Cute and Funny Nicknames for Couples

Updated on December 12, 2014

Fun, Cute, and Romantic Nicknames for Your Significant Other

Whether you're a girl trying to find a few boyfriend nicknames, a guy trying to find girlfriend nicknames, or anything and everything in between—you always want to come up with something a little bit different than what everyone else is using. This is much more difficult than it sounds. That's what this article is here for.

While this list is separated into male and female categories, both nickname lists are obviously interchangeable, depending on the personality of the person getting the name or the one doing the naming.

Have fun!

Nicknames for Couples May Actually Strengthen the Bond

Personally, from a guy's perspective, I never believed that nicknames strengthened the bond between a couple. I always thought that giving girlfriends nicknames was kind of sappy. As I've matured, though, I've realized that it's really not about the pet name—it's all about feeling comfortable enough with each other to use that name in public. I no longer have a problem with a woman using cute nicknames for their boyfriends or husbands and I urge those who think otherwise to reconsider.
