There’s the “old ball and chain,” “the old lady,” and my personal favorite “she who must be obeyed.” However, a Saudi Arabian woman has filed for divorce after discovering the nickname that her husband gave her on his cellphone: “Guantanamo.”

Of course, Guanatanamo is also a sunny place on a beautiful island. Besides, even good marriages have a degree of sleep derivation and stress positions. The waterboarding comes later.
For my recently or soon-to-be married students, here is a list of non-actionable pet names:
Here are the generally prohibited pet names:
The Dark Lord
Angel of Death

Sloppy writing. BOO.
Not literate enough.
