So, do you? I almost never do. Probably the only time I would ever use his name is if I were trying to get his attention from a distance. Just now, I yelled “Keith!” just to be a weirdo and he agreed that it is super odd when I use his given name. He’s always “baby” to me!

I use his name a lot, but I use his silly nickname when I’m being sweet or playful. In public, he definitely prefers to be called by his real name.

Ha! I do the exact same thing. It is weird for me to use his given name. Normally it is some term of endearment like honey or baby or sweetheart.
He on the other hand, only uses my given name if we are having a disagreement and he is trying to talk me down out of a tree (not literally of course). Normally he calls me Esposa (he spent 2 years living in Mexico!)! The kids think it is hilarious!

I am the same as you! & I feel the same as your husband. When I hear my husband say my name it seems odd! IDK why, just does! We always call each other by our pet names like baby.

We use silly pet names for each other, but I call him by his name often too.

Not usually. I know this sounds weird but I’m not the biggest fan of the american version of his name and whenever I use the correct pronunciation he looks at me weird so I almost always call him by a random nickname. He usually only calls me by my name as well when I’m in trouble lol

I do, but infrequently. I feel weird saying it to him, but not when I’m talking about him to someone else.
Unless he’s not paying attention, and then I use his first and middle name!

I usually call him babe or honeybun if I want something.

I always call my Fiance Babe. He calls me babe too. Every now and then, (Mostly in arguments) we will call eachother by our real names.

I usually use a nickname or ‘babe’. I usually only call him by his full first name when I really need something. Most of his friends have always called him by his last name, even moreso now that he’s military, and that really threw me off for a long time!

I RARELY call him by name, it’s usually babe, baby or honey… same with him for me, it would be weird to use our names. lol

He goes by a nickname (a shortened version of his name) and if I ever call him by name, it’s always “(full name) darling” just to feel less serious about it.
It strikes him as funny because no one ever calls him by his full name, to the point where he doesn’t even recognize it as his own name. Most of the time I call him “darling.” It started out as something goofy because I hate pet names, but it stuck.
He usually calls me “love.”

Very rarely. Usually only when talking about him to someone else, or if I need to grab his attention. I’m like PP… it feels weird to hear my name, and feels weird to call him by name. More often than not, it’s “babe”, “sweetie” or other strange nicknames we have for eachother.
