Cute & Creative Nicknames For Redheads

Standing out from the crowd is par for the course for redheads. Like a beacon on top of your head, it’s a conversation starter, main and dessert, all wrapped up into one.

Being rare and radiant, it’s no surprise that a redhead’s hair colour can be their defining feature, so why not use it in a nickname? Here are some certifiably cute and creative ones, perfect for your favourite ginger…

 

Annie

As in Little Orphan Annie.
