What a funny post! Lately, for some reason, we have been calling each other "friend." I’ll get text messages from him that say stuff like, "You busy friend?" Who knows where it came from!

well, i used to say "hi boyfriend" and he’d say "hi girlfriend", then i said "hi babe" and he’d say "hi baby", then i said "hi bubba" and he said "hi bubbie", and now it’s "hi bubs" and he says "hi bubs".

for my parents though… they call each other "mommy" and "daddy" because of my sister. when she was young, they would call each other "honey" and "darling". and because of that, my sister thought that was their names. so for a while, my sister would call my dad "honey" and my mom "darling".  so they had to start calling each other "mommy" and "daddy" so my sister would call them that!

I love saying hi FIANCE! We both do. We both waited a long time to call each other that so its fun. We also say my future husband and wife, it always gets a smile on our faces.

@Miss Texas: LOL that’s like Disney’s Lady and the Tramp.  The names of Lady’s owners are Jim Dear and Darling!

My Fiance and I have a million squishy nicknames for each other (which when most people hear them they make a face like they’ve just eaten a lemon wedge).

The latest is from Fivel Goes West: Baby-Bunkin-Bunker-Boos!

our nickname came from a progression from babe…it went from "hey babe" to "hey baby" when mumbled sounds like "hey bebe" which turned somehow into Meems or Meme. I have to be careful not to call him that in front of family and friends as it isn’t very masculine and all the grandma’s in our family are also called Mimi. I like it though, it’s cute and it’s ours. Once we get married though I do like the wifey and hubs or hubster.

I usually call my husband Pom Pom.. I can’t remember how that came about, but I have called him that for a while now.  Sometimes I call him Husbie as well.

Used to be "baybabe" for everything for both of us. Now its "babe" and occasionally fiance.  Can’t wait to call him hubby or hub 🙂

For awhile after the engagement, I still called him boyfriend; we were together for 6 1/2 years so it was hard to change!  I still sometimes slip and then correct myself with "fiance."  We also teasingly call each other "lovah."  Everyonce in awhile we use "babe" but, come to think of it, we don’t really use nicknames very often.  Hmmmm….

Nicknames are so cute (but can be embarassing to admit!).  He calls me "honey," "babe," and "cookie"  — don’t know where the last one came from, but it stuck, hence my screen name.  I call him "sweetie", "baby," and "moley", which is a made up word that rhymes with his first name. 

Can’t wait to call him hubby, though!

We are unbearably saccharine in our nicknames. I’ll admit I love it :). Some of the ones I use are sweet pea, baby doll, babe, sweet darling, and lately, cookie (he smells like cookies to me!). We call each other sugar bear, or marriage bear (while we were engaged it was wedding bear). Sometimes I call him "Husband Man" (like a superhero!).

It’s not very original but we use to poke fun at each other and call each other "Boo". Now that what we actually call each other.

I’ve always been someone to make up nicknames for people around me and my F just gets the worst of it. I still call him ‘Boyfriend’ or ‘BF’ (I’m not a huge fan of the term fiance, it just doesn’t fit us), I also call him ‘Buggle’ (rhymes with snuggle), ‘Green Bean’ (he’s really tall and skinny) and then ‘Buggle Bean’. Also the common ‘honey’ and ‘babe’.

He calls me ‘Girlfriend’, ‘GF’, ‘Sweetpea’, ‘Honey’, and ‘Peanut’. I don’t know where his come from or why lol, but I just continue to answer…

We call each other "honey" for the most part.  We also have some other fun names like "Stan" when I ask him, "What’s the plan, Stan?"  He’ll ask the same question and call me Fran.  Then there’s "What are you talking about, Willis" and I’m his Phyllis.  Our most recent one is "Squishee," which came from a Japanese drama.  I couldn’t pronounce the girl’s name, and I just called her Squishee.
