Are you looking for nicknames for girls? We can’t really say for sure when nicknames started or where they started but we all have pet names for our family, friends, and yes even our pets get a nickname besides the name we have given them. It only makes sense that we give our lover a nickname as well. There are some that are often over used but generally nicknames have a meaning to the person who gave it, and the person who is receiving the nickname.
If you want to give your girlfriend a nickname try to make it special to her, think of her personality, her looks, is she from the city or country, what are her favorite things as far as music, movies, and books? What is her favorite food, snack, or drink? Write down 5 or 6 things that come to mind when thinking of these things and review it the next day.

When you decide to choose a nickname for your girlfriend, you need to keep in mind that the name should fit her in some way. Her personality, the things she likes, her physical attributes, are all things that you should be thinking about when you choose a nickname.
One thing you should NOT do is choose something like pudding, dumpling, or muffin bottom, these can be taken by her as you referring to her being fat. Donut sounds like she is an afterthought a dessert after the main meal. Another one to steer away from poopsie…. Why would you call your girlfriend poop??
It can be hard choosing a nickname for your girl, just use some common sense and you will be fine.
