10 Adorable Baby Boy Names With Cute Abbreviations

1. Theodore

A very dashing and respectable name on its own but super cute if you shorten it! How about Ted or Teddy?

2. Robert

Rob, Bob, Bobby; there are so many options when it comes to variations of Robert which is already a very nice, very user-friendly name as it is.

3. Benjamin

A popular name now, but it almost always ends up shortened to its super cute abbreviation, Ben. But my favourite is Benjy!

4. Arthur

A little old-fashioned for your taste? How about Artie? Very cute and very current in terms of name trends.

5. Maxwell

The long version of this name wouldn’t be among my favourites but I love Max, short, simple and perfect for any little monkey!

6. Callum

This is a gorgeous name but Cal is perfect for anyone who wants a name that is short and sweet but not very common.

7. David

A very popular one in Ireland, David’s everywhere are nicknamed Dave and Davy, usually when they start school and it just sticks with them.

8. Dexter

Dexter is already an unusual but underestimated name but Dex is cute and unique. A wonderful choice for your little boy.

9. William

There are loads of options for boys named William; Will, Bill, Billy, or you could stick with the regal name William.

10. Oliver

While Oliver is a perfectly nice name, I would be inclined to shorten it to Ollie, easy to say, easy to spell and sounds great!
