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

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.” ?

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 ????????❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

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.

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…

“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. ?

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 ?

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.”

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

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

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

Kobe Bryant Left Vanessa A Love Letter And She Just Found It Yesterday, The Day Before Her Birthday

It’s been nearly five months since the tragic death of NBA great Kobe Bryant and his similarly talented daughter Gianna. Grief still lingers for their loved ones left behind however and recently, Vanessa Bryant was reminded of her tragic loss once more as she was forced to celebrate her own birthday without her late husband and daughter.

Still, despite their noted absence on her big day, Bryant was given an emotional surprise that, while bitter, seemed very sweet.

On May 5th, Bryant celebrated her birthday and shared a special surprise from her day on Instagram.

In a post to her Instagram page, Bryant revealed that before her birthday, she found an envelope addressed to her and from her late husband.

“Yesterday I found an envelope labeled To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi I waited to open one more letter on my birthday. It gave me something to look forward to today. The irony is that Kobe had a photo of me drawn with an Angel holding me up by an artist on the cover. Missing the Love of my Life and my sweet little Mamacita- my fellow Taurus. Grateful to wake up to my 3 sweet girls today. Wish we were all together,” she wrote in the caption.

Bryant kept the message left behind for her private, but we can only imagine how emotional her experience in reading it was.

Bryant’s surprising post comes just a few days after she celebrated her deceased daughter Gigi’s birthday. In a caption about her birthday, Bryant encouraged Instagramers to “consider wearing red, caption an act of kindness or show how you will play Gigi’s way since she always gave everything she did her all and led with kindness.” She also asked fans to use the hashtag #PlayGigisWay to join in celebrating her daughter while also sharing an image of a special bracelet with her daughter’s nickname on it. “We are in the process of making this bracelet available for proceeds to benefit our Mamba and Mambacita foundation. I will update you with a post when we have them available for purchase),” she wrote.

Latinas Talk: Breaking Up And Sticking It Out During Quarantine

@maria_uve_ / Instagram

Whether quarantine has brought you and your boo closer together, broken the relationship or brought out some ugly, we all know that Quarantining while in a relationship isn’t totally ideal. After all, when the option of getting space away from each other is off the table certain aspects of your relationship can seem more dire and troubling. We asked Latinas on our Instagram page what dating has like been during the Coronavirus and boy did they deliver!

How are you managing your relationship with your s/o right now?

Are you quarantining together or separately? How is the distance affecting your relationship?⁠

Check out the answers to our a questions below!

Dealing with long-distance

“I’m in a long-distance relationship but the uncertainty of when will we be able to make it to each other’s country is killing me.” — chaser.of.wonders

When the relationship just got started

“We’ve been dating since November and we are each in our own homes. So the skin hunger is real. I’m out of work but he is still working because construction is considered en essential service. It feels like we’ve missed relationship milestones on one hand, but have been together way longer because the situation has made time feel eternal. Some days are good and I feel like we are super connected and some days, if he’s too busy or my anxiety is high or we keep missing each others calls, it feels like we are drifting apart. Overall we are just doing the best we can and working on communication.” —angiebsantana

Facetime for lovers

“FaceTime has been a lifesaver and we send each other food through uber eats or online shop for them to be surprised the next morning and that kinda thing. We maintain date nights and watch a movie through FaceTime. It’s been hard we only live 30 min away but our love language is physical touch so I mailed him one of my shirts that smells like me and he sent me one of his hoodies to help me out during these times. ❤️ kept the love alive.” — okaykat96

You could be closer than ever

“Quarantined together and we’ve grown closer spiritually, emotionally and more in love than ever before.” —gelseyes

Heartbreak hurts but it also means growth

“He said he needed distance from me.. and we were quarantined apart 😐 so we broke up.” — natmrte

Do nie things for eachother and together

“We will have been a couple for 7 years this August (married for 1.5) and this is the most time we’ve ever spent together bc we have had opposite work schedules our entire relationship. It’s been awesome. I get to see him when I wake up and he sees me when he wakes up. We make meals together, have done bike rides around the block, watched all kinds of movies etc.”–_hi_rose_

Communication is KEY

“Stronger 💞 we have been communicating more than ever. We both have busy schedules even during quarantine but manage to check in throughout the day.”–wanderess.v
