I LOVE cute little nicknames!

I remember when I was looking at baby names when I was pregnant.  I swear I looked at 100s of different baby names!

But something I really wanted was a nickname to go with it!

I wanted to be able to have to ability to use cute nicknames for my little baby and let them have the freedom to go by a different name if they choose to.

Sooo if you’re like me and want a name with some cute nicknames then I’ve got you covered!

Below you’ll find a list of sweet baby girl names with nicknames to go with it!

But first…

What Names have Nicknames?

The type of names that have nicknames to go with them are normally longer.  But not always.

Nicknames that come from names are normally just shortened versions taken from the original form.

Like Johanna and Joan or Susanna and Sue.

And typically names that have nicknames are just there naturally and very easy to find.

Like if I took my example Susanna from earlier you can see that Anna and Ann are obviously there!

See- SusAnna

Or a nickname can just be a cute witty name that you can take from it.

So as you can see nicknames can be found pretty easily!

Now if you’re ready we can go on to the girl names!

But what if the name I want is too hard to make into a nickname?

Well, let’s think of some quick.

Zoey could be Zoe or Z

Ava: A, Av, Avie

Mia: Mimi, Milly

Layla: Lala, Lay, Lila, Lola

Erin: Ronnie, Rinny

Some I was able to create little nicknames or shortened versions from the original name.  Others I just thought of nicknames that I felt were kind of similar and would make sense.

So if the name you want doesn’t naturally have a nickname within it, try looking at some of the nicknames from above.

Maybe one of those nicknames could be a good fit for the girl’s name you want!


So, can I just choose ANY name and have ANY nickname?

I suppose you could if you wanted to.  But I would try to be sure that the nickname makes sense with it.

Like I probably wouldn’t use the nickname Rocky if I was planning on naming my daughter Iowa. (Yes Iowa is an actual girls name lol.)

But like I was kind of saying before, really any name can have a nickname!

You just have to get creative and let it come to you!

Cause normally nicknames have a way of forming by themselves if you just let it happen naturally.

What is a Cute Nickname for a Girl?

Alright so maybe you just want to find a nickname for a girl.  And not necessarily a name with a nickname.

If so, then you can check out these cute nicknames for girls!

A lot of these I even use myself!
