This one is my favorite for obvious reasons because my own little one is called…Chikoo 🙂
No, no don’t decide yet…scroll down so many more nicknames waiting to be picked!

Hehehe! I have a thing for fruits no? Well this was my choice in case I had a girl! Well, someday if the god bless me again! 😛

Another one of my favorites as my little sister had this nickname. Yes I was jealous, but I love her so much. Even too this day we call her that Kitty…kitto..tito….all variations come out at family meets.

Pikoo, Piku
A nice one. Had a cousin named Pikoo, didn’t like him very much! But don’t let my grudges get in the way! Choose on!

Piya and Riya are beautiful girls name!

Short and sweet, go for Shibu.

Go for this nickname, if it appeals to you

Sweet and short beautiful nickname.

Again a familiar one. My Mami’s daughter, going to be married this May! Beautiful girl, beautiful name!

Quite a wanderlust name! All you travel freaks are sure to love this one!



You wouldn’t believe it but one of my cousin;s chacha was named Titu! Awesome uncle!

Yes, yes Golu. Had a couple of cousins named Golu. Liked one, hated the other! Well that’s me. But do mother’s think that if they name their little one Golu he will in fact become Golu? 🙂 A mom can only wish!

Molu and Moli are very cute girls nicknames!

Knew someone named Gaddu. Sounds similar!


Gubli, Guddu, Guddi, Gudiya
All baby nicknames reflecting the doll that your little one is!

An age old favorite! I think every baby is called babu affectionately.

A nice modern nickname for your to be brat!

A refreshing nickname if there ever was one! 😛

A good nickname. In fact I know someone who’s actual name is Sunny. So, there you go two in one!

Kesu and Keshu..go for it if you like them.

Yes one too made my short list, but in the end I chose another!

A nice nickname especially for our Vishnu Bhakts.

Silky, Softy
Both are good nicknames for your cute little baby girl!



Well! Kareena sure turned out to be a babe! Awesome nickname for Bollywood fans!

it was quite a popular nickname. Maybe time to give it a spin again?

Well who can forget Karishma Kapoor when mentioning her younger sister.


All Billu fans unite :)! Your little one would be happy to share this famous nickname from our childhood comic days! Do they even print them anymore?

Tweetee Tweetu
My neighbor’s baby was named Tweetu…he was my baby’s first friend so this nickname also holds a special place in my heart.

We did tease a lot of children who were named Gopu! Times have changed, in case you like this nickname do go for it!

Galti se nashte main kha maat lena! LOL!!!! A cute nickname!


Pihu pihu kya hain….this was an old hindi song if I remember correctly! Or was it ilu ilu…

Short and sweet nickname for your little darling!

Hrithik Roshan made this one famous didn’t he!

The Bengali touch! I love this nickname!

She won’t have trouble remembering any nursery rhymes! Will surely become the teacher’s pet! Rosy lips, dimple chins..

Your child will thank you later for this nickname! who doesn’t love Tony Stark!

An old one, more popular among Tier II cities.

Babli Bablee Bubbly
Any way you write it, this nickname gives the picture of a cute, pig tailed girl bouncing about! Full of energy!

A good old fashioned nickname!

My friend’s baby. Love to call him Shinu singh….a fun nickname

Again, a nice Bengali touch! Loving nickname.

Another nice nickname for your little girl. Just don’t let her have too many when she grows up! 😛

Ohhooo…fruits again…I am bound to love it

Hahahaha….let me stop laughing for a while!!! My mamaji’s nickname was pappu and so was my hubbys! Rahul Gandhi has made this the MOST popular nickname on the list! It is still popular in small cities though!

An affectionate nickname. I used to call my baby bacchu singh for quite sometime before someone told me that in UP a lot of famous “gundas” have this name! LOL!!!

For your little angel – the perfect nickname
Yes a nice nickname, though I was never fond of it. It always made my mouth water for some or the other sweet dish..

Well, all this talk of ladoos, has made me hungry and I am off to gorge on something delicious, while you carry on with your decision making. Be sure to leave a comment, letting us know which one worked for you.

Before zeroing on one, take a moment to consider that the nickname is not embarrassing for your baby. Though he looks tiny right now, the years will fly and it will not be long before his friends begin to tease him.

For example, I had a cousin who was nicknamed “Funti”. Now on the face of it, it’s a nice pet name. But my cousin was teased so much for it that now he says he will never pass on such an affliction to his child!

While, this reaction could be considered extreme, be sure that the name that you are so fondly choosing for your little one does not end up causing trouble for him down the line!

Going for a too unique nickname or one that is difficult to pronounce can also have its pitfalls like people being hesitant to use them – for fear of pronouncing it wrong and offending you!
