How To Come Up With A Cute And Unique Nickname For Your Boyfriend?

Here are some things to think about when coming up with cutesy names for boys…

Woman Thinking Thought Bubble

Maybe you could come with a pet name that reflects his physical appearance. Think about the most prominent physical feature of your boyfriend: his eye color, hair color, lips, smooth skin, height. If he has beautiful big eyes call him: bright eyes, “blue eyes,” or “angel eyes.” If he has gorgeous blonde hair call him “blondie.” 

Or perhaps he is the most handsome guy you’ve ever set your eyes on: call him “hot stuff,” “heartthrob,” “sexy pants,” or “good looking,” “stud muffin,” “heart breaker,” “movie star,” “super stud,” “sexy devil,” “sexy man,” “Mr perfect,” “Romeo,” “looker,” “hottie,” “foxy,” “McDreamy.”

If he has juicy, kissable lips call him “sugar lips,” “hot lips,” or “kissy face.” Does he have the cutest, touchable cheeks? Then the perfect pet name for him might be “sweet cheeks.”

Or you could base the new nickname for your boyfriend on his personality traits. Maybe he is always tired or sleepy, maybe he is really funny and smiley, or perhaps he is the most adventurous person that you know. 

Is he a really sweet, loving boyfriend? Call him “sweetie pie,” “love muffin,” “sugar plum,” “hot chocolate,” “honey bear,” “honey bee,” “sugar puff,” “honey,” “my sweet boy,” “honey bunny,” “honey badger,” “honey bunch,” “honey buns,” “honey bun,” “sweet pea,” or “sugar cube.” 

Does he always make you smile and laugh? Then these might be the perfect nicknames to call your boyfriend: “little monkey,” “funny hunny,” “giggles,” or,  “smile maker.”

Does your boyfriend give you the best, biggest bear hugs? The perfect name may be “honey bear,” “papa bear,” “teddy bear,” “panda bear,” “pooh bear,” “snuggle bug,” “cuddle buddy,” “boo bear,” “love bug,” “huggy bear,” “cuddle cakes,” “cuddle muffin,” “Pookie bear,” or “cuddle bunch.”

Is he the love of your life and you just love him so much? Here are some nicknames for your boyfriend who means everything to you: “love muffin,” “baby cakes,” “sugar plum,” “sweetie pie,” “my love,” “honey,” “baby,” “boo-boo,” “lover boy,” “my man,” “prince charming,” “Amore Mio,” “mon amour,” “my heart,” “mister cutie,” or, “love of my life.”

For a really romantic nickname for your soulmate consider: “soul mate,” “true love,” “other half,” “my heart’s desire,” or “my life.”

Think about his favorite hobbies and interests. Does he love maths and science, art, traveling or food? This really depends on the guy that you are dating and what he loves most. Maybe he has a favorite animal that could inspire the nickname. 

Perhaps you could create a nickname for him based on one of the inside jokes that you two share? If you have a favorite memory together you could use something to do with that to come up with a completely unique and personal nickname. 

What To Avoid When Coming Up With A Nickname?

Hand Gesture Thumbs Down

When coming up with a new nickname for your boyfriend, make sure to be sensitive and don’t choose a nickname that might offend him or upset him. Also, don’t pick a nickname that will annoy or irritate him, as it will quickly get on his nerves. Use these tips to avoid giving your boyfriend a nickname that he hates!

Don’t use a nickname that you use for anybody else (e.g. an ex-boyfriend, your dad, your uncle, your close guy friend). And don’t pick a nickname that may sound too girly!

Also, don’t pick a name that is hard to pronounce or overly complicated, stick to something short, simple and easy to remember. But, remember to have fun, a nickname doesn’t have to be really serious!
