You’re at that point in your dating or relationship that you want to call your guy by a special nickname but it has to be cute so where are you going to find that? Don’t fret, we have a huge list of cute nicknames for guys, say them out loud to see how they sound, and choose two or three in case he doesn’t like one you have chosen.
We have even included some in Italian, French, German, Russian and a couple in Spanish. You will have a few to try out and see how he likes them, if he doesn’t like any of those, come back to the list and try again!
Remember, a nickname means more if it is personal between the two of you and if he doesn’t like mushy nicknames like lamb chop then stick to the classics like babe or hun. Something else to remember when picking a nickname, do not use one that you used with an ex or one that makes him feel self-conscious about a short coming such as height. If he is short do not call him shorty, we shouldn’t have to explain this but that would just be cruel.
You don’t have to choose from this list either. Think about him, his expressions and his personality. Does he show emotions easily or not, what kind of hobbies does he have, all these things can help you choose or make up a nickname for him that is more personal and mean more to him than just a random nickname or Babe or Sweetheart.
