Does anyone know the exact word and translation used in the movie Million Dollar Baby? I believe it menat my darling, my blood. It was on the back of the robe. I have a daughter named Maggie and it seems perfect for her.

Thanks.

I haven't see the movie but there has been a bit of discussion about it on this site recently. Based on that discussion, I'm almost certain the the words were:

Mo Chuisle

It's an idiomatic expression which translates roughly as:

My Darling

Literally, it translates as "My Vein" or "My Pulse".

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Le meas,

James
