Love


Explanation:
This is a German pet name (no, not for animals) for someone you love.

Love or Dear would be near to the meaning.

"Schatz" (where Schatzi is derived from) translates as "treasure", and the appended "i" indicates the affectionate form of the word.

The term itself can be used for men and women alike.

Little Darling


Explanation:
This is a pet name for someone you like or love very much--I think more common in Austria or Switzerland then in Germany. You can translate it as "Little Darling", "Sweety".... The i-ending is a diminutive, which--to me--emphasizes this person must like you a whole lot.

Hope this helps.

honey, hon, darling


Explanation:
well, I suppose you are lucky, if someone calls you that, but be aware, that it can also also be meant sarcastically - my aunt always told me "call them all SCHATZI, that way you can't mix'em up" - Schatz is a treasure, an -i is a diminutiva, so a little treasure.
