10 Most Romantic Yoruba Words You Can Use As Pet Name For Bae

Romantic Yoruba Words You Can Use As Pet Name For Bae

Love is a beautiful thing.

We may advise everyone to be sure they want a relationship before going into one, but having someone who is always there for you makes life so much easier. If you have a “babe” or a bobo, the norm is to give them sweet nicknames like honey, sweetie, sugar boo and the like.

If you’re someone who doesn’t like the conventional pet names out there, here are some romantic Yoruba words you can use as a pet name for your other half:

1. Ife mi

This means “my love” and can be used for both a bobo and sisi.

2. Ododo mi

Guys, if you think your bae is super precious to you, calling her “my flower” will convey that to her.

3. Onitemi

No word says “mine” in a romantic way like Onitemi.

4. Ololufe

If your bae is your only lover, then “ololufe” is the pet name to use. You can even use Wande Coal’s Olulufe as your bae’s special ringtone!

5. Ayanfe

When you have chosen to love someone with all your heart, Ayanfe is the perfect pet name for them.

6. Arewa

Is your girlfriend/wife the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Then you can nickname her Arewa.

7. Aya mi

Forget the Iyawo wa that Yoruba demons and their friends have corrupted. Go for Aya mi which means “my wife”.

8. Olowo ori mi

Ladies, thrill your man by calling him “olowo ori mi”. You’re basically calling him the one who paid your brideprice aka husband. If you call your boyfriend this, he will just take the hint!

9. Orekelewa

There is a beauty that surpasses all other beauties. If your girl is in this class, then Orekelewa would be the perfect pet name for her.

10. Ade ori mi

Sometimes when you start dating someone, everything in your life falls into place. If this is you, then the best pet name for your blessing aka partner is ade ori mi (my crown).

If you have other pet yoruba names you call your bae or Bobo you can kindly drop them.
