The 'teddy' got its name in 1901, when the president of the United States of America, Theodore Roosevelt, refused to shoot a cub during a hunting trip. This news spread across the country, and toy bears became widely made and sold across America, called 'Teddy Bears,' after the president, and they've been our worldwide favourite stuffed toy ever since.
Choosing their teddy bear's name lets your child use their imagination, and connect more deeply with their teddy bear. By giving a toy a name and deciding if it's a girl or boy teddy, or a gender-neutral bear, you can create a unique personality for the toy, and they can become the special friend your little one loves and adores for a long time to come.
Finding the perfect name can be hard, but we've come up with some of our favourite teddy bears names to help boost your little one's creativity and bring your bear to life.
We think our list has some of the best teddy bear names out there, and we hope it sparks your imagination to create a special name for your child's special friend.
