Kosenamen are usually assigned among persons, in a close relationship to stand to each other (as fell in love, married couples or parents and children).

Sometimes a Kosename is derived from a Verballhornung of a regular name . Similarly as with pointed names the Kosename can be won also as transmission of an associated characteristic. Usually here the associated characteristic is however positively occupied.

If one would not like to annoy its partner with a Kosenamen, one should absolutely give consideration to its reaction, because not each humans like the same Kosenamen.

In addition most humans insist on it (particularly with failed Kosenamen) the fact that Kosenamen are not used in the public since this often as an inadvertent revealing private feelings is felt.
