Love is a beautiful thing.
We may advise everyone to be sure they want a relationship before going into one, but having someone who is always there for you makes life so much easier. If you have a “babe” or a bobo, the norm is to give them sweet nicknames like honey, sweetie, sugar boo and the like.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like the conventional pet names out there, here are some romantic Yoruba words you can use as a pet name for your other half:
1. Ife mi
This means “my love” and can be used for both a bobo and sisi.
2. Ododo mi
Guys, if you think your bae is super precious to you, calling her “my flower” will convey that to her.
No word says “mine” in a romantic way like Onitemi.
