You also have diablillo.
The differences are just nuances. The suffix -ito makes things and people sound small, cute and affectionate; -ejo is used for small and/or naughty or slightly derrogative, but sometimes it sounds funny; -illo is like -ito, but for even smaller things.

diablito, diablillo, diablejo are diminituves, so the sound "loving".

Normally applied to children:

diablejo m. Dim. de "diablo", aplicado afectuosamente a los niños.
