What do you call these words in your dialect?

Isn't huuno a affectionate word used for a female? I.e saying Huuno, how are you. Or Am I mistaken
It's used for both genders. I'm good if a chick calls me huuno, bit I don't like it when a guy calls me huuno. It's soft like aboowe. Just call me walaal and call it a day.

Dinner party- Martiqad (Xaflad too)
Kettle- Kirli (same I think)
Cat- bisad
He- Isaga
Fish- Kaluun
Salt- milix
Brother- walaal (we use huuno too)
Great grandmother- ayeeyo
Blanket- buusto
Pillow- barkin makes sense. We use the Arabic word too « makhadet »
finally, someone saying “isaga”. I thought I was going crazy, “asaga” sounds stupid and can be confused with “asaagaa” which means your peers or people at your level.
