Names Women Hate

Listening to the radio on the way to a recent appointment, I learned that a recent study examined and categorized the variety of names that men call their women.

The study claims that 1 of every 6 men call her "Boss."  It also claims that 1 of every 14 men call her their "Ball and Chain."

The study also revealed the top ten pet names that women hate to be called.  I must admit I found myself thinking about terms of endearment I have been called by my husband, and which of those I liked or not.  And no, I'm not telling you what he calls me.  Seventeen horses cannot drag it out of me.

Anyway, here are the top ten pet names women HATE to be called.  

#10 - Pudding

#9 - Sexy pants

#8 - Baby girl

#7 - Ducky

#6 - Muffin

#5 - Baby doll

#4 - Baby cakes

#3 - Snookums

#2 - Sweet cheeks

And the pet name that women hate more than any other name:

#1 - Babe

I would be interested to hear the other side of the research, that is, what pet names men are called and hate.
How about you?  
Do you have a pet name?


  1. We prefer to use each other's names over any pet names. We DESPISE it when we hear people call their significant other "Babe." However, we do have a couple that we use very sparingly. Lucky for us, they are not on the list!

  2. Shouldn't you add to that list, if she is single: she would not like to be called pregnant?

  3. I often endearingly refer to eric as...well, i won't tell you lol. I personally don't mind being called babe or baby, actually I like it so there. Rachel

  4. My husband and I routinely call each other "babe" and I don't mind at all, or more than likely it just end up being...hey you.

    Love the blog!!!
