A lovely couple I know use 'rabbit'. I've always liked that but can't steal it.

Call my DH 'love' mainly. Also call him 'Homer' as it is our surname. Or just use his, uh, actual name...

sjuperwolef Sun 11-Sep-11 15:45:25

ooh yeah forgot the more traditional names - darling and sweetheart smile and 'my pair wee babby/babba' when he is being pathetic wants sympathy

AKissIsNotAContract Sun 11-Sep-11 15:46:46

douchebag gets used a lot in our house.

RoyalWelsh Sun 11-Sep-11 15:48:45

In the beginning when we still liked each other DP used to call me poppet, which I liked.

Thumbwitch Sun 11-Sep-11 15:52:06

darling is our usual
DH also uses Pumpky (short for pumpkin) which I have tried and failed to stop him doing for many years now - he does it to wind me up but I have given up caring that he calls me a large round orange fruit. <sigh>
sometimes "Husband!" as his name is like mine, all soft letters and nothing to get your teeth into when I'm yelling loudly for him to come and scrub my back...
