The nicknames you use for your boyfriend should describe some aspect of his personality. The fact that he calls you ‘babe’, instead of some short form of your original name, gives you the incentive to call him ‘cute names’ not necessarily a modification of his original name.
Nicknames Based on Personality
Here are a few cute nicknames based on personality types:
Your boyfriend loves cuddling with you
Since he loves using you as his personal soft doll, you can call him some of the names below:
- Cuddly Bear
- Honey Bear
- Cuddle Cakes
- Hunny Bunny
- Snuggle babe
By the way, did you know that cuddling releases the bonding hormone ‘oxytocin’?
Oxytocin helps you feel good and creates a deep sense of connection with your partner. Cuddling has also been known to boost immunity, reduce stress and increase desire. So don’t forget to cuddle with your partner today!
Your boyfriend is super attractive
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. So it goes without saying that you find your boyfriend to be the most attractive guy around. Here are some names to express the same:
- Hot Chocolate
- Hot Lips
- Hot Stuff
- Good Looking
- Movie Star
- Heart Throb
- Mr. Perfect
- My Prince
- Prince Charming
- G-Man (Gorgeous Man)
- Eye candy
Your boyfriend is chubby
If your boyfriend has chubby cheeks and well endowed waistline and is not sensitive about it, you can call him the below names:
- Winnie (based on Winnie the Poo)
- Honey Bear
Cheesy maybe, but you get the idea!
Your boyfriend has a hunky personality
If you boyfriend is well muscled, or carries himself with panache, you can call him the below names:
- Super Stud
- Raunchy (makes for a sexy nickname)
- Big Guy

Your boyfriend has a soft and warm personality
If your boyfriend is on the “soft” side and has a sensitive aspect to his personality you can call him the below names:
- Teady Bear
- Love Muffin

Of course, “cute” nicknames make more sense when you tell your boyfriend why you are calling him by that name. You can use three or four nicknames for your boyfriend, one for every mood of his.
Quick Tips for Choosing the Perfect Nickname for Your Boyfriend:
Tip# 1: You can make a nickname out of his name, but be careful as some guys might find it offending. For example, Miggy for Miguel and Jake, Jakey for Jacob and Dally for Dallas. You can also consider a combination like ‘Ally Bear’ or ‘Ally Poo’ for Alex and ‘Andy Roo’ for Andrew.
Tip# 2: Don’t base the nickname on negative traits your boyfriend has.
Tip# 3: There are men who might find some nicknames offending because of the negative feelings they associate with it. Like for instance, a nickname his ex-girlfriend used to call him with. So if you find that your guy is not reacting positively to that word you used, use some other name instead. There are plenty of cute nicknames out there, so go for something else.
Tip# 4: Base your nickname on the nickname your boyfriend calls you with. For instance, if your boyfriend calls you ‘kitten’ call him ‘tiger’. If he calls you ‘Princess’ call him ‘My Prince’. You can also use names of popular comic/movie/Television characters, like for instance:
- Romeo and Juliet
- Superman and Supergirl
- Tarzan and Jane
- Pebbles and Bam-Bam
- Cinderella and Prince Charming
- Daredevil and Electra
- Batman and Catwoman
- RobinHood and Marion
- Neo and Trinity
Tip# 5: If your boyfriend knows any other language like Spanish or Japanese for that matter, find out a romantic equivalent in that language and use it as a nickname. For instance, ‘Mi Amor’ which translates to ‘my love’ in Spanish, or ‘Cheri’ which translates to ‘dearest’ in French.
