Pet Names (3)


What are some common pet names these days ?   Read on !

Boys can be called "handsome", "lover", "McDreamy", "love machine" or even "Tiger". (Not the golf player !)

Girls might be called "sweetpea", "angel", "sexy","doll", and of course, "baby".

People sometimes call each other very silly names, which can sound quite annoying to other people.

Some examples for both men and women include:"Munchkin", "funny bunny", "num-num", "love bug", or "pumpkin".

Terms used for cute animals (bunny), foods (sweet pie) or characters from animation (Pooh bear from "Winnie the Pooh") are very popular.

And by the way, the word "baby" has also come to be used as an exclamation for any topic, as in "world champions, baby !" Which might be used by a sports fan talking about his team...                                   (G.K)
