"Large love" doesn't count? Happy to be corrected if this is genuinely a poor translation. Thanks!

Here in the US I have only ever heard/read "great love", never "big love" or "large love". As in "He was the great love of her life".

I agree, as does nGram. Probably worth reporting:

that is interesting, large love seems to have had some use when I zoom in.

FWIW, I (native AmE) think "great" is the best English translation in this phrase. I don't think I've ever heard or read "large love," but I can imagine "big love" in a colloquial context like "That's some BIG love he's got going on for her...!" But removing "big" and "large" as accepted alternatives would probably result in a whole lot of failures on this exercise.

UPDATE -- What I neglected to mention above is that "great" is also accepted.
