I'm leaning towards the Dutch expression "robust pleasure source" - but actually he doesn't care what I call him, as long as I call him. Last night he told me the expressions in Japanese and Hebrew - both of which seem chummy and companionably and tender and endearing and beloved-sounding. English does seem to be lacking in flexibility around what to call loved ones.
