Pet names

First off, thanks to everyone who answered my question about icons, I shall answer, and it was a most interesting read. Now *pauses dramtically* I have another question or rather questions :) about Pet names. I know this has been discussed before, but there's nothing like rehashing old discussions ::g::

It occured to me as I climbed out of the car today, turned to my husband and said "Bye, have a nice day, beloved." that I rarely call him by his given name. I found myself doing it over the weekend at the con when telling him how the pictures were coming out: "Watch the brightness, sweetie." etc.

Now this made me ask myself how long I had been doing this, had I actually forgotten his name, and what did he call me? Then I thought about it in fic and how you don't see a lot of pet names and when you do it drives some people to distraction.

So to my questions:
1) How long do you think a relationship should have been going before pet names are acceptable?
2) Are there any characters you are possitive would not use pet names, ever?
3) What kind of pet names can you put up with and will one more Harry calling Draco "Dray" make you want to leap of the nearest high building?
4) Anything else you'd like to say?

Thanks in advance for your input.
