I have been called a little owl, a swan and even a “panda-fish.” No, I’m not a supernatural, shape-shifting creature or a character in a children’s storybook.

I’ve just been in a few relationships where cutesy, affectionate nicknames emerged as inside jokes.

Heck, even couples who promise themselves that they’ll never use sappy pet names usually use them eventually anyway!

And here’s a warning: far too often, those cheesy pet names aren’t ones that we choose for ourselves.

These names stuck around for months, even years – to the point where hearing “Elizabeth” or “Liz” in certain contexts would suggest a truly serious situation, or that I was in trouble.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I got to thinking about terms of endearment and about the world of interpersonal language that romantic partners develop just for themselves.

Sometimes we just have to loosen up a little bit, shrug our shoulders and learn to love whatever cutesy name our lover decides is best suited to us.
