    Cariño means CARING or being sweet, could also be HONEY or DEAR

    It is also a Filipino word, similar to Spanish, Italian, Mexican and other latin countries

    The precise word should be "Cariño"

    Source(s): From Philippines and also speaks Spanish

    Italy. It's masculine. The feminine form is "carina."

    It means nice, kind, sweet, or pretty.

    Sei carino=you are sweet (male)

    Sei carina=you are sweet (female)

    Source(s): I'm studying Italian in high school and I've been to Italy.

    It is a spanish word.

    Cariño comes from the word "querer".

    It represents the affection you have for somebody/sth.

    It is also used to call your mate, like darling in english: ¿are you there darling? = ¿estas ahi cariño?

    Dictionary def:

    (afecto) affection: siento mucho cariño por este disco, I'm very fond of this record; (amor, dulzura) abrazó a su hija con mucho cariño, he hugged his daughter tenderly; (cuidado)

    (querido) darling

    (gesto de amor) cuddle.

    Carino is italian. It means cute, sweet. It is a masculine diminuitive of caro (i.e. dear) can also be caruccio.
