Our baby recently became obsessed with a little teddy bear she was given for participating in a vaccine study. This plush bear goes absolutely everywhere with her. Watching her hug the bear as she toddles around is almost too adorable.


She is barely talking but she still managed to name him: Bear Bear. A creative whiz, clearly.

As time has gone on, her love of Bear Bear has extended to every stuffed animal in the house that looks even slightly like a teddy bear. And of course, they’re all called Bear Bear.

This got me researching a list of better names for a teddy bear. Below you’ll find the fruits of my hours of research, including from my own database of over 2000 names.

Why are stuffed bears called “teddy bears”?

First, why are teddy bears named teddy bear in the first place? Teddy bears are called teddy in reference to president Theodore Roosevelt (source). President Roosevelt was on a hunting trip competition and had failed to kill an animal. His assistants captured and tied up a bear for him to shoot to help him compete.

However, Teddy refused to shoot the bear and called it unsportsmanlike. This made national news and toy makers named Morris and Rose Michtom saw an opportunity to market a soft stuffed bear as “Teddy’s bear.” They were a hit and plush stuffed bears are now ubiquitously known as teddy bears.

History Of The Teddy Bear 

Very few people are aware of how a teddy bear actually came to be, so here is a quick history lesson for those of you that don’t know the history behind the bear.

The teddy bear dates back to Theodore Roosevelt who was nicknamed “Teddy” after refusing to kill a bear they had captured on a hunting trip. The story soon got out and it caught the eye of political cartoonist Clifford K. Berryman.

Morris Michtom who was a local toy shop owner saw the illustration and created a small bear very similar to the one from the illustration. He placed it in his shop window with a sign “Teddy’s Bear.”

The teddy bear toy gained popularity and demand grew so much that it prompted Michton to ask President Roosevelt for his permission to officially name the toy Teddy Bear.

And as they say, the rest is history. The teddy bear is still as popular today and even with all the technologically advanced toys that our children have access to, the humble teddy bear has still not lost its place in their hearts.

The Importance Of Naming A Teddy Bear

Giving a teddy bear a name makes it more real and relatable for a child. It provides them with a sense of ownership and friendship for that bear. 

Children have fantastic imaginations and they use them for everything. But adults often do not see what the child’s imagination does so having a teddy bear offers them the perfect playmate.

Imaginative play is crucial to the healthy development of children, it helps to boost problem-solving skills, language, behavior, and even their understanding of the world around them.

So by giving their teddy a name you provide them with far more than just a name. With that name comes a personality with all the quirks and individuality of our own personalities. Which in turn provides your child with the perfect playmate!

Top Tips For Naming A Teddy Bear

Children are often quick to choose a name for any of their toys and yes they are often the very obvious names such as Bear or Teddy. But this is a testament to their own innocence and also their own age and stage of development.

View in gallery

But if you are struggling to come up with a name here are a few top tips to help you out.

1. Keep it simple

Remember the age of the child that you are gifting the bear to. It is no good choosing a complicated name that they are unable to pronounce.

Children often create this connection to their teddy purely from their name, so if they have a name that they are unable to pronounce then it is unlikely that this connection will be formed.

If the name you have chosen is difficult to pronounce maybe you can still use it as long as it comes with an easier to pronounce nickname.

For example, if you wanted to name the bear Winnie the Pooh after the famous children’s book character then a great nickname would be Pooh.

This would be easy enough for a young child to pronounce and so will help them to form that special connection.

2. Don’t overthink the name

It is great to come up with the perfect name but the name that children often pick for their toys is simple and usually relates to some sort of physical characteristic or to a character that is their favorite at that particular time.

For example, my son had a blue teddy bear and when asked to name him, yes you guessed it he called him “Blue.”

Now, this teddy bear is his safety blanket, it goes everywhere with him and is tucked up in bed every night with him too. He has created this bond with this teddy and it provides him with comfort and yet his name is simple and in fact very basic.

So my advice would be if you think of the perfect name but your child is not keen just let it go. Don’t push for the name that you like as this may impact the connection that your child has with it.

