How To Name A Teddy Bear or Stuffed Animal (Top Tips)

  1. Keep It Simple: Remember this is your child’s toy, not yours, so you definitely want to make sure your child’s teddy has a name that’s easy to remember and pronounce!
  2. Don’t Force It: There may be some names that you or your partner really love, but if your child isn’t keen on these names then it’s best not to force the issue.
  3. Look At The Bear: Take cues from what the bear looks like when choosing its name. For example, a thin teddy bear suits a name like “Flat Teddy”, whereas a name like “Chubby Bear” would work well for a bear that’s on the larger side.
  4. Make A Shortlist: Struggling to narrow down to just one name? Try writing the most promising names on a list and say the names out loud with your little one.
  5. Test Out The Name(s): Even once you’ve chosen a name it can take a few days for it to be accepted by both you and your child. So if you still can’t decide on a few names, try calling the bear by two or three names at the start and see which one sticks.
