100+ Popular Nicknames for Short People

What are some nicknames for short people?

To be honest, most nicknames based on physical attributes can be offensive, which is why context is everything. If you call your short boyfriend a pet name based on his height, and he loves it, no harm done. However, you call a stranger a name based on their height, and they are insecure about their height; they would most likely find the name offensive.

So, apply wisdom before you call someone any of these names for short people.
