Tips to Create Unique Pet Names

Try to think of things in each of these categories that would make for a cute name.

Personality: Is your boyfriend or girlfriend always tired, sleepy, smiley, or attention-seeking? Try to come up with some adjectives or some things that are associated with these characteristics. For example, if your girlfriend is always sleepy, you can call her Eye Booger, Nappy Face, or Sleepy Bear. If you boyfriend smells really good you can call him Mr. Fresh. Think outside of the box!

Physical Appearance: This one is fairly easy. Think of a physical feature that you like about your girlfriend or boyfriend. What makes them stand out? If it’s their eyes, you can go off of their eye color and think of things associated with that color. If it’s their lips, something like Sugar Lips or Ruby sounds really sweet. What about their skin? If they have really smooth skin, you can call them Silk, Gloss, or Butter. Got a buff guy? Call him Popeye or Heavyweight.

Hobbies and Interests: This is a really broad category, depending on who you’re dating. If your girlfriend or boyfriend is a polymath who loves all sorts of different things, then narrow it down to some of the interests that they are most passionate about. For example, if they like food, you can narrow it down to the cuisine they most enjoy or the dish they always order at a restaurant. If your man loves hamburgers for example, you can call him Burger Buns. What if you’re dating someone who loves sports? If your girlfriend loves basketball, for example, call her Dribble or Coach Lady.

Inside Jokes: Sometimes the best names come from inside jokes that you have about each other. These are formed when events happen that only the two of you have experienced and understand. If you have a memorable experience with each other, try to think of an object associated with that event to use as a name. For example, if you went to a baseball game on your first date, and your date spilled ice cream on their shirt, you can call him/her something cute like Creamsicle or something even sillier, like Stained Shirt (Stainer) or Messy Mouth.

Making Up Words: The cutest names are names that are completely made-up. You can take part of your name and add a suffix or prefix to it. For example, if your girlfriends name is Bella you can call her Bellakins. You can also add Mr. or Miss to the front of the name. You can also add nonsensical endings to objects as well. For example, if your guy was into the ocean, you could call him Turtlebug or Dolphino.
