While parents usually pick baby names for their beautiful or cool meanings (e.g., names that mean fire and powerful boy names), many pet names sometimes don’t make sense (e.g., Cutie Patootie or Dumpling).

What makes these nicknames different from traditional names is that you and other family members can use different pet names for your baby.

We’ve collected 375 cute nicknames for your little girl, plus some adorable girl dog names for your new puppy.
