[ANON POST] German endearments

This one is sort of a quickie, but I wasn't sure how to google it, exactly. I tried 'German endearments' "German conjugation' and 'German suffixes' on a hunch. I tried babblefishing it, but it isn't particularly reliable. If anyone speaks German and could help me out, it would be amazing.

I want to have one male character refer to another, in a friendly, affectionate way, as 'little red'. In reference to Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. It seems to me it might be slightly more complicated than simple translating the words 'little' and 'red' from English to German, but I have no idea how the language works.
