    Default affectionate terms for daughter in Argentina

    What are affectionate terms a mother or father would call a daughter (like in English we'd use "darling", "honey", "sweetheart" etc"?)

    Is there anything regional about this?

    I am looking for words used in Argentina.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    Default depending on your daughter´s age...

    For little girls we can hear: "linda", "princesa", "reina", "mi amor".

    Of course, when you are not upset!! (lol)

    Any other suggestions?

    "nena" ("nene" for boys) is very common among Argentine mothers/fathers, to the point that you're ALWAYS a "nena" (girl) to them, no matter how many decades have gone by... "nenita" could apply to a very young daughter. both "nena" and "nenita" can be said in a funny/teasing way to any other girl: a sister, a friend.

    all the terms analaura suggested are affectionate and common here to address a girl/woman you like a lot, but not restricted to daughters: a girlfriend, lover or wife could be addressed like that. more? "preciosa", "muñeca", "chiquita" (for a little girl or in a loving-teasing manner).
