I like using the word "Kochanje/kochanja" to call a beloved in polish.

My mom's surname is actually Kochanek, which means "lover"

It's actually 'kochanie' or 'kochana'. First one, kochanie, is gender neutral. Kochana depends on context but would refer to a feminine subject/object without regard for speakers gender.

Aside of that, cool!
