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!

        I actually have 1 thing to say but it is actually not about the names. But the bear used for the picture. I have the same purple bear. Which I am actually surprised to see that someone else has the same bear.

        This site has some pretty generic names on it and it was rather disappointing to me. The only good name this site provided was "Beary Potter". As a teddy bear enthusiast, I thought this site would have provided more than just 60 names. This obviously just goes to show that the creator of this site is not very creative at all. It breaks my heart to see someone not providing more fun and positive teddy bear names. After viewing this website I think I am going to take it upon myself to create my own teddy bear website where I will post endless amounts of fun and creative names to give fellow teddy bear enthusiasts like myself. I love you all and can't wait to satisfy all of your teddy bear needs. Beary Potter appreciates your support more than you will ever know.
