    Hey boys and girls, I was just wondering if you could post how you say 'Darling' in your language since I use it to name my characters.

    I already have Elskling, Darling, Querido and Liebling.

    So enlighten me, tell me your language and how to write it and I'll use it.

    Thanks!

    Serbian: Dragi (male) Draga (female)

    Another possible german translation would be: Schatz (or even Schätzchen, using a fancy umlaut)
    perfect for a goblin (looks a bit like Schnotzz too) or a bank alt imo, because it also means treasure

    The closest thing in Japanese would be 'Koibito' which means sweetheart/lover.

    In French it's "Chérie",

    Yet I'm pretty sure google translator would have given you the answer faster than mmo-champion

    In swedish it would be "älskling" or "käresta".

    There's a lot of words for it in Finnish, but I'd say "kulta" is the closest to it (which happens to be the word for "gold" as well).
    But if you're specifically looking for ones that don't look "meh" (which is totally up to you), any of these results work just as fine: http://www.sanakirja.org/search.php?q=darling&l=3&l2=17

    In Italian you can say either "Cara", "Tesoro" or "Dolcezza".
