Afrikaans term or phrase: hartlam
personal letter
afrikaans
maryanne
darling; dearest; dear
Explanation:
The three words given by the dictionary give the general meaning. The word consists of two parts:
hart = heart
lam = lamb
the expression 'my lam' is sometimes used as an endearment. A well known song has the title - ek loop die pad my lam - ( I travel the way, my lamb [literally])
So 'hartlam' is a beautiful compound word.
