These Cheesy Nicknames Are Not So Romantic Once You Translate Them To English

If your parents or abuelos are extra romantic, then chances are you’ve heard them call each other by these corny Spanish nicknames. But once you type these nicknames onto Google Translate… well, they’re not so romantic anymore.



Check out the random, hilarious translations Google gave us for these nicknames:

Latinos use “vieja” as a sweet nickname for a long-term partner. ?????

Love her to death!! ?#mivieja

A post shared by omiesayar (@omiesayar) on


The nicknames “vieja” and “viejo” represent the idea that you two are going to grow old together.?

But once you look it up on Google translate…

Well…just doesn’t sound so sweet anymore. LOL

Some couples also like to call each other “gordo” or “gorda.” ?

Con mi guaton #amordelbueno #migordo #iloveyou

It just doesn’t get more affectionate than “mi gordo”.

Even though “gordo” is a cute nickname in Spanish, it doesn’t sound so cute in English:

Let’s see how your boyfriend or girlfriend reacts when you call them fat. “Hey fat, can you come over here a second?”

Some guys like to call their girlfriends “güera”.

"Ivan borra la foto salgo bien fea.." *comienzan los golopes* #TeAmo #MiGüera #TeAdoro

It’s one of the most common nicknames.

But Google translate gives you the name of a city in Germany. ?

This entiiiiire time guys have been calling their girls the name of a city in Germany. So romantic.

For the fellas that have short girlfriends or wives, there’s the nickname: “chaparra.” ❤️

#bae #goals #girlfriend #loveu #michaparra ????????❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

A post shared by Alan_Drums (@alan_drums97) on


Basically, if you’re shorter than 5’5″, then you qualify as a “chaparra.” And the same goes for guys.

But Google translate couldn’t even find a translation for this word.

chaparra 01

An accurate translation would be “shawty” or “lil mama”.

Alternatives for petite significant others are “chiquitita” or “chiquitito.”


Similar to the nickname “baby girrrrl”- “chiquitita” is the perfect nickname to use when your significant other is looking mighty fine.

But the Google translation is a bit of a turn-off.

*crinnnnge*

Some couples use the nickname “loquito mío” when they’re joking around, being careless and silly.

? #fili #loquitomio ?

So when your significant other says something wild and silly, you can use the nickname “loquito mío”- similar to “my crazy/silly baby”.

But Google translate didn’t quite get that…

loquito mío 01

“My little thing”???

When someone wants to show off their sexy boyfriend or husband, they use the nickname “papi lindo.” ?


Because #mcm is too basic.

And Google translate wasn’t too far off with this one. ?

papi lindo 01

Yup, “daddy” is a common bf/husband nickname.

Couples that are extra cheesy enjoy using nicknames like “bon bon.” ?

my sweetie pie, my other half! i love you to the moon and back, babe!!! ??? #mypuzzlepiece #mibonbon

A post shared by ??????? ?? (@heartovermind) on


Pitbull actually has a song called “bon bon”… but he doesn’t use the nickname in a cheesy way. ?

This time Google translate changed the language from Spanish to Arabic… but still didn’t have a translation.

Google translate really is entertaining…

Another cheesy nickname to add to the list is: “mis ojitos.”

#cachetes #ojitos #adidas ?

A post shared by Liliana (@lmab1185) on


If you’ve seen the movie “Monsters Inc.” the nickname “googly eyes” is just like the nickname “mis ojitos.”

If only Google translate had given us the translation “googly eyes.”

ojitos 01

*sigh*

When couples are feeling extra romantic, they call each other nicknames like “mi cosita.”

Sorpresa de aniversario ??#aniversario#3#micosita gracias por la sorpresa, detalles que enamoran…

A post shared by Fabian Medina (@fai029) on


But if you’re not a cheesy person, then you might not feel so comfortable with the nickname “mi cosita”… like this guy above.?

But it seems like Google translate really loves the word “little.”

mi cosita 01

Someone please tell Google that “little thannnng” would sound better as a couple’s nickname.

Can’t forget about the couples that are sooo deeply in love. They probably have a thousand nicknames for each other, one of them being “corazón de melón.”

#10años and counting ? love you ? #corazondemelon

A photo posted by Pita (@sunpita) on


This couple is what you would call: “los enamorados”.

But it doesn’t sound so romantic in English. ?

Latinas Say Don’t Get Married Until You’ve Confirmed These Things

Latinas Say Don’t Get Married Until You’ve Confirmed These Things

Hulton Archive / Getty

When it comes to getting married, just about everyone has opinions and advice. Of course, while input on dos and don’ts of considering marriage can be overwhelming, they’re also so important to listen. Recently, we came across a Tweet by Twitter user @cxkenobxkery⁠ who posted a thread called “Don’t get married before…” We reposted the question and asked our FIERCE readers what advice they had for other Latinas who were considering marriage and the answers were pretty eye-opening.

