What name or word would be given for the examples below, metaphor?
- A mother calls her child cat, or tiger
- The wife calls her husband "Hey Baby".
- You're my moon.
- A very muscular person might be called "He's solid".
Basically there's extreme likeness to the other object and the person gets called by that name.
But this one turned into a weird argument; I have a black friend and he loves to be in the dark. He likes having lights turned off, so I said to him "... Yeah dark guy." But this is only following the above examples as well.
