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!

Foodiefoodfood on April 02, 2020:
I suggest that you name your bear something that means something to you, or something that the bear reminds you of. I named my fox build a bear Barney because I loved Barney when I was younger.
Aswell as this, I suggest that if you get a bear that is a character like let's say pikachu then probably name it pikachu because you will remember it. Also don't make a name to long or you will forget it, like I had a bunny and named it Mary popping 111 then I just called it bunny lol, hope this made you get a good idea for how to name a bear so bye :3

I used to have a teddy bear named Ted. his hair was stringy and a light shade of brown. he also had a green bow tie that made him look even cuter! Then I showed these names to my family member when they couldn't think of a name and they love the name Baloo.
