what does chouke mean?

Some people have been asking me what my blogname- CHOUKE- means.
Well, chouke is a petname for me. It's a sweet word which is used in Belgium. It comes from the old french verb chouer or choyer, which means: to surround with affection, to love, to cherish.

Saw a variation on the word once in Valencia, Spain:


I think it fits to a creative blog because I think handmade creations also have a glow of affection and can be cherished because they're unique and personal.

So because this was already my petname,  because of my love for the french language,  because it fits to my creations: what could be a better name for a blog?
