I've never really given them pet names, except for Gloria, who I called 'fatty' sometimes. She was a huge pig.

All the boys have been called, at some point, "Buddy" or "Budster" or "Lil' Guy" . Morpheus is Morph and Alexander is sometimes Alex. Then I always call the girls "Girlie" (so original lol).

Just to add my other pets, Conrad (dog) is "Con-riaad", Abby (dog) is "Abster" and the two of them together are the Pupsqueaks. Magic (cat) is "Madge" and Charlie (cat) is "Char-char" or "Sir Edmund Hillary" because he likes to climb (and also "Mud" when he's in trouble lol!)

I have some horse nicknames I wanna share too, sorry! April is "Ape" (she's a girl ;P ), Traveler is "Trav", Colby is "Colbster", Cooper the mule is "Coop the Loop" (IDK why), Jupiter is "Jupitiblur", Blaze is "Fuzzbutt" or "Fuzzball", Saab is "Saabey", Zoey is "Zo-zo", Sunny is "SunBun", Declan is "Decky", Salona is "Lona bear" and Louie is "Louis", "Killer", "(Sir) Crazy horse" and "STOP ALREADY!" (lol)

Sorry these aren't just my fish, but....the title does say "Your PET's pet names" so....

Mine aren't affectionate. Just short versions of their names I use as it's easier lol.

Massacro I call Acro
Romulus I call Rome (Cookies to anyone who understands the deeper meaning c:)
And I have yet to name my newest fish.

I'm affectionate, just not in a baby-talk way. I talk to them but not usually baby talk. More like talking to a toddler lmao. /weird

Well, for some strange reason, all my pets ended up with names that start with the letter B (Buttercup, Bailey, Brandee, Blossom, Brittany) so of course, my female crowntail is called Brooke!
