Pet names have been around for ages, and I’m not talking what you would name your dog! Pet names are sweet and cute nicknames you call those who are near and dear to you and are usually something that only you call that person.

Cute nicknames usually indicate a special kind of relationship. You may give one to your girlfriend, boyfriend, or best friend. And you may also give one to your own sweet little child.

Here are lots of examples of nicknames to help you get inspired! Below all of them, there's a section to help you come up with your own nicknames and figure out what makes a name that sticks.

Cute Nicknames for Guys

Nicknames for men can be tricky depending on your man. Are they strong? Then consider words that evoke strength like rock, steel, brute or some of the mythological gods like Zeus or Hercules.

Are they fast? Words like bolt, dash, and tenny shoe come to mind. These words can help make up a much more personalized nickname than the standard "honey."

How to Give a Nickname

Okay so — with so many nicknames to choose from, how do you pick the right one?

When giving a nickname to someone, it’s important to consider a few things since you can't just give someone any random nickname (well you could . . . but, yeah. It doesn't work so well).

Especially when it comes to giving cute nicknames—be careful who you give these to! Only give these types of nicknames to people you love because otherwise it can cause confusion and make it sound like you like someone even if it’s not your intention to sound that way!

Now when giving a cute nickname to someone, here are some things to consider:

  • Your relationship with them: Are they a spouse, a boyfriend/girlfriend, or your child? You will want to be sure that the name is both suitable and appropriate for the kind of relationship you have with this person! While nicknames for children should stay sweet and innocent, a nickname for a spouse can be more suggestive while still being cute!
  • Their personality: Nicknames should hands-down match the personality of the person you are naming. Does this person have a sweet and bubbly personality? Or are they more laid back and reserved? These types of traits can provide a lot of inspiration for nicknames if you think about them for a bit.
  • How it makes them feel: Nicknames aren’t any fun when the person with the name doesn’t like it! Be sure this person is okay with having a nickname, whether you ask them ahead of time or test the waters by giving it a shot.
  • Be special: The nickname you give should sound sweet and be special, and should only be for that one person. If you call a girlfriend “Bae” and then she finds out that you call every other girl “Bae,” well, you’re asking for it.

With so many cute nicknames to choose from, it can be tough to find the perfect one, but when you do, you’ll know it! It will sound and feel as natural to you as saying their real name, but more special and with more feelings put into it!

Just think about any nicknames you have had in your life, whether they’ve been given to you by significant others, best friends, or even your parents. How did they suit you? How did they make you feel when you heard them? I bet it felt weird if someone else tried to call you by those names as well!

That’s just how special the right nicknames can become to a person, so choose wisely and good luck!

Bonus: We Can't Forget Nicknames for Best Friends

Questions & Answers

Question: What name can I give to my male best friend?

Answer: Well, I don't know much about your friend, so here are some ideas for different types of personalities:

Funny Guys: Jimbo Joe, Bilbo (The Hobbit), Paco

Smart Guys: Professor, Gandalf (Lord of the Rings)

Cool Guys: Dragon Claw Death Hammer, Reddington (Blacklist), Burt Macklin (Parks and Recreation)

Fitness Enthusiasts: Sprinter, Muscles, Jazz Hands

Serious Guys: Stoick, Batman

Think about what things he likes, if there's anything he's utterly obsessed with, whether it be a specific food, car, sports team, etc. Personality and appearance are also potential sources for a great nickname.

But make sure that your friend likes the nickname you choose! For example, if you gave him a kind of "goofy" nickname, it could hurt his feelings, and he may not even tell you about it because he doesn't want to make an awkward situation.

I would suggest saying "Hey, I was thinking of a nickname to call you. I really liked this one, and this is why. What do you think of it?"
