Do you have a lot of friends? How do you call them – by their names or nicknames?
Well, nicknames are cool! Some are cute, some are sweet, some are witty, and some are totally senseless!
Whatever it is for you, calling your best friends by their nicknames shows how fond you are of them. And this contributes a lot to your bond.
After all, they are your FRIENDS! They support you no matter what, stay by your side during your ups and downs and listen to all your serious, silly, and emotional talks without judging you. In short, you can just bare your heart to them – about your dreams, your crushes, and your future plans.
And did I tell you how you can gossip with them about just anything and everything?
Also, you can call them whenever you need them – it doesn’t matter what time of the day it is – and they will be there for you. So, when you give your friends a moniker and call them by it, it does boost their sense of belonging!
Do you have any bynames in mind for your best friends, or are you looking for some?
Well, I’m here to make the search easy for you. So, don’t stress.
Best Funny Nicknames for Your Friends
I have listed some of the best cute and funny nicknames for your best friend in this post. But, of course, you can use them for your other friends too. So, why wait?
Let’s get straight to the point!
- Love guru
At least one friend in every friend circle gives love advice to all the others in the group. Is there anyone like that in your group, too, who provides solutions to all your love problems? If yes, then the best nickname for them would be Love Guru!
Is there anyone in your gang who LOVES memes and keeps sending them on your group chat? Then, buddy, you can call them Meme! Sounds good?
Who is the one in your friends’ group that you go to whenever you have some spicy news? Or, who is the one to whom you tell all your secrets as you know that they will NEVER pass them on to anyone? Well, I have a funny byname for them! How about Secrets?
Have you watched the movie “Despicable Me?” Did you like the cute little yellow minions? Well, if you ask me, I liked them so much that I have my mobile cover printed with their picture. Also, I recently bought a case for my iPod in the shape and color of the minions. Yes, I’m THAT obsessed with them! Is there someone among your best friends who is crazy for minions like me? How about calling them Minions?
Now, who doesn’t love chicken nuggets? And is there anyone in your group who is CRAZY for them? Like, whenever you guys hang out in some restaurant and order chicken nuggets, that friend of yours always finishes their plate of nuggets first and then eats from your plates too. Then call them Nugget!
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cutest of them all?” Does this remind you of someone? Does that friend always act cute and cuddly? How about calling them Boo?
Now, we all have at least one friend in our group of friends who LOVES tea to the tee! I mean, I have one, and she always orders tea first whenever we are hanging out. And did I tell you that she can LITERALLY survive on tea? So, Teacup would be the perfect funny moniker for this kind of friend!
What comes to mind when someone says, “Tarzan?” An almost naked man swinging from one tree to the other and fighting with wild animals whenever he needs to, right? Well, Tarzan can be a good nickname for your friend who never backs off from taking risks and trying new things.
Has one of your friends got extremely low immunity power? Do they suffer from cold most of the time of the year? Then, buddy, you can call them Sneezy. Now, they may not like it, but that’s a different story!
- Smart Pants
Every friend’s group has at least one friend who knows it all!
Talk about a new gadget that they already know it. Talk about a new movie that’s going to release that they already know it. And they have answers to all the questions each one you have.
Does this remind you of someone in your friend’s group?
Call them Smart Pants!
When I heard this nickname for the first time, what came to mind was the picture of a broad-shouldered guy friend who is always ready to give you tight yet comfy hugs whenever you feel low or you need them. Is there anyone like this in your friends’ gang? Call him Baloo.
Some people smile at you whenever your eyes meet. And then some people are always smiling. For those friends, Giggly would be the best funny pet name. And this name will fit mostly your girl best friends.
Does your best friend have a good ass? Are they good at dancing too? Then, buddy, you can call them Bum-bum.
Now, there is at least one friend in every group, who is super busy. Because of that, whenever you guys meet, they always carry their laptops with them. And there are even times when they ACTUALLY go for Zoom meetings when you are around! Give them the name Lapy.
- Chatter Box
Some people talk less. Some people talk more. And some people are always talking even if you are least interested in listening. Do you have a friend who falls in the latter category? Then Chatter Box would be a great nickname for them!
Is there anyone in your friend circle who LOVES dogs? And do they plan to have multiple four-legged friends in the near future? Then How about giving them the nickname Wolfy? It would fit them perfectly.

We all love cuddles at some time or the other. It makes us feel warm, cozy, and of course, happy at heart. But is there anyone among your friends who is always up for a cuddle, no matter when and where? You can call them Cuddle.
Best friends LOVE to tease each other! But it becomes annoying when they do it all the time. For those friends, you can choose the name Puffy.
In most groups of friends, you will find one person who always gives mature advice on life and other important things. And the other people of the group seek this person’s help whenever they need some serious advice or solutions. Basically, this person is like an old soul stuck in a young body! Does it sound similar to one of your friends? Call them Oldie.
- Plum Cake
When I was in college, I had this one friend who was an excellent baker. She used to bake ‘yummilicious‘ fruit cakes and bring them for us. And do I need to tell you how much I loved it? So, we used to call her by the name Fruit Cake! Is there a baker in your group too who makes delicious Plum Cake, for example? You can call them Plum Cake.
Do you have any friend who is always ready with questions to ask you as they always have lots of queries in their mind? Call them by funny nicknames, such as Puzzle!
I loved Gems – the colorful, yummy chocolates when I was a kid. After eating Gems, my friends and I used to show the color of our tongues to each other. It was fun in the true sense.
Even now that I have grown up, I still love Gems, and I’m not at all embarrassed to admit that! Gems make me happy and to all the other people who like it. And so, Gems would be the perfect nickname for your friend who makes you happy.

And so, those who are over-emotional laugh hard even at a not-so-funny joke and cry a river at every petty thing.
Do you know someone like the latter?

Baby monkeys are cute, no doubt. But monkeys are generally untidy, and they chatter a lot. But when it comes to people, acting like a monkey means acting inappropriately or behaving silly. Is it very often that you need to tell your best friend not to monkey around? Well, you can give them a funny nickname such as Monkey Baby.
When I was preparing for my board exams, I took some extra math classes. There I became friends with Selena.

People with sensitive skin are always cautious about what goes onto their skin. As you know, they can get bumps, their skin can turn red, and they can even develop rashes if the cream doesn’t suit them. Does it remind you of any of your friends? Then the right name for them would be Bug!
