I know Valentine’s Day is long past but I came across this really cute article on Swiss German pet names and thought I would share it. I don’t speak a lick of German but I find these so amusing!

Slap on a -li suffix to any animal name (in German) and you’ve got yourself a term of endearment for your Swiss German-speaking honey!

Remember: Don’t confuse müsli with müesli. It could mean the difference between “my little mouse” and “my nutritious breakfast meal,” the latter not being as romantic as the former.
