Romantic Pet-names For Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner polls are often taken to decide which are the most popular pet-names used to call our spouses or partners.

A few years ago a poll organised by the charity Adopt a Word found that we’re a nation of ‘Darlings’, ‘Babes’ and ‘Loves’, but less popular names include Sweetheart, Gorgeous and Honey.

Here is that list of top ten UK romantic pet-names in full:
1. Darling
2. Babe/Baby
3. Love
4. Sweetheart
5. Gorgeous
6. Honey/Hun/Honeybunch
7. Sweetie/Sweetie pie/Sweets
8. Angel
9. Sugar/Sugarplum
10. Boo

So what are the most popular names today?
