Tips for Naming Stuffed Animals

  1. The first thing to consider is keeping the name simple to help your child remember it. I’ve had many instances where my kids would come to me later asking, “what was my bear’s name again?It happens.
  2. Keep your opinions mostly to yourself. Your child should be free to name their stuffed animal whatever makes them happy and feel connected to their new friend…no matter how strange it may seem. Only speak up if there’s a valid concern.
  3. Choose to highlight a unique characteristic about their new friend such as their color, animal type, outfit, or something else unique. For example, my son had a stuffed dinosaur that he named “Camo” because his fabric was green camouflage.
  4. Think of favorite cartoon characters they might want to use to name their stuffie.
  5. Know that picking a name can be hard for many children who don’t want to get it “wrong.” Make them feel comfortable by telling them stories of how you chose their name.
  6. Make a game out of the top name-contenders like picking from a random drawing of the names, doing a coin toss, or creating a scavenger hunt to the winning name.
