We all love our stuffed friend, read Teddy Bear, so much that we consider it to be an integral part of our family. Hence, naming our cuddly friends becomes a must.
How Teddy got its name?
Well, a teddy bear, as we now so affectionately know it, got its name from former President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt who was nicknamed ‘Teddy’.
It is cute and cuddly, and lies quietly in a corner. It doesn’t mind being pulled by its ears or swung around with its limbs. It just looks at you with eyes filled with love and concern that always goes unmatched. You can blame it for all the mischief you do when you are a kid yet, you can rest assured that, you have a friend forever. Undoubtedly, it has been your shoulder when you were moved to tears and your companion on those lonely nights when you wished you could fade away into the dark. No matter how old you grow, your companion never seems to leave your side and is most often than not by your side even as you read this. My, oh my what would we have done without our faithful friend, Mr. Bear?
Stuffed with soft white cotton and layered with equally soft and smooth fur, the teddy bear is much more than just a soft toy. Besides, you would agree when I say, what’s not to love in a teddy bear, right?
It is true that a name gives us our true identity, and it is solely the reason why our furry friends need a name too. Naming our cuddly friend not only gives it an identity but also confirms that it is an external extension of ourselves. Well to say the least, naming a teddy bear makes it a part of the family and most importantly makes it yours forever.
Naming a Teddy Bear
Most people prefer naming their teddy bear according to their physical features, which means a brown bear is most likely to be called Brownie, while an extremely plump teddy bear can be named Chubby. Then, there are some who like to name them with regards to their place of birth like Benny which is Bennington in short. You can name your teddy after someone close to you or your favorite character after all, if teddy likes it you would too, isn’t it?

To end, I would like to quote Helen Exley who says, “A bear teaches us that if the heart is true, it doesn’t matter much if an ear drops off.”
