When I go out with the ladies, I don't force them to pronounce my name. I tell them I like to go by the nickname of Kitten.

Usually, we use nicknames to address our loved ones affectionately. Sometimes, if the real name is really long, we shorten it naturally, and this shortened version, becomes a nickname. However, if you are looking for a cute nickname for your boyfriend, you either have to think of something on your own that sounds nice, or search for a name that has a great meaning.

Creating Cool Nicknames for Boys
  • Avoid creating a name that reflects the way a person looks. For example, if your friend/boyfriend is fat, avoid names like 'fatty' and 'fatso'. Here you make sure that you aren't hurting his feelings or emotions.
  • Try to analyze his personality, behavior, and way of thinking. These things can give you great hints. For example, if he watches a lot of movies, you can call him 'buff', 'buffy' being a more mushy alternative.
  • Sometimes, using just the initials of a person, makes the nickname sound really cool. Though this isn't really a creative way of coming up with a name, it certainly is way cooler!
  • If you want to create a creative nickname, try to understand what the person in question likes the best. Once you know what it is, see what it is called in other languages. You might get some great ideas there.
If, while looking at these nicknames you get confused, start by choosing the ones you like the best. After you have your 'favorites', select one that suits him the best. If you want to suggest any nicknames for boys, you can leave them in the comments section below.
