What are some terms of endearment or cute names to call your girlfriend in Japanese?

In English, we often use "honey" and "sweety" or "sweetheart" or maybe even "love" or "baby"... What do guys call their close girlfriends in Japan, or Husbands call their wives? I'm looking for the actual Japanese word, as well as the translation.

As far as I know, there are none for that purpose in Japanese.

Some people call their girl/boy friends by their nicknames instead such as __chan.
