I find myself talking about my Fiance a lot, obviously because he's a big part of my life, but I'm not a fan of the word as weird as that might sound. I don't want to just call him my boyfriend as I am happy to be engaged and when I'm talking to people who don't know him I can't just use his name and hope people know who I'm talking about. So are there any other words for fiance?
I just don't like always having to say, "My fiance", "Me and my fiance", "My fiance and I".

Fiancé is the most appropriate word you could use.
I understand where you're coming from, you don't want to be seen as one of those crazy, ludicrous, over-the-top annoying women in romantic comedies who constantly talks about her fiancé just so that she can hear herself say the word over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, annoying the f*** out of all the normal people she's around.
But the reality is that you're very probably not being perceived as anything close to that. You don't live in a comedy and you're not annoying the sh*t out of your friends, and you're certainly not being pretentious. You ARE engaged.
I would recommend using his actual NAME if you feel like you're using "fiancé" too much in conversation. Once someone knows that you have a fiancé and that his name is David, you can simply refer to him as David. That should at least take a little bit of the edge off.
Anway, soon enough, the time will come you won't ever be able to call him by that term again, so just enjoy it while it lasts.0
