There are many ways to know when to start calling your boyfriend by a nickname. Hopefully it comes naturally one day, maybe during a date or a romantic adventure. If he starts calling you by a nickname, that's also a sign that he might want one.

How to decide a nickname for my boyfriend?

The number 1 rule: Pick a name that both of you like! It's ok to try out a name for a little while to see how well it fits. If he doesn't like it, don't call him by it. If you don't like it but he does, you can phase it out, but remember to at least use it once in a while to make him feel special. You could also try different nicknames in different settings, like one in public, one with family and friends, and one for his name in your phone.

Should I pick from a list or make my own?

Either one! As long as he is happy with his nickname, you did well. If you pick from this list, choose something that reminds you of him. Something that describes the way you feel when you see him, or the things that he does best. If you want to make your own, here are some tips:

Tips to make your own nickname for your boyfriend

  • Inside jokes can be a great source of nicknames.
  • Think of things that remind you of each other. If you both have a favorite song or tv show, a nickname from that may remind you of each other. Or you could think back to how you met, or a first date.
  • Think of a classic couple, like Romeo and Juliet or Beyonce and Jay-Z. If he reminds you of someone in a classic or cute couple, or you remind him of someone in a couple, then you two could riff off those names.
  • Pick a word you like, or a nickname from this list, or even her name. Then add something cute, like 'umble' or 'bun' or 'pie'. Optional step: mispronounce a letter or two. Mispronunciation is a great way to make a name your own. Voila! Instant nickname.
  • Don't call him the same thing his Ex called him. That's asking for trouble!
  • Don't call him the same thing his mom calls him. That's asking for trouble!
  • Don't call him something he used to call his Ex. That's asking for trouble!
