Naming your Little?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! So I was wondering if anybody gave names to their little side besides "baby" or "princess" or "kitten". I've been looking at baby names all day to try and give a better definition to my little side when she's around. (i.e., "Lorelei wants to play!")

 

It's been really difficult to find a new name that fits my adult self as well as my little self. I've really come to like the name Lorelei, but my Big doesn't. . . But then again, we do have very different tastes in cute.

 

Should I even bother looking further? This new name would be only for her, not to be used outside little time. Or do you think I should keep looking and find something he likes, too? I am his little girl, after all.

I can understand the desire to have a little name other than the "typical" ones you mentioned. Have you thought about a shortened or nicknamed version of your real name?

Sometimes I occasionally refer to myself as 'Baby' or 'The Baby' just for fun. For example if my Daddy asks what I want for drink I will say," Baby wants a juice!" Haha, I'm not a egomaniac I swear, I just do it for kicks. I also use my name. I see my little side as a extension of myself and my personality, and I feel like having a separate name for it would detach it in a way. Nonetheles, I have seen people do renaming. If I were you, I would select a name that's fitting for both yourself and your SO. If you don't, why should he have to call you that? I don't like calling my partner babe, or master, so I don't and he's fine with it just like I don't expect him to call me mistress or mommy when we switch rolls. It's all about compromise :)

I've always liked the idea of having someone rename me. I've probably asked pretty much every boyfriend(and a few really close friends) I've ever had if they could name me what name would they give me. No one has actually taken this more than joking though. I've never thought of naming just a part of me though...

I agree with what others have said in that my little side is so much a part of who I am that to use another name other than my real wouldn't feel right. But, if you are considering naming your little side then I think as much as you like the name Lorelei, it might be a good idea to pick something you and your Big both like. If he's not into calling you that then it kinda defeats the purpose somewhat. Maybe you could go to references like kids movies or something like Boo in monsters inc!

 

Good luck with it! :)

Unfortunately my name is not one that can be shortened. My first name is three letters; I go by a shortening of my middle which is still pretty short. I'm a little outta luck when it comes to using my own name!

I feel like quoting everyone in response is a bit redundant, so I'll just double-post here!

 

Thank you everyone for your feedback! It's interesting. I imagined "renaming" would actually be quite popular, but that doesn't seem to be the case so far! I agree with the statement that being little is part of me; however, I don't even like my real name so being able to change it to something I like feels a lot better!

 

Again, nicknames aren't really what I'm looking for. "Boo" is cute, but not me.

mmmm, I don't really have a name for her, I kinda of refer to her as my little monster, Daddy has a special pet name he calls me when he notices me being little.  

 

I find it weird though when Daddy calls me by my real name even when I am big, as we always just call each other by pet names unless trying to get attention of each other. 

 

I hope you find the right name for your little! It's a neat idea to name her especially if that is something you need! Maybe try looking up meanings to name, like a description of what you feel like when your in your little zone, like playful, innocence, fierce, etc.

We never call each other by our real names either! Sometimes I have to remind myself to use his real name every once in a while, because I can't default to shouting a pet name to catch his attention at work.

 

I should definitely search by meaning, I forgot you could do that!!

I wanted a name for my little side because we often referred to her as little which felt like we were talking about a different person. It's not even really a name, it's just a nickname I suppose.

I have a Little name too ^^

I don't like using 'she' or 'her' to talk about my Little side, and I don't consider it to be a different personality.

But I still like having a Little name. For me it's similar to other nicknames.

My Daddy asked me to choose a Little name when we started exploring DD/lg. I quite naturally chose a first name I always liked. I often used it as a child when I played with other children. I hate my real first name anyway, and I avoid using it as much as possible. I've always prefered when people used nicknames for me, so I feel like my Little name is just another nickname. 

But I noticed my Daddy ends up not often calling me by my Little name. He never calls me by my real first name either. He usually calls me kitten, princess, baby or other sweet names instead. We still use my Little name though. When my Daddy asked for a personalized tag for a stuffie, he chose to use my Little name on it. On my Build-A-Bear's certificate, it's also my Little name that's written. On my coloring books and on several other Little things I own, if I write a name, it's usually my Little name. If I make a drawing for my Daddy, it's natural for me to sign it with my Little name. I also feel more comfortable using my Little name with other Littles.

Anyway, if you want to name your Little side, I think it's important to find a name you really like and really feels right for you :) I'm sorry I can't really help you on how to find a Little name, since I didn't really have to think about mine and it came quite naturally. I was lucky my Daddy liked it too. I hope you'll find the good one for you too ^^ (and one that your Daddy will also like)

I love this topic! I've always been very big on names and naming anyway haha My last Daddie and I named my little. We refer to her in 3rd person. For me it's easier to switch into Big and little by having a lot of separation. Another thing Ive noticed is that by seperating "Her" (my little) from "me", is that it's become easier for me to stand up for myself in multiple settings. I dont always feel like what I want or what Im feeling is important, but if I can conceptualize myself as a child that needs to be protected then it's a lot easier for me. I also think that now that I dont have a Daddy around it's easier to give care to myself because I think of it more like caring for a child and everyone knows children REQUIRE care. <3 I feel like I kinda took this off subject. Sorry about that :/ I hope it helps you though!

My Daddy often uses a variation on my real name when he recognizes that I have slipped from big to little space. It gives me sense of wonder that he can pick it out and that I respond seamlessly. I love my daddy and I love my little me too!! Xx

For now, we kind of just settled on "baby". It's subtle enough to be used in public.

 

It wasn't what I was looking for but he already has trouble calling me by my middle name rather than my first, so I guess I'll just have to accept it for now.

When I was first introduced to DD/LG by my ex, we both expressed worry by revealing my real name to complete strangers. I've always been open with my name and you'll notice that I am open with it on this site as well, but at the time, I was just too worried about a lot of different things.  Plus, the little side of me wanted a cute little name that people would call me.. Thus, Little Miss was born!  Although, honestly, I think of my Little name more of Lumia/Luna.

I have a few friends that after I became more active in the community and more open about it, that realized they liked it and did the same thing I did. One of them went by a catlike name, because it made her feel more Little. 

EDIT: One of the girls I knew in a BDSM community was an aspiring "Doll", meaning she wanted to be a real life Doll. Her Master/Daddy/boyfriend was referred to as "Mister" which I thought was adorable. Her nickname was "Doll".

I'm so lucky that both my first and middle name have cute nicknames that I give my little. :) I'm pretty new at this but I feel like it was meant to be when I thought of keeping my nicknames while in little space. I think you'll find one that fits you perfectly! Then you'll be so happy. :) good luck little friend!

My Poppybear calls me several sweet names like babybear, babybutt, stinkbug, little one.. things like that but my little name has always been Piggy. This has been my little name since I was 9 even though I didn't know there was actually a term for what I am at that age. (non sexual).

For me personally I didn't get renamed, my daddy calls me "baby" and other things along those lines. When I start to get into my little bubble as I started calling it, my daddy will call me baby girl more then anything or even my full name, Since I go by a nickname. I normally dislike my full name but in my daddy's case i enjoy it, it gives more of a sense of being a little.

I don't need that different name, some might enjoy it more to have it but for me personally I like having my name as it. :wub: :wub:

I enjoy being a little and its a side of me I'm proud to have and express with my daddy, but it can be different with daddy's, caregivers and such.
