    Tips for Choosing the Right Nickname

    The best nicknames are those which have some personal meaning.

    You can pick out something which is either a physical attribute or personality trait and do something with that.

    For example, if he’s very well built/manly you could call him ‘Arnie’/’Conan’ or if he loves chocolate you could use something like ‘Choc-prince’ or ‘sweet-prince’.

    If you love his eyes then something like ‘bright eyes’ or ‘angel eyes’.

    If he is a little more rounded and isn’t sensitive about it you could perhaps use something like ‘sugar-belly’ or Winnie (the Pooh). Cheesy maybe, but you get the idea!

    You can also build a nickname around something which has significant and/or private meaning to the 2 of you – for example the place that you met.

    Keep in mind that many guys seem to like things which highlight their manliness and sexiness or suggest something mysterious about them. In which case you could use a nickname which incorporates ‘dark’, ‘fire’, ‘bad’ or something similar.

    You can also use his name, combining that with something else for example Ty-tiger or honey-Ty.

    Write some words down and play with them a little to see which combinations work best. Hope that helps get your ideas flowing anyway.

    (Update: Thanks to CrystalKitty for some great suggestions). So if you know any cute nicks that start with these letters, add a comment and I will add it to this list. Mean time, have fun!

      • Pinky

        Thanks Rosa, Corrected.

    • Katy Meehan

      Great nicks, but I have two more to add – Stud Muffin. This would also lead to a cute couple nickname. Him = ‘Stud Muffin’, Her = ‘Cupcake’.

    • Destiny

      Hey, this has really helped me find a nick for my Cuddle Cakes, thanks! 🙂

    • Anonymous

      What about “favorite” for the letter ‘f’?

      Maybe for the letter ‘I’ it could be “icing” like he is the icing on the cake. Or for the letter ‘O’, “only one for me”

      Maybe try “very” with above choices for the letter ‘V’? Example – “very handsome” or “very hunky”.

      Maybe play with the word exactly for the letter ‘X’. “Xactly mine” etc.

    • crystalkitty

      Impressive list! Only one thing: in French you would never call anyone “beau”, you would say “beau-gosse” which is closer to handsome. We say beautiful for girls only. (ma belle) I know, it’s sexist 😛

      • wayde

        Out of curiosity, could “beau” be used as an adjective to describe guys? “C’est un beau garçon.” Or does that sound awkward too? Thanks!

    • Alison

      Cookie lips is a good one

    • Cynthia

      I call my fiancé pookie or pookie butt sometimes
