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…

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. ?

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.”

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. ?

Vanessa Bryant Said It Was ‘Love At First Sight’ When She First Met Kobe

Vanessa Bryant Said It Was ‘Love At First Sight’ When She First Met Kobe

Vanessa Bryant says love at first sight is very real.

The wife of the late NBA great recently revealed that it happened to her the very first time she met Kobe Bryant 21 years ago.

Over the weekend, Bryant shared a photo of her and the former LA Laker while visiting Disneyland.

Last Friday, Bryant celebrated the 21st anniversary of the day she and Kobe met. She captioned the Instagram post writing “Love at first sight 11/27/99 #21.”

Vanessa and Kobe met in 1999 during a music video shoot while she was still in high school and he was 20 years old. The couple became engaged when she turned 18, announced their engagement at her 18th birthday party, and the Bryants married in April 2001.

In 2013, Kobe shared a picture of the day they met on Instagram.

“On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my mamacita per sempre,” Kobe wrote in the Instagram post at the time.

After their 2001 message, Kobe and Vanessa had four daughters together, Natalia, 17, Gianna, 13, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 1. Tragically, in January, Bryant and Gianna passed away in a helicopter crash alongside seven others.

Last year, Kobe also reflected on the day he met his “best friend,” posting a throwback pic along with the Disneyland snap.

“On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant,” he captioned his post at the time. “I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my mamacita per sempre.”

It’s not the first time Vanessa honored her husband since his death. In October, the former model and philanthropist honored her husband and daughter with tattoos.

Speaking about her loss, Vanessa’s friend La La Anthony told Entertainment Today that she’s done her best to stay strong.

“Well, you know, I’m a real friend, that’s what friends do,” Anthony told ET in September. “You know, you don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard. And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that, you know, I can’t even fathom what that feels like. So, just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing. But that’s what friends do for each other, you know, so I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just, you know, want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”

The ‘How It Started’ Memes Are Filled With The Funny And Wholesome Content We All Need In 2020

@xolei3 / Twitter

It is not a lie to say that 2020 has been a year of disappointment and high-stress scenarios. We’ve had to quarantine from a virus, wildfires are destroying a lot of land, and well, everything else going on has just made things worse. Fortunately, on Twitter trend is giving everyone a chance to see that things can get better.

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone but one Twitter trend is making life a little better.

We’ve all seen the “How It Started” memes taking over social media in recent weeks. The memes are both funny and inspirational with some showing some amazing glow ups and others showing the crushing reality of everyday life. We have all felt like the man crying over 2020 at some point over the last 7 months. It’s like this year just doesn’t stop.

Relationships are a big part of this meme trend.

Oof. This is painful and so many of us know this to be true. 😭 Sure, we can all blame our relationship woes on the current state of the world. However, that would just be doing a disservice to ourselves and our love lives. Most of us who are single now have been single for a very long time pre-Covid. But, hey, no one knows that you’re lying if you blame Covid.

A few wonderful people highlighted their transition into their true selves.

Stunning. Show-stopping. Magnificent. We love to see it. There is nothing better to see in this world than someone living their authentic truth. Like, go and do your thing. Slay all of the hearts you see, honey, and take no prisoners. We are all better in their world to be surrounded by people living in complete honesty.

The Lil Nas X joined in on the fun and highlighted his own meteoric rise to fame.

The “Old Town Road” singer really did make a big name for himself. Not only did his song get made into a duet and remix with every artist imaginable, he beat Mariah Carey’s record. Lil Nas X went from someone that no one knew to unseating Mariah Carey for longest time spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

There are some very clever takes on this meme.

So, like, who else feels like they are being personally attacked by this meme? College might have been years ago but these memories linger. Tequila is just one of those things that so many of use have to learn the hard way and those lessons stick with you.

Simone Biles gave us one of the most memorable glow ups of the meme challenge.

Simone Biles is one of the most legendary women to ever walk this planet. The way she was able to make herself known around the world as the best gymnast is no short feat. She is and will always be one of the best women to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.
