What should you name your teddy bear?

Teddy bears are such a wonderful source of comfort. Since mom and dad can’t be there for every scary moment or nightmare, teddy bears can be real lifesavers for all!

Maybe it’s the soft fur, the squishy belly, those adorable bear eyes, or that cute, button nose: Whatever it is, there is something very magical about teddy bears that only children can understand. In kids' minds, a teddy bear comes to life like Winnie the Pooh!

Because the teddy bear is so important, it deserves a perfect name. Read on for ideas and inspiration!

Naming Your Teddy Bear

When you go to places such as Build-a-Bear Workshop, when you are all done creating the bear, you then have to choose an official name to put on the teddy bear’s “birth certificate.”

Even if you don’t go to Build-a-Bear, choosing teddy bear names is still pretty important, to the child at least. Printing out an official birth certificate on the computer is a really cute idea, too.

When it comes to brainstorming teddy bear names, kids don’t usually take a long time; it’s like the bear tells them their name! But in case your child needs a little help, here’s a few little tips to help them along:

  • Always let the child choose the teddy bear name.

  • Offer suggestions (such as character names from their favorite show) if your child is having a hard time.
  • Describe the bear to your child to help spark ideas.
  • Have your child write down or verbally express each thing they love about their new teddy bear.

  • Watch Care Bears or read a Care Bears book, then encourage your child to come up with similar names.

If your child would like some ideas for teddy bear names, feel free to choose some from this list to share:

Fun Ways to Pick a Name

There are so many good teddy bear names out there, so it really shouldn’t be surprising if your child doesn’t want to settle on just one.

It’s okay and normal to be indecisive, but it is also important to use this as an opportunity to teach your child how to make a decision when the choices are tough. After all, not every choice made in life will be easy, and sometimes you just have to find a way to make the decision!

Here are a few child-friendly ways to make a decision:

  • Draw from a hat: Have your child pick the names they like best and write them down on pieces of paper, then stick them all into a hat. Let them pick the name out of the hat.

  • Matching game: Cut out squares of paper and write the names that your child likes on separate pieces, but make two cards for each name. Then lay them out with the writing down and have the child turn one over at a time. The first match your child makes will become the name! Build anticipation when s/he flips the first card, example “Teddy,” and say “Will the name be Teddy...?”

  • Flip a coin: If there are just two names, this one can work very well! Heads is name A, and tails is name B.

Now that you have a few ideas for names and how to help your child come up with some, what name will your child decide on? You just never know what will come from the mouths of babes!

Gifting a Teddy Bear

Children can grow very attached to a bear that they received from a special person, whether that person is gone or is still in their lives. Giving a teddy bear gives them something to remember you by, and that in itself is something special.

Another way to give the comfort of a teddy bear is to let a child choose it on their own. You could go to any toy store with a wide variety, such as Toys R Us, or have fun making one at a place like Build-a-Bear Workshop. The latter will not only allow the child to completely customize their teddy bear but will also link it to memories of the time you spent together making it!

      Hello there! I have a very important question to ask you, creater of this pin.

      If that is your purple bear, I'd truly appreciate the name of the maker or whatever to figure out how to get one.

      I have a Dark Forest Green Bear, exactly like that one, I found a purple one exactly like the one in the photos one day by some miracle! I gave it to my 3 year old niece, but after thinking about it, reliezed ever since I was a child I've been searching for the other colors of my Bear. (I named him Green Bear, and the Purple Bear, Violet. )

      When I asked my brother if he knew where she was, he had said they gave a lot away to Goodwill. I searched,and searched but to no success. So, I've been on the hunt for months. God finally helped me find those photos! But I'm at a dead end again. D;

      I'd appreciate any information you could give me!

      Thank you so SO very much!

      -Raychel ♡

      I'm sorry, but I didn't take these pictures and don't own the bear. I searched on Amazon and couldn't find it. I'm sorry, but with you luck with your search.

      My daughter is IN LOVE with her new bear, but she had trouble figuring out what gender it was. Lol. So she decided to give it a name that was for both boys and girls, so she became very creative, and named her bear,Bear Bear, She says the bear is her best friend and that he has magic talking powers she can only hear! Lol.
