Cute nicknames and pet names to call your English boyfriend or girlfriend

If your other half is British and you want to add romance and affection into your relationship then this post is for you.

I’ve comprised a list of the most popular cute names and pet names you can call your English boyfriend or girlfriend. The below are commonly used in Britain to express love and affection and none of them are offensive in any way.

Bubba, Bubbs

Bubba and Bubbs come from the word baby and are an endearing way to call your other half. Baby is one of the most common words and you might be using it too. So Bubba and Bubbs would be something new and interesting to say.


Pet name bunny

Bunny or bunny rabbit is a cute and affectionate pet name. You can call your girlfriend or boyfriend a bunny and they will love that because bunnies are so adorable.

Cutie pie, sweetie pie

Cutie pie or sweetie pie is a term of endearment that English couples use when they consider their partner adorable or charming in some way. This name can be used for men as well as women.


I’d say that darling is a more grown-up way to call your boyfriend or girlfriend. If you love British period drama then you must’ve heard them say ‘darling’ a myriad of times.

I find this word very charming and sophisticated and I definitely like when my English husband addresses me as a darling.

Honey and Sweetheart

Honey and sweetheart used by both – parents to address their children and lovebirds to address one another.

Personally, I don’t call my husband honey or sweetheart. These words just don’t appeal to me. However, people do love them and I know in American movies you will hear a lot of honey and sweetheart.


cute names for boyfriend or girlfriend

The Cherub is a little baby angel. Parents call their baby a little cherub because babies are so beautiful and perfect. Couples have also adopted this word as a term of endearment towards one another.

Little one

I don’t think this word should be used for a man. The word little will definitely hurt him. However, it’s a great way to show your affection towards your girlfriend. Girls always want to feel little. If she is a feminist and a warrior then stick to darling.


Who didn’t have a teddy bear as a child? Children and adults love them and they are just so soft and cuddly.

Hubby, hubba

Hubby or hubba is one of the ways to call your husband. Some girls use it for their boyfriend as a joke.


Pandas are such cute animals. They are very friendly and playful. Although I’d avoid it if your partner feels vulnerable and embarrassed about her/his own weight.

These 6 signs will tell you whether your British guy likes you. And if you are admiring your crush from a distance then it’s time to master the art of small talk.
