Girls, what 'pet' names do you like to be called?

If you had a SO what pet names would you want them to call you? Which are acceptable and which arent? I mean common ones, not stuff like 'schnookums' or anything like that lol. Or if you HAVE a SO, what pet names do they call you? And do you like them or not?

Also, would you call a SO pet names? Please give examples of pet names that you would call them. Thanks!

Updates:
Let me list the ones i had in mind. Please tell me which ones you like, and which ones you don't:

Babe
Baby
Sweetie
Sweetheart
Honey
Love
Princess

Do you dislike any of these? These are the only ones i can think of besides dear and darling, but i don't like either of those
I'd like to add to the list:

Cutie
Sexy
Precious
..."kitty" lol

What Girls Said 110

  • Babe - can sometimes come across as insincere, depends on your relationship. Depends who says it to me and how.

    Baby - can sometimes come across as patronising, depends on your relationship. Depends who says it to me and how.

    Sweetie Sweetheart Honey Love Princess Cutie Precious
    Yes to all the above

    Sexy - not quite as endearing, but if it fits the mood and situation, can be ok. I wouldn't personally like it as a regular pet name.

    ..."kitty" - for me, em... just no. Never. Maybe that's just me and coz I don't really like animals haha.

    "Petal" can be nice, angel too.

    It's one of those things though that really depends on the girl. I generally don't mind pet names and like it - my sister on the other hand can't bear them. Her boyfriend called her babe once, never again haha. Also for me it depends who's saying it. With my ex I always felt he was being genuinely affectionate and it was nice. I know guys though that just use them to talk girls round. It's usually pretty obvious when it's insincere. Also, some guys say it to everyone and it loses its effect, especially when they "honey" and "darling" everyone from a 90 year old to a fish. My advice is use them when you're genuinely being affectionate so you don't over use. WARNING: Handle with care if arguing with the girl- it can come across as patronising.

  • Sassy Sasquatch.
    Okay, there's a long story behind that- there was a guy I met about a year ago at a concert that I was performing in with my brother. I said something sassy, then I tripped over my brother who made a comment about how my big feet make me so clumsy. The guy turned around from behind me and called me "Sassy Sasquatch" and, though we've only spoken a few times since, he's referred to me as that ever since. And, believe it or not, it's my favorite nickname to date because this guy actually took the time out to think of something that's just between us and, whenever I hear it, I think of him.

    Sweetheart-I actually like this but not all the time, like it's actually my name.
    Honey-Naaah
    Love-Maybe, whenever heard it though it's always in a cocky way though.
    Princess-If I feel like the relationship is for the long haul then yes.
    Dear-Feels like I'm old and thats not bad I just wouldn't want my partner calling me that
    Darling-Theres always been some sort of elegance associated with this pet name so maybe.
    Cutie-Ohh I hate this, seriously.
    Sexy-Only in the bedroom-I'm not a prude. Haha.
    Precious-It'll always remind me of Lord Of The Rings "My Precious".
    Kitty-Never.

  • Honestly i just think it's sweet when he gets clever with it. Not just the normal stuff but something that he actually had to get creative with. For example, a play on her name. My name i adagio and it kinda sounds like pistachio, so this he calls me pistachio and it misght sound cheesy but its adorable that he tried finding something that sounded like my name, espessially since its adagio. Apart from that i think beautiful is really sweet.

  • I don't mind those pet names except for love and princess. Love is like Shrek and Princess.. well-Shrek lol.
    Honey is calling me a food but I can live with that if my potential SO called me that.
    I actually just like him calling me by my name, simple as that.

  • I HATE being called baby.
    Babe is ok, but still not my favorite.

    i have family that already calls me princess. So i wouldn't mind my SO calling me princess but it wouldn't be much of a pet name.

    Sweety/sweet heart and honey are alright.

    I think love and darling is very endearing.

    • You don't like love? Your the first person who has said that! (It seems to be the most popular). But just curious, what don't you like about baby?

      I'm the opposite- i like baby, but i don't like babe.

    • Love and baby sound Linda cheesy lol it makes me want to have an irrational reaction like punching him haha ahh that's terrible. Babe sounds pretty casual.

    • Ahhh well alright, suit yourself :P
      But to me, babe just seems insincere. And baby, sounds casual to me. Love also sounds cheesy to me, but I'd call any girl that who liked it.

  • Lol most of the time, my BF just uses my name... but then again we're not super touchy-feely.

    Sometimes if he wants a new greeting he'll slip something in like "babe". He calls me "kid" and "little girl" sometimes just because he finds it funny, but I actually think it's kind of cute. Probably weird but hey what's normal anyway

  • You simply can't go wrong by calling a girl "beautiful" or "gorgeous" it reminds her that you respect her enough not to call her sexy which will only make her think you want sex out of your relationship.

  • I like names that have some sort of meaning to us. It doesn't have to be a typical pet name. Just something cute and personal to me/us.

  • It honestly depends on the lady to whom you are referring! I prefer well thought nicknames that aren't generic, like sweetness, lily, my lovely, honeysuckle, or even a reference from a movie favorite. Bit you should come up with pet names specifically suited to your girl (that way you cab give her a cheesy line as to why that name and get EXTRA brownie points for thinking it through)
