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