Cute Baby Boy Nicknames

Hey new mom and dad, welcome to parenthood! Now that your little one is finally here, it must feel so good to hold him in your arms and gaze into his beautiful eyes. Looking at his adorable face and cute smile, your heart may be melting away, making you call him with different cute boy nicknames all the time.

But, nicknames no longer need to be any word that comes to your mind randomly. They can be something you relate to or best describe your baby's nature. You can finalise some pet names for baby boy by following these tips:

  1. Shorten the official name

    Choosing a nickname can be as difficult as choosing the actual name for your baby. If you're looking for an easy way out, the best way is to settle for a short and sweet name that's pretty straightforward. You can choose the initial letters or the last letters of your baby boy or baby girl’s name. If the name is too long, you can also choose the middle letters of the baby girl or baby boy’s name. For example, Abhi from Abhishek, Raj from Hansraj, or Avi from Ravindra.

  2. The combination can do the trick

    If you want to choose a unique name, then you can try some fun combinations. You can merge the first and the middle names or the first and the last names.

  3. Try synonyms

    You can also choose synonyms of your baby's actual name for nickname. But before that, you'll have to find out the meaning of the actual name. This way, you can go for a perfect baby boy nickname without hampering the beautiful meaning of the original name. For example, if you named your son Haidar, Leo, Kasar, etc., you could select a pet name like Simba or Lion cub for him.

  4. The first impression is the last

    If you believe in the proverb, then stick to the naming idea that first struck your mind. So, you can pick a pet name for your baby boy based on something that came to your mind when you saw your little one for the first time.

  5. Go for a fictitious name

    Love a fictional character? Whether a popular cartoon character or a lead character from your favourite movie or book, you can use it as your baby's nickname. For example, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, or Piglet.

  6. Pass on the legacy

    You might be attached to the nickname your parents gave you. So, why not pass it on to the apple of your eye? You can use it as it is or make slight modifications to it before using it for your baby. For example, if your parents called you Angel, you could call your baby Angel or Little Angel.

Things to Remember

Remember, you will be calling your baby by his nickname every day. So, here are certain tips to keep in mind:

  • Acceptance:

We understand you want to call your baby with a unique and distinct name, but don't make it unacceptable for him. It should be that your baby doesn't mind you calling him the nickname when he grows up to be an adult.

  • Avoid further twists:

Fixate on one nickname; avoid altering it multiple times to make it more unique. It will lose its essence and relevance.

  • Short-n-sweet:

Nicknames have to be easy to pronounce and remember that they sound soothing to ears. So, make sure your baby's nickname is short and straightforward.

  • Non-abusive:

Nicknames should not give others a chance to tease your little one. So, pick one that doesn't embarrass your child in public.

  • Unique or popular:

In the end, the decision is in your hands. Going for an absolute unique name can sometimes make it awkward, while picking a popular name may be boring.

To help you with this, we've curated a list of cute and funny baby boy nicknames that you can call your newborn until his toddler years.
