Specifically, a pet name is not suppose to be a thing that should be copied. Rather, it should be a verbal manifestation of what your spouse is to you.
Please do not get me wrong; it is okay to use a pet name that you fancy another using especially if your spouse is to you what that pet name implies.
But using it for the sake of convention does not vibrate with romance at all.
Apart from the fact that pet names adds flavour and scent.
