As an expecting parent, picking a name for your child can be a very exciting, yet time-consuming task. You have to decide if you want more traditional names, if you want to pass down a family name, or maybe pick one of the cute names that are popular right now. Either way, many people see this as a lot of pressure since their child will have to live with this name for the rest of their life.

Cute Boy names, Cute Girl Names
Luckily, there are many websites like ours and books that can give you ideas for cute baby names. One thing to keep in mind while looking through cute names for your child is that the name grows with him or her. For example, cute names for boys that are popular right now, but will also fit as the child grows are Oliver, Levi and Aiden. There are also cute names for girls that top the 100 top baby names list right now, but will also be appropriate as she grows, like Ava, Emma, and Sophia. A unique and cool name can range from a name of a flower as a cute girl name to the name of a famous baseball player as a cute boy name. Many cute names still continue to derive from books such as the bible, places names and other historical or mythological names.
Cute Names vs. Nicknames
Additionally, there are some more traditional names that can be shortened to cute baby names or nicknames, but can also be used in full as the child becomes an adult. Names like Jackson and William may sound more mature, but can easily be shortened to cute names or nicknames for boys, like Jax and Billy. The same goes for cute names for girls, while they are younger you may want to refer to an Abigail as Abby or Charlotte as Charlie. This way the child has options when they are old enough to have an opinion, but you still get to pick a cute name to use for him or her as a child.
Cute Names and meanings
To some expecting parents, it goes further than just a name. Some new parents give a lot of thought to the meaning behind the name they choose for their child. There are quite a few names that are very popular right now, but that also have cute name meanings; including Belle which means “beauty”, or Aiden, which means “little fire”. If deciding on a name based on cute name meanings is what is important to you, our website is here to provide that sort of information. If the origin of the name is a more important factor for your baby name decision, see our wide list of different baby name origins to search for a name by its origin.
Why choose a cute baby name
No matter how you pick a name for your child, whether it is from the top 100 list or if you pick one based on the meaning behind the name, it is important to be happy with what you’re picking and to think about your child as he or she grows into an adult. Maybe having a cutesy name is not something they want to go to college or on job interviews with. But giving them the option to alter the name as needed, can be an excellent alternative to ensure you’re both happy in the short term, and in the long run. The meaning of the name you give your child could also have as much of an effect on them as it does on you, so it is important to put a lot of thought into this process.
