Note: OP originally had "snukums".


I believe it is a pet name (nickname for loved one).

snookums
noun
sweetheart; a term of endearment
Usage Note
informal

It's a term of endearment you might use for a pet or a loved one.

Similar names include

  • Pumpkin
  • Honey bear
  • Boo/Boo-boo
  • Cuddly-wuddly
  • Cutie pie

  • Snookums can also be used when making fun of someone for complaining about a hurt that isn't very bad in the grand scheme of things. You say, "Oh, snookums!" and roll your eyes. – Erin Jan 24 at 1:40
