The names of Swedish children tend to have an air of distinction and aristocracy.

There are a lot of fun avenues to explore in Sweden, which is known for its catchy pop music, and round-the-clock sunshine, and now nicknames are also added to this list.

Nicknames in Sweden for a male like Robert are shortened to Bob, Richard is shortened to Dick, and Andrew is shortened to Andy. It's not like that in Swedish at all. In most cases, the nicknames become somewhat longer, and this lengthening is denoted by an ending that consists of a double consonant and an 'e'.

Nicknames for women are typically shorter than those for men and frequently conclude with the letter 'an'. Elisabeth will be known as Bettan, Birgitta will be known as Gittan, Therese will be known as Tessan, and Mikaela will be known as Mickan.

We have compiled a category list of the top 45 Swedish nicknames for both sexes, many of which are common worldwide (like Kalle, Ebba, and Lukas). Instead, we went deep for some exciting and unusual Swedish names while also including a few current Swedes' personal favorites here and there throughout the list.
