What is a good "darling" name for hare in Ukrainian or Russian?

Google says that the Russian name for rabbit is "krolik" while the name for hare is "zayats."


If I were to call a daughter or niece "zayats", does a nickname like "Zayatska" or simply "Yatska" make sense? Or is it wrong? If it's wrong, what is a good nickname for someone I want to call a hare?

I call "мій зайчик" - "mii zaichyk" or "зая" - "zaja"

There are other sweet words in Ukrainian - рибка, ластівочка, пташка, кицюня

I can help with Russian and Ukrainian languages

"Yatska" wouldn't make sense in Russian. Oxana already helped you with the rest! :)
