Slight Changes

The easiest of all of the ways to create nicknames is to create a variation of your friend’s name. Call them by their initials, or try to make a new word out of their initials. Take their first and last name, and combine them into one word. Simply call them by the first syllable of their name, which may not be unique, but is efficient. The choices are endless.

Noticeable Traits

Think about the traits that define your friend. What is she most known for: her tired eyes or her fabulous clothes? If she’s always tired, steal from Snow White and call her Sleepy. If she always looks like she’s ready for a fashion shoot, call her Tyra. Just be careful not to come up with a nickname that’s insulting. You don’t want to lose your pal over something so small!

Pet Names

If you don’t feel like getting creative, you can resort to using common nicknames. If you’re super close with your friend, call her ‘wifey.’ If you want to go traditional, just call her ‘darling.’ If you’re the best of friends, you can get away with using any pet name that you’d use in a romantic relationship. Don’t worry if people give you weird looks. Show your affection for them in whatever way that makes you happy.
