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

The good people at rinkworks.com 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.)

French pet names

If you can do the accent, pretty much any phrase in French sounds like a great nickname. Just start with "mon petit" / "ma petite" ("my little", masculine and feminine form respectively), and add basically anything you find in a French dictionary. Some suggestions:

Ok, so there's just the one bizarre suggestion so far, but it merited a list of its own. (update) Now there's a second one, so the plural form has become accurate. Hooray for the internets! (update) Three!

Do you have any suggestions?
