Choosing a name for a teddy bear is a big responsibility. It is the name that the stuffie will carry forever. But there are a few easy ways to be sure you’ve picked a good name.

Actually sometimes all you need is to look at the teddy bear and the perfect name simply pops up in your head. You will know that because you will like this name the most no matter how many other options you try.
Still no good ideas? Keep looking at the teddy bear. If it is a themed teddy, maybe the name can be derived from it. For example a police teddy bear can be called Poli. Or Fuzz.
