Nicknames for your lover are fun to choose from and fun to create. From casual dating to a more serious relationship and even marriage, you often find yourself calling your significant other by a pet name. This pet name or term of endearment lets the other person know that you’re feeling affection for him (or her).
Not to compare our significant other to a dog—okay, maybe so—but we often have endearing terms for our pets as well. Nicknames bespeak of a special bond between us and someone else or something else.
This affection rides on a wavelength of love. We use nicknames when cooing cute little babies. C’mon, haven’t you at some time or another called that cute little toddler a Silly Goose?
There are the ones you may hear often, ones you rarely hear, and ones you’ve never heard before. Let’s start with these…
When choosing nicknames for your lover, you might want to take into account what seems to fit him. Take the nickname Pooh Bear. Maybe your significant other is like a cuddly teddy bear. If the nickname fits, let him wear it.
Of course, if he doesn’t like the name that you choose for him, don’t insist upon him wearing it, even if you feel that it’s perfect. It will only cause friction. There are plenty of nicknames. Choose one that you both feel comfortable with.
Does your lover call you Precious? Perhaps you are most precious to him and therefore he feels that the nickname is sooo you.
Sometimes when he picks out a nickname for you—and sometimes when he doesn’t pick it out, it just comes to him naturally when he looks at you—it’s hard not to smile or even gush. It’s almost as if he kisses you each time he calls you that special name.
The nickname Bae is heard in the Pharrell and Miley Cyrus Music Video, Come Get It, Bae. Since this song, the use of the term Bae has exploded when one refers to his lover.
You may have heard Tom Jones’s song, What’s New Pussycat.
His lyrics clearly show his devotion to a lover. Here are some of his lyrics…
What’s new Pussycat whoa
What’s new Pussycat whoa oh
Pussycat, pussycat, I’ve got flowers
And lots of hours to spent time with you…
Let’s look at the origin of the word Shawty. According to the Urban Dictionary, the word had it origin in Atlanta, GA, first referring to a short person or a child. But the word transitioned to a way of addressing someone who is not short.
Instead of the greeting, “Wassup Man,” one can say, “Wassup Shawty or even Shawtdawg.” This term of endearment further transitioned to include a man’s girlfriend or a female who is especially attractive.
All these nicknames confer a meaning of pleasantness. When you refer to your lover using one of these nicknames, if it doesn’t bring a smile to his face, it should leave him with a sense of being deeply appreciated, special, and loved.
What are some nicknames for your lover that you like to use? Are they the standard ones from the list above or have you created a one-of-a-kind nickname for him (her)? If you have, it should make his heart melt.
