear my real name come out of his mouth!
