You Can Call Me Gorgeous!

I wrote briefly about Terms of Endearment but my article doesn’t have the depth of data that was discovered by Siteopia.com. MSN summarized the information Siteopia.com discovered after interviewing 2,000 British individuals between 18 and 60. Only one in five call their significant other by his/her first name. That means that 80 percent use pet names. The short version of the article is many people don’t want you to call them Babe.

Here is a list of most disliked and liked names.

Top 20 Most Hated Pet Names For Women:

  1. Babe
  2. Sweet cheeks
  3. Snookums
  4. Baby doll
  5. Baby girl
  6. Muffin
  7. Ducky
  8. Baby cakes
  9. Sexy pants
  10. Pudding
  11. Muffin
  12. Angel pie
  13. Pumpkin
  14. Puppy
  15. Sugar lips
  16. Treacle (a type of syrup in the UK)
  17. Baby
  18. Pickle
  19. Honeybun
  20. Sugar pie

Ah, you could definitely call me Babe over Sweet cheeks, Snookums, Baby doll, Baby girl, Ducky, Baby cakes, Sexy Pants, Pudding, Muffin, Angel pie, Puppy, Treacle (sorry no offense, but it sounds like a disease) and Pickle.  Sheesh, what were these people thinking? Here are two oldies for those who are with me on the Babe endearment.

They did it right as far as what they liked to be called.  I have no problem, no problem at all with someone calling me Gorgeous.

    We have nicknames for each other. In fact, my name is a nickname. Maggie is short for Magdalena. Since most people butcher my real name I always give everyone my nickname.
