bae

acronym; abbreviation; noun
acronym for Before Anyone Else; used as a term of endearment, thus also thought to be derived from the word "baby" or "babe"
 
"I love you, bae."
Etymology : babe (n) late 14c., short for "baban" (early 13c.), which probably is imitative of baby talk. Now mostly superseded by its diminutive form baby. Used figuratively for "a childish person" from 1520s. Meaning "attractive young woman" is 1915, college slang. Babe in the woods is from 1795.
