Endearments Parents Call Their Children

Amanda--277

Can you tell me some endearments parents call their children in Italian? (I will probably get it very wrong, but here is my attempt to ask a version of my question in Italian too.) Mi può dire che cosa genitori chiamano i loro figli con affetto?

Ciao Amanda, do you mean "darling", etc ? Every parent has got his different "nickname" of his/her kid. Here below few classical ones: darling = caro or cara princess =principessa angel = angelo little = piccolo or piccola puppy = cucciolo, cucciola star = stella little treasure = tesorino I hope this helps Ciao

Grazie Maria. That helps. Ma chiamo mia figlia "piccolina". Someone told me that was mostly used romantically. `E vero? Do mamme still call the children endearments after they are grown?

It depends on the families but "mamme" are always "mamme" :)))
