List of Thedosian pet names for writing and roleplaying, brought to you by Bella

We can skip trade tongue and go right into the big three: Antivan, Orlesian, and Tevene.

I’m going to start with Tevene, cos it’s my fave. The main thing to remember is that female pet names end in -a, and others end in -us. The famous amatus actually is amata if you are addressing a woman. Here’s a few more from Latin. It’s not a language with a lot of pet names. I did my best.

  • mellitus/mellita: honeyed one, aka honey (this one is my fave)
  • carissimus/carissima: dearest one, aka dear
  • deliciae: darling
  • venustus/venusta: sweet
  • lepidus/lepida: cute

Orlesian is easy. French is brimming with pet names and terms of endearment. Here are my faves.

  • mon cœur: my heart, my love
  • mon chaton: my kitten
  • mignon: cute
  • doudou: tricky to translate!! i had trouble putting this in english with my cajun ass lmao. basically it’s a security blanket or snuggle buddy. trust me on this one. it’s cuter in french. it’s also my fave.
  • ma moitié: my other half
  • mon loulou: another weird one. doesn’t really MEAN anything. it’s just cutesy.
  • ma chèrie: my darling (f)
  • ma chère: my dear (f)
  • bichette: little doe (f)
  • colombe: dove (f)
  • ma lutine: my elf or pixie (f)

Antivan is tricky. I prefer it as Italian, but most seem to prefer Spanish. Here’s a few of Italian anyway. Some of them are the same in both languages, which makes it easier. I admit i had help with this one, as I don’t speak Italian fluently.

  • caro/cara: dear
  • carino/carina: cute
  • gattino/gattina: kitten
  • cucciolo/cucciola: puppy
  • dolcezza: sweetheart
  • grillo/grilla: cricket
  • bambola/bambolina: doll, little doll
  • ciccia/cicci: sweet, tasty
  • streghetta mia: my little witch. personal fave
  • bonus: add -ino or -ina to a name to make it ‘little.’ example: Zevranino = little Zevran

These are just a FEW but I hope they are helpful, feel free to use.
