The importance of teddy bear names

If there’s one thing we’re sure of, it’s that we all love our teddy bears. There’s nothing quite like the sense of joy and comfort that our furry companions bring to us. But what exactly is it that makes them so special? Is it their cuddly bellies? The adorable eyes? Those loveable button noses? Or could it be the cute and comforting teddy bear names we give them? 

Just like their owners, every bear is a truly unique soul. So it’s only right that your bear name reflects who they are and just how special they are to you. We love to name bears carefully and put a lot of thought into them - but if you haven’t got the time to sit and think, we’re here to help with a list of teddy bear names for your cuddly best friend. 

How do you name your teddy bear? 

First, you’ve got to examine your bear. Do they seem like a traditional or modern fellow? Maybe there’s a distinctive feature that can inspire some cute bear names, like a bow design or paw colour? Try to notice their best features. 

Here at Big Ted, we know a thing or two about names for teddy bears, and so to help get the ball rolling when it comes to choosing the perfect teddy name for yours, we’ve put together a list of cute bear names to give you some inspiration.
