philonym n (Gr. philia, love + Gr. onuma, name; cf. synonym, pseudonym) Ð gentle name used by lovers and spouses to address each other.

Examples: honey, sweety, baby, my darling, my love, my
angel.
All philonyms are so trite and trivial. "Honey, sweetyÉ" How can love be expressed in such a routine way? I will call you
"my happicle."
