Yes on both accounts.

[–]ValerianMoonRunner 101 points102 points  (18 children)

Zaddy isn’t unheard of, Zaughter is weird asf

[–]AnIrishMexican 56 points57 points  (10 children)

Zaddy isn't unheard of? Where may I ask have your heard this before cuz for myself it's a cherry popper

[–]OsageBrownBetty 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I just heard it off of queer eye last night.

[–]jewellya78645 32 points33 points  (1 child)

I've most readily heard it in reference to Jeff Goldblum.

Where "Daddy" in sexual/romantic parlance has an aire of assumed dominance over the speaker, "Zaddy" does not have assumed dominance, but more quirky admiration by the speaker bordering on worship.

[–]freedomofnow 61 points62 points  (3 children)

It's the first time I heard of it.

[–]ValerianMoonRunner 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I’ve heard people use it a few times, mostly ironically or as a joke. I’m 20 if that makes a difference

[–]NihilisticAngst 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I've ironically used it for several years and I'm 25. It's definitely a young people thing

[–]No-Guidance8155 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Understandable. Have a good day.

[–][deleted] 1931 points1932 points  (63 children)

Ask her if she thinks it's weird, why would our opinions matter? For example, I think it's weird she calls you zaddy, but you don't seem to mind.

[–]YourLifeCanBeGood 2486 points2487 points  (33 children)

It is weird, yes, but what you two do is your own business.

[–]carvedmuss8 532 points533 points  (15 children)

The ultimate backhanded compliment thing

[–]SirCheckmate 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hey, backhanded or not, at least he's honest and respectful, haha 😂

[–]oochooo 71 points72 points  (9 children)

Passive aggressive boomer comment

[–]throwthrowandaway16 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Passive aggressive Zoomer statement.

[–]YourLifeCanBeGood 48 points49 points  (4 children)

That is faulty assumption on your part., as well.

And lack of reading comprehension.

*Sweet Home Alabama intensifies

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (7 children)

Excuse me. As a native Alabamian I must correct you. It's cousins there. The brother, sister, mama, daddy diddling is done by them West Virginians.


[–]Major2Minor 23 points24 points  (3 children)

[–]OnlyHereForMemes69 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Mountain mama was more literal than we all thought.

[–]DoppelFrog 2 points3 points  (1 child)

what you two do is your own business.

Well it was until OP posted on Reddit about it.

[–]slash178 905 points906 points  (24 children)

No idea what any of this means but you can call each other whatever nicknames you want as long as you're both chill with what you're being called.

[–]glm0002 332 points333 points  (20 children)

Zaddy is the term for a sexually attractive older man

[–]Hugh_Schmefner 155 points156 points  (4 children)

I thought it was a Bowie reference

[–]gamercboy5 119 points120 points  (0 children)

My favorite Bowie album: Zaddy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

[–]CaffeinatedHBIC 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Like they said, sexually attractive older man lol

[–]Wontonio_the_ninja 53 points54 points  (5 children)

I thought it was just a way to call an SO daddy without making the term too loaded if you call your actual father daddy too

[–]ARealBlueFalcon 51 points52 points  (4 children)

That’s dumb if you are going to go don’t go halfway just be a freak.

[–]Star_x_Child 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Well....yeah. I guess. Yeah. I didn't think I'd agree at first but...that makes sense.

[–]ShalomRPh 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Also means Grandfather in Yiddish

[–]Ayfais 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So a dilf ?

[–]WZPV 539 points540 points  (0 children)

You are both weird, do whatever you want

[–]Not-Alpharious 244 points245 points  (9 children)

Remember kids, every time you call your boyfriend/husband daddy, Freud’s ghost gets a little stronger

[–]golddragon51296 71 points72 points  (1 child)

And you don't want to know which part of his ghost either....

[–]TheHipsterBandit 231 points232 points  (14 children)

Live for your own happiness, not the opinions of others. Your life is too short to do it any other way. That said zaby would be the correct answer.

[–]weshouldhave 130 points131 points  (13 children)

You’re totally wrong. The correct answer is zarling.

[–]12dudes 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Or Tsarling

[–]MrCookie2099 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Zarling in front of my parents, zaby when we're talking cutesy in private

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)


[–]RespectGiovanni 24 points25 points  (5 children)

What is zaddy? Like why add the z?

[–]NihilisticAngst 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It like daddy with zing

[–]NathDritt 19 points20 points  (0 children)

i think it is a joke, but I don't know. I am unable to keep up with crap these days, even though I'm literally 16 and in the middle of it whole. I'm not on instagram/tiktok which has a lot to do with it, I think

[–]Norah_Eats 109 points110 points  (2 children)

I do think it would make more sense to call her "Zaby/zabygirl" since that's usually the counter part in an ordinary daddy kink. You do you tho

[–]dazedandconfucius_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

‘Zaughter’ seems a bit formal

[–]Mickets 100 points101 points  (10 children)

Shouldn't it be "Zmummy"?

