Wordy Friday

I cannot remember what I was searching at Dictionary.com today but somehow I was distracted with the question just below the search box:
What's the technical term for couples who call each other names like honey bunny?
Tada! It is called...
hypocorism [hahy-pok-uh-riz-uhm, hi-] – noun
  1. a pet name.
  2. the practice of using a pet name.
  3. the use of forms of speech imitative of baby talk, especially by an adult.
Bleghhh!  That is confusing me with hypocrite!
