Re: Need suggestions for pet name for D to call Georgiana

Hate to be a nuisance, but no bananas or peanuts in Regency England. This sounds really modern and a bit transatlantic.
As a member of the aristocracy, he will speak French fluently, and might call her 'ma Fleur' or even 'Flower', 'Mignonette', 'Mignon', 'Ma mie'. Possibly 'Fleurette', 'Chouette' 'Choufleur', all these are common French endearments of some antiquity. Ma mie is a little old fashioned by the Regency.

If you have any associations with German aristocrats, a relationship even if distant to the Hanoverians, 'Voglein', 'Katschen' or 'Blumchen' [Birdling, Kitty-cat, little bloom]

I suspect that most names will be from the nursery, and could be derived from Georgiana trying to say her own name, so
'Geegee' is a strong contender [I think that was suggested?] or 'Jojo'. Equally, Kitten, Pusskin etc. Or pick a nursery rhyme of suitable antiquity like 'Little Miss Muffet' and call her 'Miss Muffet' or just 'Muffet' if Darcy ever rescued her from spiders when she was younger.
