Love names are those little nicknames that make your heart melt. Using pet names like Snookums, Sweetie-Pie, Honey Bunch, Smoochie-Girl, Lovey or Pookey-Poo is like sharing a special, heartfelt secret. Love names tell your child that you enjoy her company – that she is extra special and this is the name you use for only her.

Love is silence when your words would hurt,
It’s patience when your neighbor’s curt.
It’s deafness when the scandal flows,
It’s thoughtfulness for another’s woes.
It’s promptness when stern duty calls,
It’s courage when misfortune falls.
We pray for silver, but God often gives us gold instead.
— Martin Luther

— Mother Teresa
