    He calls me Penguin and I call him Monkey.  I don’t know how we ended up on those two specific animals.  I really only use Scott when I am talking about him in a conversation.

    Hubby evolved to Hubba Bubba, Hubbalicious, Hubsy, and I’m Hunna Bunna evolved from Honey.

    One time I called him Hubba Bubba in the movie line and he was so embarrassed b/c someone turned around. I think it softens a lot of conversations though. I like it when we argue and he starts it with Honey. We don’t ever use regular names either.

    Hahaha – our nicknames have evolved.  And we’re totally in the same boat about barely saying each other’s real first names.  It’s so weird when we say it and it’s just the two of us…it usually means we’re arguing :-/

    But when we first started dating, Fiance called me Baby Love, from some song.  It’s been shortened to BL, beez, beezo, and many other wild variations.

    We call each other babe, never by name unless we’re referring to each other in conversation with other people. It has evolved into baben, so either babe or baben is what we call each other

    lol the other day i was going to get a drink of water and I called from the kitchen, “Hey HisName, want some water or tea?” and he was like… what? why would you call me that? I was confused. I didn’t even realize until then that we literally NEVER use each others names when speaking to each other.

    We do too. Usually (in front of others), it’s babe.

    But we both call each other “nooney.” Started as “babe,” then “babe-urn,” then “babe-urnoon,” “babe-urnooney,” and now just “nooney.”

    Also, he calls me “toes.” My toes like to stretch/ spread themselves out and get in weird positions– he thinks it’s funny. I swear, I don’t even know I’m doing it.

    We only use nicknames. If he uses my real name I get freaked out. So here’s our list of names, they’re weird and I don’t even know how some of them have evolved.

    For me: Babe, beautiful, Nunny, my first initial, Monkey, Monkey Toes

    For DH: Babe, handsome, face, Nunny, Pantsis, add me onto the “Jerkface” list, his first and last name, his first middle last name when he’s exasperating me, dude.

    My all time favourite is one for me: Question whore. An explanation: I ask a lot of questions (mostly because DH is terrible at actually supplying any relevant information on a daily basis, so I need to ask a lot of questions to figure out what in the world he has planned/is going on/is going to happen/how he manages to function in life). So I guess one day I was going on as usual trying to seek out said information, and he called me “Questionator”, to which I responded “Did you just call me a Question Whore?!” Clearly it stuck because come on, that’s pretty funny right there 😉

    We tested out a bunch of nicknames through our 8 year reltionship but the one that stuck the longest and we still use are babe and stud!
