What is a pet name?
A pet name is a nickname or special name for a caregiver to call their little or vice versa. It’s an intimate, personal and fun way of making your little, middle, ABDL or otherwise small person feel loved and cared for and is a great way to strengthen your relationship.
Pet names can be super cute, loving, funny, or even a bit naughty and can help your little feel happy, small, loved, protected and all warm and fuzzy inside.
Pet names and age regression:
I learned quite a lot while I was researching this article. I discovered that many littles and age regressors actually have a specific “little name” that they use while they are in littlespace, in a state of age regression.
For some people this part of them is such a big part of their personality that they truly feel like two people in one mind. This kind of little may prefer to be called by their little name than a more generic pet name.
Why should I use a pet name?
Pet names for your littles can be like a secret codename in public. Most people won’t bat an eye if they hear a pet name, it’s pretty normal even in non Cgl relationships but it can be a fun way to bring a little bit of your relationship in to the outside world.
Being called by a little/pet name can be a great way to help your little get in to littlespace. Some caregivers may have different pet names depending on whether their little is behaving or misbehaving…

Love this one, all littles are treasures! 🏆
Kind of like treasure, makes me think of something small and precious.

This came up a few times, I hadn’t heard it before but it turns out it’s a gender neutral pet name and can also be a first name.
- Naughty Girl / Boy
Needs no explanation. Naughty littles must be called accordingly!
To me, this sounds kind of sarcastic like what you would call someone if they just asked a silly or naive question 😂 Cherries are also a symbol of a partnership, given that they often share a stem.
So we grew together like to a double cherry, seeming parted, but yet an union in partition, two lovely berries molded on one stem.
– Shakespeare 🍒
This was a cute one I hadn’t heard before. It would be perfect for a little who is kind of clumsy (in a cute way) or who likes bees.

Another good one, strong sense of protection and devotion and reinforces the little dynamic helping your little feel safe and secure in littlespace.
A fun, friendly pet name to poke a bit of fun at your little in a friendly, caring way 😛 In the UK “Dummy” means the same as “Pacifier” in the US. Not sure if it’s the same anywhere else, leave a comment if you know!
Short and tasty, kind of like a cupcake. I can see how this works!
You can’t go wrong with this one! A genuinely lovely thing to call your partner, possibly the most endearing term on the list.
Thanks for reading!
This was a really fun article to write but it’s only my second article ever so if you have any suggestions especially with the layout and writing, or for any future article ideas please feel free to leave me a comment or use the contact page to get in touch.
I learned a lot about when I was researching this article about what names work and what ones don’t, and discovered that “Babe” is almost universally hated for some reason 😄 So maybe don’t use that one.
I really hope this gave you some ideas to use in your own relationship, let me know in the comments if you have any more suggestions.
