"Mo chuisle" literally means "My pulse", but can mean "My love" or "My darling".

It's a term of endearment taken from the original phrases "A chuisle mo chroĆ­", or "Pulse of my heart".

When speaking directly to the person, use "A chuisle". When speaking about them say "Mo chuisle".

The movie Million Dollar Baby incorrectly spells "Mo chuisle" as "Mo cuishle".
