Historic Couple Nicknames

cute couple nicknames for her

What did that 19th Century cad call the Lady of Manners? Some of these historical nicknames for couples are pretentious and funny, but mostly, they are sweet and super romantic pet names.

  1. Dove – (1386) like the bird, this term is usually for a young, innocent woman
  2. Poppet – (1390) usually used for a dainty or small person
  3. Cinnamon – (1405) the spice of life; comes from Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales”: ‘My faire bryd, my swete cynamome.’
  4. Honeysop – (1405) another play on sweetness, literally meaning a piece of bread dripping with honey
  5. Mopsy – (1582) from ‘mop’ meaning “fool,” as in we are all fools in love; it is usually given to young women or those small in stature; you may not want to use this term now as it can mean a dowdy or unkempt woman in the UK
  6. Bawcock – (1601) a term used between men to mean “fine fellow” or “my good man” from the French phrase beau coq “fine cock.”
  7. Old Thing – (1625) refers not necessary to old age, but of the lifetime you have spent or hope to spend with your partner

  5. bruh yall really missing out on cutie,honey,munchkin,sweetie,muffin,precious,baby,kitten,sugar,baby boy,darling,buttercup,dear,teddy bear,love,pudding(my personal fave)

  6. I’m the “other woman”. Please don’t judge…it didn’t happen on purpose, and I tried to pull back for months. After a year half now, his names for me are “Miss”, “Princess”, and “Babe”.I used to call him baby, he hated it. Finally told me he wants me to call him my “Daddy”. So it’s that, and “Mr” and believe me, he deserves those nicknamesss.

  7. I need a couple name for my friends. The boy is called Israel and the girl is Precious what name do you think is gonna suit them

  8. i need a name for my boyfriend his name is darencho he is brown eyes and brown hair and green eyes. He is loving and caring

    i like this names on the list but you shud add “yummers” “plop monger” and “texy sexy”

    please like me and comment my name is julian

  9. I usually call my boyfriend “little Crunchwrap supreme” or “Schmookie Pookie Poo BOo Bear” he doesn’t like these and idk why. Please suggests new ones it’s an emergency

  10. my boyfriend is sexy and has short blond hair and he has glasses he holds my hand and my nick names for him are hubby honey babe baby my prince my king my love sweetheart and sweetie pie and love.

  11. My girlfriend started calling me bubs and it’s the cutest thing. It always makes both of us happy. We’re considered a same-sex couple (I identify as non-binary but that doesn’t always come across) and we are both going on fifteen. I want a really special and unique nickname that no one else has. I’m fluent in French so I thought I could do something with that, I just don’t know what. My name is Anstryx and hers is Sammie. Any ideas?

  12. my bf name is fabian he’s light skin, has brown eyes, brown super curly hair, he’s also a Leo, he has this big-ass puppy eyes and long-ass lashes I be calling him either bubba, sunshine, or chicken nugget cuz he’s so adorable, I want a nickname for him

  13. I need a nickname for my husband his name is rajesh. It should be in the sense of expressing my love. Plz suggest

  14. My fiance is soon to return to the USA, from his last mission with the USA army. We are to be married by Christmas. He calls me sunshine. Please help me think of a nickname for him?? We have been together for 3 years now.

    • That’s not that odd, but only since it is your grandma calling you that. It would be completely different if it was a friend or something like that was calling you that. Hope this helps!

    • Yeah. Kinda. But maybe you know he has his own reasons. Or he just wants to annoy you. My grandfather often calls me Lazy. Sometimes, he’s calling me names like sleepyhead. Well, just sharing.

    • It’s from the Great Gatsby. It’s Jay Gatsby’s catchphrase. It’s an old-timey term, that his character is famous for using, demonstrating an infectious familiarity with everyone he encounters. It’s part of his constructed image.

  15. I suggest you add some of these: Sunshine, Starshine, Moonlight, My Star/Shooting Star, Venus(Her), My Universe. I love nicknames that have that poetic vibe to it because it feels genuine and sweet. These could apply to couples who have a strong connection and a deeper bond (and those who have a love for astronomy).

    Here are some of the others: My River/Riverlily, Apple of My Pie/Apple, My Infinity/Infinity, My Fate, My Nightingale, My Eternity

    And if you don’t mind me sharing,

    To those who are still wondering for a very unique name or a symbolic name to call their other half, you could go for something silly such as pun names (Mariana – My Marianas Trench) & food names (Cheese Cake, Popcorn).

    For a more symbolic name, you could call your other half from something that has been very meaningful for the both of you in your journey. For example, you both met in a field of flowers (My Sunflower), or both of you have the passion for the night sky (My Starshine).

    And another extra, you could call your other half from iconic or favorite characters from movies, books, series or games. You could also make use of these characters as couple names or partner names. Some examples are Jack & Rose (Titanic) and Yuna & Tidus (FFX).

    Hope I could help. :))

  16. These are good nicknames but y’all should put short stack and short cake is good but can yall add short stack and I picked for my girlfriend pop tart form the list

        • Precious. Polly. Lala. Those are some that could work. But finding a nickname isn’t just about picking a word. I would understand if it’s a best friend or just people in the world wanting to give you a nickname, that’s different, but a lover, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, etc. it’s something important. Yes, it should to be something both you and your partner like, but that doesn’t mean it has to be ‘Precious’. My partner and I have many nicknames, but the ones we go by aren’t something you would find on this list. Okay, one was on this list, but it wasn’t because I was given the nickname ‘Flame’ for no reason, I have very thick, curly, red hair. My grandfather gave me that nickname, but my partner is the one who uses it. My nickname for them is Mars. When I first met them, I was a freshmen in high school and they were a junior in high school. They have a common last name of Martin. Both their first, middle, and last names are all common, but I took that a step further. I’ve been in love with the stars and the universe for as long as I can remember. So when I heard her last name was Martin, it clicked in my head, I would call them Mars. Now the stars are significant to both of us. We go stargazing all the time. So the message I’m trying to say is that a nickname isn’t just a nickname, a nickname is something special. A nickname is another word for love.
          -Burning With Passion-

  17. My boyfriend is a smartass, know it all, manly, hates the corney cliche names. His name is Ryan. I do call him Ry but I need a relationship nickname that he’ll like.

  18. My bf calls me luvbug, Queen, babyboo. I just call him sweetheart and recently Ebony king because he’s very dark, goofy and smiles always. Can you help me with cute names i can call him?

  19. I have a “not boyfriend” as I like to call it, it’s been going on a bit more than 3 moths (We haven’t been on a date before..)
    He uses a bunch of cute, cheesy ‘pickup lines’ (I guess you could call them that), he’s funny, cute (generalized term), and understands me.
    I don’t know if it’d be too soon to give him a nickname but I want to start calling him Peanut, what do you think? Any suggestions?

    • Well alrighty then, you go girl, but you should probably keep that nickname in the bedroom or you’ll embarrass your grandma. LOL!

  20. My fiance is: handsome, sexy, brown eyes & dark hair, CEO, very romantic, great lover, loving, tender, he’s got it all
