Lovers are accustomed to giving each other curious affectionate nicknames which almost overshadow the real ones in everyday and intimate communication. We invite you to find out the best pet names for husband and wife.
Meaning of different pet names
Psychologists have identified several types of common pet nicknames that are used by lovers and spouses. The classification is based on the meanings of various objects or phenomena perceived at the subconscious level. This is a group of symbols with which it’s possible to decipher the secret code of communication and understand how a man and a woman relate to each other in fact.
1. Small pet names
These animals have teeth and claws, but in nature, they have a low degree of danger.
- Hedgehog, etc
Jung gave the largest range of qualities to a cat, from softness, seхuality to a dark “lunar” beginning, cunning, and insidious.
Name Cat is the source of the deepest seхual emotions and experiences. Therefore it shows the deep, passionate feelings for a loving partner.
Lynx and Fox are more associated with lies and even hostility. However, people are also inclined to experience aesthetic pleasure while admiring these animals, want to touch them.
It is even more difficult to touch a Hedgehog. Such name is a sign of a painful interest in a partner although more emotional than physical.
In general, this whole group of pet names for lovers unites and symbolizes the seхual intentions and desire to establish a close contact.
2. Big animals
These animals have a rather high degree of danger in nature. Sometimes they are frankly aggressive because they are predators.
- Dragon, etc
A man who likes his own nickname Bear subconsciously looks for a woman who may pacify his aggression, make him kinder. He is ready to obey her and become “plush” almost like in the arms of a little girl who kisses a bear toy at night and puts it to bed with her.
In general, the woman hugging an aggressive animal is associated with the conqueror, the tamer. If you chose such sweet names to call your husband, maybe you want to have more power over him.
3. Harmless animals
These animals do not bring any danger. The first emotion they evoke is tenderness, sometimes even pity.
- Bird, etc
Different types of birds characterize romantic, lyrical relationships or their imitation. “Rodent” is usually psychologically dependent in a couple, needs a patron and a defender or simply forced to be on the sidelines.
The weaker and more defenseless the “animal” is, the more it causes the desire to protect it, which is not always good. After all, one of the partners subconsciously disguises the desire to become a leader inventing such sweet romantic words. For example, Chicken. Such a nickname will clearly sound like a constant reminder of weakness, dependence.
Harmless little animals can talk about not equal relations or even tyranny.
