We've been trying to come up with good romantic nicknames. It isn't as easy as it sounds. Most of the lists lying around online are rather dull. Here's what we've got so far:

  • Chuckle-cheeks.
  • Goose-bumps.
  • Pookie-snooks.
  • Poptart.
  • Jiggles McJiggypants.
  • Twinkle-toes.
  • Nuzzle-nose.
  • Snoopy.
  • Poopy.
  • Snugglepuss.
  • Dumble-dear.
  • Fox-trot.
  • Sweetmeat.
  • Happy-feet.
  • Fishbreath (use only if you can say it lovingly enough to distract from its actual meaning).

We've obviously got a lot of work to do.

The good people at have the following suggestion for making romantic pet names:

Mix up the syllables "pook," "wee," "hon," "oop," and "ums," (never use the syllables "skuzz" or "elch"), rhyme a lot, and make liberal references to baked goods. [...] "Sweetie Pumpkin Pookums" is a perfectly acceptable and effective pet name, as are "Moopsie Cutie," "Hunny Wunny Cakes," and, for the extravagant, "Snookie Wookum Weetie Bunny Pie." (It may seem odd to novices that cooked rodents would be romantic, but they are.)

They've even provided a handy pet name generator to help you come up with a name for your... err... Wuggywoogledumpling.
