I'm joking of course!
As I was in a romantic mood today, I thought we could have a look at seven cute nicknames that you will hear Spanish people calling their girl- and boyfriends all of the time in the street.
So let’s get down to business…
Cariño… – darling
Corazón… – sweetheart
(Mi) cielo… – literally " my heaven" but in this case: "my sweetheart" or "honey".
(Mi) Amor... – love, honey
Mi vida… – my love
Preciosa… – babe, beautiful (used mostly by men to address women)
Bebé… – my little one, babe (used mostly by men to address women)
Sometimes, this sort of thing is tricky to translate since we may not have a direct translation in English. The great news about that is that you will sound
Super-Spanish because you are not translating word-for-word in your head as most students tend to do.
That’s a great hint, by the way. If ever there is more than one way to translate something, go with the one that is least like English. Then you will automatically sound more Spanish.
