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.

      Great list! Picking a good nickname is always a bit of a challenge, so it's great to have them all in one place.

      I sometimes call my lovely partner "Poker Face Poopsie" because she can have quite a formidable expression whilst invoking the "silent treatment". Didn't see it on the list. Not sure of its origin (possibly from Betty Boop's cute li'l poop-poopie-doop?)

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Back in the day friend used to call me and my girlfriend frick and frack. We never called each other that though.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I used to think that my boyfriend liked the cutesie nicknames I use to call him, until he felt comfortable enough to tell me the truth. He preferred the basics - honey, baby, lover, sweetheart, etc.
