How To Create Cute Nicknames For Girlfriend

Make sure she approves, she enjoys and basks in love whenever you use the nicknames. If she doesn’t like the nickname you call her, then no worries. Our list has pretty good plenty of nicknames, She can never say NO! You can even create a unique cute the best nickname for a girlfriend using these.

1. Consider Her Personality To Form A Cute Nickname

Give the nickname based on her personality. Consider what type of woman she is. Is she calm or talkative? Is she playful? Is she kind? etc.  Based on that you can form a cute name. For example: if she is talkatively giving the names like talky, chatterbox will suit her.

2. Choose Based On Her Physical Traits, Positively

Create cute names to call your girlfriend based on physical traits. This can give a great opportunity to express your love and compassion. At the same time, it can even decompose your love when said it in the wrong way. Specify only the positive traits to avoid the misconception. For example, Do not call your girlfriend “fatty” for being bit weighted, instead, you can call her “Pumpkin“. These both have the difference although they mean the same.

Use the names like Butterfly, Beautiful, Brown eyes, Cutie, Pretty, Angel and compliment her physically.

3. Consider Her Career To Form A Cute Unique Nickname

It is the most common one.  What type of field she is in? She may be in the medical industry or may be in the IT industry. By considering her job, you can give a nickname. Don’t be too silly in choosing the nickname. Just think creative.

Is she into fashion, name her like “Vogue” or If she likes cooking name her “Chef” or If she is singer call her “Song Bird”.

4. Consider Her Mannerism

How she behaves under different situations can be used to frame a nickname. If she behaves like forgetting something frequently, you can name her “goldfish”. If she works only 8 hours per day, call her “9 to 5“, Giving such names will require your further explanation of why you did call her with those names anyway. Try to give a beautiful nickname. Never go with the undesirable names. Because you are about to give a cute nickname for your girlfriend.

5. Consider Most Memorable TV Character

Right from Cinderella to Elsa, Minnie Mouse to Hello KittyDaenerys Targaryen to Nora Dust, there are many fictitious characters which are most memorable to us.  Choose the nickname based on those character’s role. You should consider your girlfriend’s looks and personality with the character’s.

If your girlfriend is more like an angel and behaves sweet, give her the name “Cinderella“. If she is brave and born with leadership quality, call her with the name “Dany”.

6.Cute Couple Nicknames

These type of nickname creations are really the cutest ones. Right from Romeo and Juliet, we know many pairs. When your girlfriend calls you with one of the names, you call her with just opposite. If she calls you “hero”,  then you call her “heroine”.  Because she is the heroine of your love story. If she calls you “Tiger”, you call her “Tigress”.

Some of such cute pair nicknames are:

1.Romeo – Juliet

2.Khal and Khaleesi

3.Fire – Ice

4.Milk – Cookies

5.Sweet – Sour

6.Yin – Yong

7.Cowgirl – Cowboy

8.King – Queen

9.Salt – Pepper

10.Batman – Robin

7. Take Initials Of Her Name

When you are not comfortable with anyone of the ideas listed here, try to take the first 2 initials of her name. Her first name and middle name, Her first name and surname anything it can be. It is not for all the names though. Names that end with the letters “J”, “D”, “T” can make use of it. Example: “KJ” from Keira Jane.

 8. Part Of Her Name Can Be Her Cute Nickname Too

Take this idea as only your last option to create a cute nickname. Try to find a cute pet name with her own name. Some names have lots of name with it. For example the name ” Elizabeth” has the names “Liz”, “Beth”, “Lizzie”, “Izzy”, “Liza”, “Betsy” or “Libby”. Go creative with the following ideas. You can use nickname generator too.

  • Take the truncated version of the name. Truncate at least one or two syllables from the end of the name and use the minimal. Example: “Bea” from Bea Saw.
  • Add the characters “ie”, “i” or “y” to the end of the short name. Example: “Jessie” or “Jesy” from
  • Add a character the silent “e” to the first short name. Example: “Kate” from “Katarina”, “Betty” from Elizabeth.

