There’s just something special about giving your boyfriend a unique nickname that’s used only for him. The trouble is, it’s just not very original or special if you use all the typical “pet names” for him. That’s why you’ll want to come up with a whole new nickname that’s specifically for him.
But that’s not always easy. Some people can think of one right away while others struggle. If you’re the latter, have no fear. We’re here to give you a TON of different nicknames to use on your man. Find one that he loves and stick with it.
Why to Use Cute Nicknames for Your Boyfriend
Some people don’t like pet names or nicknames. And that’s okay. However, there are many reasons you should use them on your boyfriend. If you don’t think his name is enough and you want to show your affection in a different way, nicknames are perfect. Here’s why you should definitely implement nicknames when talking to your boyfriend.
- It’ll make him feel special.
There’s nothing that makes a guy feel better than when his woman is using a special name for him. Not only does the specific name you use convey how you feel about him, but it’ll show him that you see him as special in comparison to everyone else. And since we all want to feel unique to our partner, he’ll love hearing a cute nickname coming from you. This can also help stop jealousy and insecurities in a relationship because you’re showing him that you’re all his.
- It will bring you closer together.
Because it’ll make him feel special, he’ll also be extra affectionate toward you. This will help bond you further and nurture your relationship. You’ll feel even closer to him when you’re referring to him by nicknames that are cute and meaningful to him. Not only that, but you can even use the nicknames as inside jokes that will only make you two feel closer and more intimate because nobody else will get it.
- He’ll start using them on you, too.
This is by far one of the best reasons to start using nicknames with your significant other. If you are brave enough to call him a number of different cute names, he’ll feel like he can start calling you them, too. Not only will you then feel really confident and meaningful to him, but it will strengthen your relationship and even announce to everyone else that you are his and his alone.
- It makes things more exciting and fun.
Let’s be real, some relationships fizzle out and end because there’s just nothing new and exciting about it anymore. You always have to be making an effort to spice things up in your relationship and using cute nicknames is a great way to do it. You’ll be able to surprise your man by calling him something really flattering out of the blue and it’ll help take things to the next level. If you feel like your relationship is boring, this could be what you need to save it. Make sure to use a nickname he’ll love and adore – or else it might have the opposite effect.
- You can use them as code words.
If you need certain code words to get out of a certain situation with your boyfriend, you can use cute nicknames as a way to do that. Instead of using a random word that would cause attention, you can just call him something simple and cute. You can assign the word a specific meaning so whenever he hears it, he’ll know just what you want him to do. For example, if you’re really boring at a party with friends, you can call him “honey,” and he’ll know you want to leave and go home.

Tips for Using Cute Nicknames on Your Boyfriend
Not everyone is a fan of nicknames – especially cute ones. So you have to know just how to use them so he’ll actually love them and want you to call him by them.
- Use one he relates to.
You can’t just use a random nickname he won’t understand. In order to make them work the best, you should use one he relates to and can form a connection with. There’s no point in calling him “Hans Solo” if he’s never even seen Star Wars. But if he is a fan of the franchise, then it could be a huge compliment!
- Don’t use them too often.
One mistake many girlfriends make is using pet names too much. Sure, they’re really cute and meaningful – but only if you use them at the right times. If you constantly call him by cute nicknames every time you address him, it’ll get annoying and it will lose its meaning. So be sure to only use them during the times when they mean the most to you and when you’re feeling especially affectionate toward him.
- Don’t use them around his guy friends.
The most important tip I have for you when using nicknames like these is to NEVER use them in excess – or even at all – around his guy friends. Why? Because even though he may like them coming from you, they may be embarrassing for his friends to hear. A lot of these nicknames are also very personal and they should be reserved for moments when you have time alone with your man. He may not like them at all if you use them a lot whenever his friends are around.
There you have it. These are the best 200 cute nicknames you can use on your boyfriend. Just remember to find one that suits him and only use it if you know he really likes it.
