Cute Nicknames for Short Girls
The following are the cutest nicknames you can call a short girl. These names are best suited to your short girlfriend or cute little sister.

Mini-me – Admire your best friend who’s much smaller than you? “Mini-me” is a perfect nickname – whether you both are evil like Dr. Evil in Austin Powers, or she’s just exactly like you.
Babydoll – Baby dolls are adorable, innocent, and small. Whether you’re dating them or you have a shining personality, “baby doll” is a great and sweet nickname.
Pumpkin – Short in stature, and sometimes plump, “pumpkin” is an adorable nickname for a girlfriend.

Teeny – A great nickname for short girls named Tina, this nickname can also be used for short women in general.
Smalls – Paying homage to The Sandlot from the early ’90s, this nickname was given to the short, dorky guy in the group; however, it can work perfectly for either children or pre-teen females.
Little lady – While this one is generally used between fathers and daughters, it can be used towards other short females, as well.
Snuggle butt – A very cutesy name, snuggle butt is usually what couples refer to each other as, or to their pets as because of their cute size.
Bite-sized – Referring to the small packs of candy around Halloween time, “bite-sized” is an adorable name for that short and spooky woman in your life.

Hotcakes – Another name from the 1950s, this one is for that firecracker of a woman who comes in a small, but sweet package.
Little bit – A play on “alotta bit”, “little bit” is an adorable nickname for short girls that are bubbly. This is also a great name for girls that are named Brittany/Britney.
Tater tot – Yet another cutesy nickname that doubles as a good, “tater tot” is fantastic for those short girls who are rough around the edges, but still enjoyable.
Goober – A cute name that refers to the small, delicious chocolate-covered roasted peanuts, this is a great name for girls who are adorable, sweet, and short!
Short stuff – We’ve heard this one a thousand times, but it never gets old; a great nickname for that petite lady in your life.

Funny Nicknames for Short Girls
We can’t all be cute, sometimes we need to be mean to short girls, and these funny nicknames for short girls will help us do just that.
Firecracker – A spicier nickname for short, crazy, and talkative women that pack a punch. Firecrackers are generally small, but offer a big show!
Freezer – You might not have heard this one before, but this relates to the large freezers that you have to bend down to use. In calling her a “freezer,” you essentially have to bend down to reach her.
Deep freezer – If she is even shorter, “deep freezer” is another nickname.
Shrimp – We know that shrimp is one of the smaller seafood that people eat, and shrimp is an equally well-known funny nickname for kids or short girls.
Small fry – Speaking of food, “small fry” is another common funny nickname for short girls.
Half-pint – We’re huge fans of food here, and we think that “half-pint” is the perfect funny nickname for girls who are rambunctious. Generally, half pints are small but tasty! Another use of this nickname is “pint-sized”.
Daddy long legs – Girls obviously aren’t daddies, and those that are short won’t have long legs. “Daddy long legs” is the ultimate unique and funny nickname.
Booster – Is that girl in your life so short that she needs a booster seat? Booster is the perfect, androgynous (and super funny) nickname for her!
Tootie – We all know those releases of air from our derriere – those small, quiet, and shy ones that are referred to as a “toot.” If the girl you know is quiet and petite, this is a fun nickname for them!
Pipsqueak – A name that’s usually used as a tease between shy people, it’s a cute way of referencing a short female friend that you’re interested in.
Squirt – A nickname that’s usually shared between an older brother or father figure and young girl, “squirt” is one that’s loved or hated for those that are short. The aforementioned refers to a small squirt that comes out of a cheap squirt gun.
Freshmen – A nickname that’s given to those who are younger and short, as if they’re the new meat in high-school, despite what their current age is.
Ankle biter – The term “ankle biter” refers to those small yappy dogs, and doubles as a term for extremely short girls that are talkative.