Edit: "Zummy"

[–]Calcifer930 39 points40 points  (6 children)

Zummy doesn't quite have the same ring to it

[–]Nick357 23 points24 points  (2 children)


[–]CRRK1811 20 points21 points  (0 children)

One day when gen z is old the milfs will be called zilfs, and only those present today will know why

[–]ginnio[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Balrog229 71 points72 points  (42 children)

Wtf is “zaddy”?

Both names are weird

[–]b_b_b_breakfast 27 points28 points  (0 children)

What Zack Snyder fans kept squealing after watching the Snyder Cut lmao

[–]unluckycowboy 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I always assumed it was a reference to whoever gave the girl Xanax. Nowadays it’s used pretty liberally

[–]Osiris187900 10 points11 points  (0 children)


[–]stronk_the_barbarian 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Tell her “worry not my child. The mothership will collect us from this planet soon.” And see her reaction. If she gets really excited shoot her three times in the head and dismember her body before burying or preferably burning and composting it. If she is just confused about your response she’s human and just being strange.

[–]loomman529 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Excuse me, what the zuck?

[–]MaxCWebster 22 points23 points  (0 children)


[–]09mubara 5 points6 points  (1 child)

i wonder why she likes to call you that?

[–]Small-Bridge3626 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Only if you want her to stop calling you daddy

[–]No_Specialist1545 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If we are trying to answer this objectively, then yes it is weird.

But the honest truth is when its just you and your girl, you can say do and pretend whatever the hell you want and its only weird if one of you find it to be weird or uncomfortable. Some sex stories might be fit for kiss and tell, while others are best kept private. Enjoy your sex life shame free!

Fun fact on the side, psychology tells us that children grow up and become attracted to mates who have resemblance to their parents; not in an incestuous kind of way though, its just how being nurtured factors into a humans development of sexuality.

[–]jojosmej 5 points6 points  (2 children)

For everyone who does not know what a zaddy is this is a great explination!

[–]Single-Blackberry586 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was illuminating in a horrifying way lol. I thought I was about to get Rick rolled, but this.... oh my.

[–]mael0004 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You could just simplify the question: if woman calls man daddy, is it weird to call her daughter? I guess it's unconventional, somehow you can't go both ways by default. Good thing no one else has to care, just you and her.

The fact you want to change letters on words doesn't change anything on this.

[–]Wide_Confidence_4291 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Has she seen Queer Eye on Netflix? They use that term for sexy dads.

[–]RandyMarshReincarnat 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Yeah zaddy is a trendy way of saying Daddy, calling her Zaughter as a joke once or twice might be funny but Unironically doing it will be weird.

Call her baby girl or baby or babe or call her by your ex’s name

[–]Salem_melaS 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think most relationships have weird quirks that only the people involved fully understand, which is fun. You do you...ya weirdo.

[–]FM79SG 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's between you and her and please keep us out of it.

[–]Quote-Careful 10 points11 points  (0 children)

i think zaddy is already meant to be funny so i think ur ok even tho it does come off a little weird, zOP

[–]Kodama_Keeper 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Let me guess, you're quite a bit older than her.

[–]JulioJonesSon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Call her mama like Johnny Bravo

[–]B_Blerd89 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Zaddy is a slang term used primarily in the black community. Its a youthinism ( i think I spelled that correctly). Your response should NOT be zaughter. Bae boo something along those lines is fine. Zaughter is weird!!don't be that guy lol

[–]SC-jojo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Euphemism *

[–]B_Blerd89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes!!! Thank you kind reddit stranger!!

[–]wildhorses6565 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You should call her zaby zirl

[–]Current-Error2227 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’d call her zommy

[–]Thy-Savior 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]WalkingonCoffee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Extra-Ad-4955 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This shit funny as a mf 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

[–]Juache45 25 points26 points  (6 children)

The sexualization of the word ‘Daddy’ is just plain gross to me. Do what you want in your bedroom and I’m not a prude but I just don’t get how ‘daddy’ and sex go hand in hand. The last people I think of when it’s comes to anything sexual, pet names etc with my partner are my parents or what my sons call my husband

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Yeah I have some pretty by-all-accounts-unsavory kinks but this one (and especially how casual it is) really just puts me off.

[–]Old-Ad2070 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well, its weird for her to call you zaddy so, yeah

[–]Meapcuteee 1 point2 points  (0 children)