So here goes, if you’re thinking about getting married consider pumping the breaks unless you’ve…

Worked out your parenting styles

Too strict? Too soft? Balance and teamwork is crucial. It comes down to what kid of little humans do you BOTH want to raise.” – ramfamfour

Discussed mental health stuff

“ANY mental health issues. My ex husband was not verbally or physically abusive, but his mental health issues were at the core of our marriages demise. I would also add to pay attention to how compatible you are when the ‘feeling’ of being in love isn’t tinting your glasses. He hated new foods and I loved to cook. He didn’t understand hyperbole, sarcasm, analogy, humor, etc. And those are all native to me. Otherwise, this is a great list.” – dinneronmylap

Learned how you plan to grow together

“I think asking how a person plans to continuously seek knowledge during their lifetime is important.” – lachullavida

Have underlined your boundaries

“Speak about the boundaries you plan on having with your families as you create one of your own. TRUST ME, you don’t want a spouse who doesn’t know or understand how important this is. Nobody wants their in laws overstepping. If their parents or yours are doing this now, it will only get worse once you are married and it will create so much drama. People have divorced over this.” – taialvarez

Talked about credit scores

“And CREDIT SCORE, family health history, twins?”- liani9

Seen them when they’re angry

“Other tips: See how this person reacts when angry, see how this person treats strangers, see how this person faces a difficult dilemma. This will tell you a lot about a person.” –mariar09_

Have self-appreciation on both sides

“Don’t get married before you truly know, love and have appreciation for yourself.”- moni.gram

Know their family

“You absolutely need to know about family, how they were raised and around who… she’s wrong on that one.”- your_phoenix_

Have the age experience

“Don’t even THINK about it until you’re in your 30s.” – arlee_la

Sorted out cleaning habits

“The cleanings habits.” – nancyesquivel

Know how their parents fight

“Parenting / disciplining! Questions about in laws expectations. Alone time vs quality time – are you someone who needs a lot of time away or close to your partner? How fairly do you fight? How did your parents fight growing up? How do you negotiate with one another?” – melmor

Lived on your own

“The best thing I did for myself: Live away from family. I had a whole year to live with roommates and I learned so mhch about myself. If at all possible, consider doing this!!!” – dj_enamoured

Asked how their prior relationship ended

“Always ask how the prior relationship ended, been almost marry for 5 years and I never asked and I found out that he got 7 women pregnant and all of them got an abortion, also ask about mental health issues with the family I never did and found out his mother was bipolar without treatment now I know why he is the way he is cause he is bipolar… I thought things would changed but nothing has changed and don’t marry a men that has a lot of guy friends cause his priority are his friends… Yes I know don’t need to tell me to get divorce I m already working on it.” – suequte_yoginyc

Figured out how to spend time alone and apart

“Date/Outing expectations – is one a home-body vs outdoorsy? This made for some very uncomfortable situations for both if us in a prior relationship. Would lead to full on arguments. But if both aren’t comfortable with group dates or don’t consider a quiet dinner at home as romantic then someone is going to become resentful.” – rosanam1978

Been genetically tested

“On having children, it best to get a gene-carrier (gene disease testing) before marriage. It makes me so angry when hearing that married couple… MARRRIED, do it after marriage. What if both of them are carriers? Then having a kid with their gene disease is on its way, if they have 1 biological.” – officialdarlin

FIERCE LGBTQ Couples Are Sharing How They Met And It’s The Sweetest Thing

Charles McQuillan / Getty

As we highlight Pride month, we wanted to share beautiful stories of LGBTQ+ love. To do so, we recently asked our FIERCE readers on Instagram to tell us how they met their partners and the results were not only hilarious but deeply inspiring.

Love is love and we love this kind of love.

Check it out!

The old slide in trick.

“I slid into the DMs.” – joanacanna

On their start to being ~educated latinas~

“My girlfriend and I met at the end of our first year of law school. She would say that I curved her for a few months before we became close. Almost three years later, we are both attorneys and looking forward to where life takes us.” – legalricanmujer

These two lovers who met while pushing for a joint interest

“We met in boot camp! 10 years ago (we’ve been together 2 /1/2 years, married 1 yr.” –hey_itsaj18

Chicas who started out on the same path and stuck together.

“We met in Nursing school we graduated together. That was 4 years ago, she’s a psychiatric nurse and I’m a geriatric nurse.” – m_a_r_i_a__j_o_h_a_n_n_a

They found love in a pandemic place.

Love in the time of Corona, thanks to Hinge!” – bienvenidarealidad__

Turns out the internet is the ultimate matchmaker.

“On the HER app. The same day she liked my profile she ended up coming into my job. I saw her but she didn’t see me. I ended up messaging her that night when I got off of work & we have been inseparable ever since. 3 years later and everyday I fall in love with her over & over again.” – _yourfavoritepoet_

And this is the most hilarious one of all.

“My wife @chulaworldand I were both seeing the same guy (total 🐶) …… so when we found out about each other we met up! And we have LITERALLY been inseparable ever since. Married on 4/20/19.” –bunuelitas
