Create Your Own Pet Name for Your Lover

Can't find the perfect pet name for your boyfriend or husband? Try to come up with your own! A pet name can be based on his looks, character, name, hobby, or other factors like his favorite car, pet, color, or place. For example, if he likes fast cars, and his name is Robert you could call him "Speedy Bob". If your guy has a dog he really loves and he is totally into computers you could call him "Puppy Geek", and so on.
