Top 10 Tips for Naming Your Favorite Stuffed Animals 

1. Base Its Name According To The Animal Type

Base Its Name According To The Animal Type

The first thing we like doing when picking the perfect name for our plushies is to look at their specific type. For example, toy bears would be super cuddly, so we would think of naming it Cuddles or Softy, apart from its famous name Teddy (after Theodore Roosevelt) for a boy teddy bear. A stuffed giraffe would have majestic legs, so the stuffed animal’s name could be Mr. Long Legs! 

2. Try Playing On Words

We love made-up names that rhyme, and we think they’re perfect for many stuffed toys! Funny teddy bear names include Fuzzy Wuzzy, for a handsome teddy that’s super fuzzy and soft. 

How about a stuffed Great Dane that, well, doesn’t look that great? Plain Dane sounds like just the right name! 

Get creative and see how the words roll out of your tongue! 

3. Base On Its Appearance

Base On Its Appearance

A clever naming process for a stuffed animal toy is to look at its appearance. Check out for any special features that specifically stand out. Here are a few name ideas to look for in your plushies: 

  • Color and pattern of its fur 
  • Its size and shape 
  • Special additions, like long necks, horns, antlers, tusks, fins, and webbed feet 

If your daughter has a handsome silver seal, name it Silver! That stuffed fish with fins, name it Finster! No one’s stopping you from being silly with your plushies. 

4. Base It On The Animal’s Theme

Some people like collecting soft toys from a specific theme (for example, only jungle-based stuffed animals or creatures from the sea). You can opt to make a conscious decision to name the stuffed animals according to their theme or pick popular character names from a movie/TV show that synchronizes. 

For example, if you own a large sea-creature collection, you can take inspiration from the movie Finding Nemo. The orange stuffed fish could be Nemo; a blue stuffed fish could be Dory; Pearl could be the purple octopus… 

5. Name It After Popular Characters

Name It After Popular Characters

You can also get inspiration from popular characters in naming your fluff buddy. This is a great tip for when you struggle to pick out a name! 

If your stuffed animal is a honey-colored teddy bear, name it Winnie the Pooh! A few names for dogs are Clifford, Pluto, and Goofy! 

If you’re a big fan of movie and book characters, Narla, Teddy, Yogi, and Gummy are great teddy bear names!

6. Name It After A Family Member/Friends

This next tip always makes us giggle — it’s a surefire way to bring laughs to everyone! 

Suppose you have a teddy bear or other stuffed animal that reminds you of one of your family members or friends, like a stuffed monkey that looks like your little brother Jared or a teddy bear in a pink dress that reminds you of your best friend, Cassie. In that case, there is nothing wrong with naming your new furry friend after them! 

7. Get Inspiration From Cultural Heritage

Get Inspiration From Cultural Heritage

Go back to your roots and get inspiration from your cultural heritage in naming your teddy bears and other stuffed animals. Does your mom have Asian heritage? Ask her to tell you stories about what life was like when your grandmother was still living in Taiwan or her favorite figure in ancient Chinese history.

Take note of cool words and all the favorite names you could use to name your important childhood toy! But what are the most popular stuffed animal brands?

8. Use A Unique & Different Language 

This also ties in with number seven. If you love Greek mythology, search for unique Greek names that you can give to your teddy bear and other stuffed toys. Check out their meanings and determine whether or not your favorite names suit your stuffed friend. 

An example will be if you own a stuffed gray horse that looks like it could run fast. You could choose to name it Hermes, after the fastest Greek god! 

9. Use Alliterations

Use Alliterations

You can also use alliterations for stuffed animal names! Alliterations are groups of words that sound like one another. 

How about Snowy Chloe for a new teddy bear that’s white? Or Thunder Thumper for a beautiful stuffed black horse that looks like each thump of his hoof will clap like thunder. 

10. Choosing Off-Beat Stuffed Animal Names

Of course, we know how a few creatives can’t be conformed to common trains of thought. You can choose off-beat, funny names to give to your plush toys! 

So go ahead — name that vibrant stuffed cheetah Slowpoke… just because you feel like it! 

FAQs

Can you name your child’s favorite stuffed animal?

Yes, you can name your child’s favorite stuffed animal! Make sure to give them an easy name, something that your child will be able to say easily. If you don’t want to have sole autonomy over the teddy bear [1] names, you can list down a few ideas and let your child choose ultimately.
