  1. these were insanely helpful!! my friend is so happy she now has a wide range of nicknames for her sweet charming baby boy connor x

  2. Heyyyy. So my bf’s name is connor and I am trying to find a name for him. He calls me Rubycakes and I want something as sweet and innocent as that. Pls let me know. For rn I call him crack-head connor but pls let me know.

    • I call my husband Connor “Connifer” and “Conniferous” , a play on him being tall and strong like a conifer tree. He much prefers it to his sisters’ calling him “Connie” all his life. He’s adopted it as his gaming aliases and it caught on with his brother and friends, who tease that when he trips and falls he goes down like a tree!

  3. Anyone have a name for my bf? he calls me sunshine but idk what to call him. His name is Connor. I was thinking charming? Maybe?

  4. Why am I low-key dissapointed that Connor Murphy isn’t listed as one of the fictional characters with this name?
    Anywho, I use ‘Connie’ and ‘Conn’ when writing. For whatever reason, Google Spellcheck doesn’t seem to recognize “Connor” as the proper spelling, it’s always auto correcting to “Conner”.
