Don't ever call her this...not even in a joking way. I don't see how anyone could suggest this and think it was funny. Polish girls do NOT take such names lightly even if it is clearly a joke.

Anybody knows, what gipziara means?

It should be "gipsiara", not "gipziara" and definitely never be used to call a woman you like. A pejorative name to call a girl, I guess comes from "gips" = "plaster", which means she is wearing makeup as heavy and thick as a plaster.

Do you mean those?

try the regular ones first: żabko, kotku, rybko, kwiatuszku.

my husband calls me aniolek... and i love it :)

Well, all of them are diminutive forms, in the Vocative case.
żabko - little frog,
kotku - kitty? (little cat),
rybko - little fish,
kwiatuszku - little flower
aniołku (aniołek is Nominative case) - little angel.

There's also "misiu" (little bear, teddy bear) - I hate it, but I've heard many couples using it.

Gwiazdeczko - little star

OK probably a stupid question here I know of most of the above but why in the translations above are they all little? I thought there was another word in front to make it little, like moja?

It's the ending of the word that makes it "a little" (for example -ko). In Polish much more things are determined by which ending being used on the word than in English. Moja means "my" (for nouns of feminine gender in the nominative case).

The words above are used as "nicknames". But in normal language if you see a small cat on the street you say "mały kot", in this case the word mały (=small) determines that it's a small cat.

from ewa actually it goes to ewka

aleksandra goes to ola and not aleksandraku...

can people that are posting BS be banned by the moderators?

i mean, someone can really believe that it is good to call her girlfriend "cipko"
and then she will get offended and will not speak to him anymore...

such stupid jokes are not allright at all

I want to be able to call her "my beautiful enigma". Or "My shining star".

Also, I don't speak much Polish yet and don't know how to pronounce any of the words above. Could someone write a few of the phonetically?

My Polish husband refers to our daughter as "moya myszka," and in english my pet name is baby or sunshine. Interesting, that he doesn't have a polish nick name for me? He believes that this is the most endearing. I'm curious- he seems to and I've seen his family use his name in different ways and end his name with (tius), women's names seem to end in "ao". My name is unique and it doesn't translate in Polish. This is also, interesting because in US, your name is your name-no translation. For name day-my children have requested a polish calendar which translates their name. I like the fact, that this website shows this at top of page. It was funny last night my son got a new hat (it looks like a hunting,long straps around ears,from his dad) and my husband was calling him Andruszka. So, I have no polish pet name and my name doesn't translate in Polish? Whatever, one calls you close to you is special.

It sounds very weird translated into English but in Polish it actually sounds very cute.

Hehe one of my friends even calls me "robaczku" which means litle worm, and as weird and insulting as that sounds in English, it sounds cute in Polish.

On the other hand if you were to translate the English way of saying "Hunny" to your gf or bf ... that would sound very weird in Polish

What does cipko mean in english?
I understand now it's an offense, but I can't find it in my dictionary or in google translation D:

Please explain to me, and I agree that if someone asks something seriously like a petname, is too abusive to post a bad word that may actually offend someone.

I hope you answer.

My best regards to everyone truly helping people like me :D
