We all have some very special people in our lives. And, over time, this leads us to call them by names other than their real name. Giving a loved one a nickname is a way for us to show endearment toward them. It also shows that we possess a more special relationship with that person.
Nicknames have been around forever, and although they are usually a truncated version or some variation of our first names, they don’t have to be! In other words, our nicknames growing up don’t have to be our nicknames in high school or into adulthood. More intimate relationships call for more personal names. So, let’s explore some!
Giving Each Other Nicknames
Couples' nicknames, AKA “pet names” are the kinds of names we give to people such as boyfriends, girlfriends, and spouses. These people deserve to have couples nicknames given to them! Think about it, they put up with all kinds of stuff with each other and still manage to stick together. That’s love.
Couples nicknames are also a great way to call upon your love in the middle of a crowd. There may be more than one Justin and Jennifer in a large crowd, but how many Sugarboogers can there actually be? Exactly.
What to Think About When Coming Up With a Couple's Nickname
- Their name: Sometimes you can play around with your love’s name in such a way that you find the perfect nickname for them! Take the name “Daniel” for example, shortened to “Dan” and mixed with “animal,” you get the cute nickname “Danimal”!
- Their personality: Think about how your love acts, what they enjoy, and so on. If they are not big on cuddling, then “Cuddles” is probably not a very good fit for them, you see?
- Rhymes: Rhymes in a nickname are not only fun but really cute, too! Take one nickname word and add a second word that’s not even a word but rhymes, such as “Cuddly Wuddly.”
- “E” sounds at the end: “E” sounds have a way of making most any word sound cutesy. Take the gross word “poops,” for example, and add the “e” sound at the end and you get a newer, somewhat cuter nickname “Poopsie”!
Now, if you’ve been together for some time now, chances are, you’ve called your other halves by some pretty basic nicknames like “Babe” and “Sweetheart.” Well now it’s time to upgrade! Take a gander at these lovely couples nicknames for something extra sweet to call your love!

Choosing the Perfect Nickname
With over a hundred cute nicknames to choose from, it can really be hard to pick through them which is where the tips come into play. It also never hurts to use some of the names here and there on your mate to see what their reaction is. Their reaction might just signal that you called them by a good name (or a really bad one)!
Regardless of what you choose to call your love, they should still love you just the same. Making the decision switch it up to cute nicknames is fair game, though, so don’t call your mate anything that you would not want to be called! Got that, Snickerdoodles?