3. Is there a theme?

Many teddy bears are given at a certain time of the year such as Valentine’s Day or Christmas. They tend to have a theme that coincides with that holiday such as hearts, Christmas hats, reindeer antlers, or skates for example.

The bear may be dressed as a policeman or firefighter – chat with your child about these themes and try to pick a name that is in keeping with the theme.

Do be warned that children will very often not play along with this and go in the completely opposite direction.

The Final Thought

The humble teddy bear has a long history of providing friendship and comfort to millions of children all over the world.

They come in a huge variety of colors, styles, and materials meaning that you should have no problem finding the perfect teddy for your little one.

And once the perfect teddy is found that perfect name will easily follow. Your child will then have a fantastic playmate that will allow their imagination to blossom!

Scandinavian names Male and Female | Freinheim

Posted on by Grimnir

Scandinavians are a people who responsibly choose names for their children. In ancient times, people believed that a person’s name would determine his fate.

Hello, dear reader. It’s good to see you here, and this is not just a greeting for show. I really enjoy it when my posts are read. My name is Gavrilov Kirill. I am fond of history, mythology and culture of medieval Scandinavia. And this is my northern diary — Freinheim.

  • In this entry, I have carefully collected popular male and female Scandinavian names, translated their meanings and combined them into a convenient list. And yes, these are the characters from the Vikings series in the image above.

Old Norse names, or Viking names, are closely associated with mythology and nature, wild animals and objects. Often they consist of two parts. For example, Thorbjorn is Thor (the god of thunder) + Bjorn (bear). Together we get — the bear Thor.

A little more about Scandinavian names

  1. Despite the influence of Christianity, most of the names in Scandinavia still remained unchanged. In the 16th century, bishops with pagan names were often encountered. For example, Bishop Thorstein is the stone of Thor. And this is still considered commonplace. In Norwegian and Danish tales, priests are also called by ancient names.
  2. Scandinavians use patronymics instead of surnames. Men take their father’s name. Geirson, for example, is the son of Geir. A woman’s mother’s name. Vigdisdottir is the daughter of Vigdis.
  3. In addition to Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Iceland, Scandinavian names were found in Rus’ and Finland.

Permians in social networks and instant messengers distribute a video with a bear that allegedly runs around the Kama Valley. The girl who posted the video in the Overheard Zakamsk community wrote: “Today a bear was running in the Kama Valley.” The footage shows a Kia car dealership and a man running away from a bear. There is indeed a car dealership of the same name in the Kama Valley. However, the video was filmed several years ago — and not at all in Perm.

The Ministry of Natural Resources of the Kama region was forced to officially respond to the distribution of the video: the ministry said that the information about the bear walking around the Leninsky district of Perm is not true.

— Dear residents of the Perm Territory, information is being spread on social networks about a bear allegedly running around the Kama Valley. This is a fake, the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Perm Territory reported on VKontakte. “There is no reason for concern. Permian bears in hibernation.

In fact, the video was filmed in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug in 2021: then a bear, or rather, a bear, actually walked along the streets of Nizhnevartovsk. Our colleagues from 86.RU were online about this situation. Brief information about this event is presented in the video:

It turned out that the video showed a bear named Katya. She escaped from a cage in a hotel complex where she had been kept since 2017 with her mother bear. There is a moment in the video footage when the bear runs after the man. As the owner of the bear later explained, the man turned out to be an old acquaintance of the beast: the man worked in this hotel complex, and Katya began to poke her face into him and growl. When the bear followed the man, she was hit by a bus. The driver later explained that he was trying to distract the predator from the man he was chasing. Our colleagues from 86.RU reported that the bear’s sacrum was damaged due to the accident.

In the process of capturing a bear, the issue of shooting or putting the animal to sleep was decided, and the owner even gave permission for her to be shot. But in the end, everything ended well: the bear returned to her enclosure, none of the people were hurt.

Earlier, we told how a tram driver in Perm saved a young girl from an attack by stray dogs: seeing that the animals were torturing the victim, the driver stopped the tram and rushed at the flock with a crowbar.
