Using Terms of Endearment as Pet Names

Terms of Endearment for people can work well as pet names. People have called their significant others as well as their children and others by sweet nicknames forever.

Giving your pet a name such as Bunny, Dearheart, Honey, or Wookums is common. Many owners bestow a formal name but end up calling their pet by a term of endearment most of the time anyhow.
