Mavourneen is often used in Irish folk songs as a term of endearment (it means my darling).

Actually, the Irish expression is "mo mhúirnín". Mhúirnín is the genitive form of múirnín. [noted -ed]

This was the French artist James Jacques Tissot (1836-1902)'s pet name for his Irish mistress and model, Kathleen Newton (1854-1882), maybe in reference to the popular song 'Kathleen Mavourneen' (1837).
