TERMS OF ENDEARMENT


Blog Posted:2/4/2014 9:00:00 AM


i'm the type who gives special terms of endearment to people i have affinity for...perhaps, it's the sentimentalist in me, but isn't it nice to be called by a personal name?.. michael falotico addresses our linda -marie, " jersey girl".. cyndi mac millan aka " soul sister" lavishes us with " doll", "hon", and gail enjoys " sweetie" for most.. russell sivey likes " kashi" for kash poet , which i also use for the latter... as in, kashi bud!

my list is long when it comes to naming others in a different way.. there's " mareey" for yasmin khan and her nick  for me is "priya".. "donns" is for donna jones, " andie" belongs to andrea... hmm, " mus", well that's  mustapha; " rich" equals richard lamoureu... ohh, my " vie" happens to be mystic rose.. so many more!

outside soup, my baby nephew calls me " nehhh" as he can't pronounce my name-- sweet thing!.. i like how one of  my good friend calls me" bongks" ( i am the bouncy one according  to her)..


okay, for those guys out there i dated before, i won't forget these ones: " nappy" ( i sleep 10 hours a day), " heart", " dawnie" and " ness".. awhh, cheesy, lol!


how about you soupers?... any favorite terms of endearment for friends here and around your own circle?... share!... anyway, it's almost valentine's!

    What an interesting blog Nette, I've enjoyed reading all the below comments, there is one that my husband gave me long ago, when he noticed my low tolerance for drinking liquor, he calls me he little drunken gypsy, in Italian, it says, "Zingera Umbriacha" I like the gypsy part as for drunk, I often act so crazy people assume I had a few drinks, well there it is, and I call him Co co Be de, cause he is a good egg, luv to you Pretty Nette xxx

    My sister and my two brothers are blonde, so, little brown hair Ruben (the spitting image of his father) was called by him: "Negrito." ......PS (just in case): In Argentina, the African population has been vanished; there are no blacks (don't ask why, it's a long and sad story). Any dark hair or skin person is called negro/a or negrito/a, this term isn't derogatory or racist.

    One of my dear friends, Robin, I refer to as "Sweet Pea" and of course "Miss Thing" herself, Cyndi MacMillan as "Cyndi Loo-Who". And, being southern, I call most all my lady friends "hon" ;)

    I was drafting a poem and got distracted by a few blogs, like this one. In time, monickers will come for friends here. Talking about special, my godmother coined something for me, Cher. It's frenchy and she had this associated with love. Most of my family began calling me so. I like this a lot; sounds so affectionate!

    I call OUR girl: Very Very (cause when she was good she was very very good and when....LOL) Before she was born, I nicknamed my belly. YUP. Gave my girl a name even before born. Called that mountain, "Muffin" a term of endearment, and above muffin was, of course, lol, muffin-top. I love terms of endearment... they are special... my grandmother called me "Princess" and as a warbride who moved to Canada, felt deeply about royalty (God save the Queen) that SHE call me this was extra special. Now? Princess means spoilt, over-indulged, perhaps whiny and/or lazy, too. But from her it meant... grace, beauty, esteem, kindness, spirit..... so I treasure that word, hear it different to others... xox