Don’t Do These Things While Creating Nicknames – A Big No

1. Don’t Call With A Name That Makes Her Upset

The purpose of creating nicknames is to strengthen your relationship. It should explore love and affection. So be kind enough when you create a name for her. Once you create a nickname, call her once in the one-on-one. Based on how she reacts to that, you can either continue to call on or drop that fully. Ask whether the name you used to call, bothering her in some way or the other.

2. Nickname Should Be The Shortest One and Easy To Remember

Nicknames you create should be the easiest one to remember and to pronounce. A definite no to the nickname that is longer than the original one.

3. Do Not Recycle The Old Nicknames Your Ex Had

If you want to create a nickname, do it fresh. Never take the one you used for your ex. Not every girl would accept it. When she comes to know that you are using the same name for both of them your condition may worsen.

4. Choose Any Nicknames, But Keep Only One (To Match All The Situations)

To make the nickname appropriate in all situations, keep one unique nickname and use that in front of all. In private, you can call her with any nickname of your choice. But remember when you introduce her to your family, you should introduce her with decency. I hope you know it! For example, you can’t introduce your girlfriend as “Hottie” in front of your parents. It will embrace both of them.

Calling your girlfriend “champ, boss, my cute fighter” will give her more joy than calling her babe, doll face, sweetie, cutie-pie and such.  It’s not a feminist thing but calling with nickname more than a typical female stereotype can make her think that you are seeing her more than the beauty. It’s important. So, how do you call your girlfriend? Of all the cute nicknames to call your girlfriend, which one you like the most? Let me know guys!

  16. JEP May 17, 2018

    I called my gf “sweetie”, “beautiful”, “baby”, “babe” but when I noticed her best friend who is a guy calling her “baby” I decided to only call her by her name and no more pet nicknames… maybe I’m wrong for thinking like that… maybe i can come up with a nickname no one else used with her

  17. Lisa Williams May 18, 2018

    Hi Jep

    As her friend calls with the name “baby”, it is better to call her with a unique cute name. Baby is one of the most common names used among the friend circle. So frame a unique name based on the things listed here.

  18. Eshmi June 4, 2018

    I call my girlfriend Lovey and Love all the time… Probably because of my english grandparents lol.

    I’m fifteen and have been thinking about promise rings recently… But because we’re both female(and us female couples tend to take things too fast RIP) I’m scared that I’m goin too fast :C
    We’ve been dating for… 3 months on the next 11th C:

  19. Lisa Williams June 4, 2018

    I am glad you thinking to give a promise ring with just 3 months of dating.But don’t do this now since you are only 15. Wait for a while. Soon you will reach your 16. That time you can give her your promise ring.

    But at the same time I feel like no I should find something that suits her more!
    Because she likes stars and space so much, is there any recommendations for girl who like that?

  42. Lisa Williams December 3, 2018

    Hey Faisal
    What about the names
    Twinkle, Aurora, Luna (Latin name for moon),Cosmos, Apollo (Greek nickname of fun and a light), Phoenix ? These names might suit her I think.

  58. Ollie March 8, 2019

    I don’t know what to call my girlfriend.. We’ve been dating for two months and she calls me all of these cute names and it makes me feel bad because is still call her by her name. I’m also kind of afraid to call her anything other than her name for fear I may be moving to fast. Its also hard to find a name for her because we both have very homophobic parental figures.

  59. Lisa Williams March 8, 2019

    Hi Ollie

    You told “Your girlfriend is already calling you with all of these cute names”. You are lucky then. Why don’t you call her with some cute name that she like. Just pick the one from our list and start calling her with that name. Based on her reaction, continue to call her or just go into another name. Having homophobic parental figures has nothing to do with love man!

  60. morty March 20, 2019
