I thought it would be fun to share the names our LO's give their baby dolls/stuffed animals/etc. I'm continually amazed at the names my girls come up with....

nonda
ausrey
cinda
bug
cutie
cutie's brother (they can't seem to give him a name)
robin hood

there are many others but their names change on a regular basis....

oh yeah, my 2.5 yr old just said her guardian angel's name is olivia.

My daughter has only named a coupld bears, one is Sarah (which is HER name, lol) and one is Katherine (which is her Aunt's name.) She's not very creative in the naming department (yet.)

Mama of three.

For her third bday, dd1 received a baby doll that she promptly named "Chuhlily." (Chuh, like chuck + lily, like the flower) That name stuck for years!

All totally DD-generated:

Risa (the orignal and favorite)
Meetid (I have no idea -- the doll had this name before we left the store)
Chabby (she stole this from a friend)
Ashra (10 in arabic...I was teaching her to count in Arabic)
Mippy
Ella
Candy
Lily

And the lovely Waldorf-style organic doll that she recieved first that I'd hope she'd love? That one usually plays "the Daddy." I think it's name is "new baby" usually. Poor neglected doll!

Well, we have several teddy bears named "Teddy" - they often have new names bestowed on them to fit the situation but they always seem to revert to Teddy. Or Bear.

We have dolls named Ruby, Daisy, Nancy, Willow and Muppet Mary. Mostly they're named after characters from books or friends, but I'm not sure where Muppet Mary came from. I asked DD2 how she thought of it, and she said she didn't know.

My son had 2 beloved dolls -- a soft stuffed one and a naked "bath" doll. He got them when he was too little to talk, but they cycled through 3 sets of names:

Jesus, and Naked Jesus -- yes, those where their names. Jesus got named at Christmas when he was almost 2 and there was a lot of talk about Baby Jesus. It made sense to me. THe problem was that when Jesus "misbehaved" (which he seemed to a lot -- DS was not the most patient parent) he'd yell at the doll "NO, JESUS!" and everyone in the vicinity would look at me like I was the worst parent in the world. I tried explaining (to strangers since he liked to bring Jesus to the mall and other locations) that he wasn't swearing, he was just using the baby's name, but no one believed me. Naked Jesus wasn't a problem because he lived in the bathtub, so only people who knew my family and knew I don't swear at my kids "met" him.

At about 2 1/2 he renamed them "Window" (the one with clothes) and "Watershelf" (the naked one). I have no idea where these names come from, but they were an improvement from Jesus in my mind, although not a big one.

Then at 3 he renamed them again Ketu (from Verna Aardema's What's So Funny Ketu, a great book BTW) and Obedi (from Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen's Mama Elizabeti another fantastic book). I really liked those names and he stuck with them until he kind of outgrew the dolls.

DDs dolls have normal names....Audrey, Lola, Wendy, Nicky, and the only odd one is Peyton (which isn't really so odd)


What makes me laugh are the names she makes up for me to be called when we play make believe restaurant or what have you. I have no idea where she came up with these, but they are......Plarmy, Plormy, Corsi, and Porsi . She's grown out of this, but it still cracks me up to think of it. I could hardly keep a straight face when we played, but of course I didn't want to hurt her feelings of belittle her sense of imagination, so I chuckled inside and just played along.

oh yeah! when my son was around 3 and had just started talking, his names for every person he drew were Hee-bee-gee, Ho-boy, and So-goy. He also had this big orange ball, and he had an imaginary friend named Kanka who lived inside the ball. O-o weird but CUTE!!

Will names for chickens count? My kids don't really name their toys so much but we have some bantam chickens that dd just loves on all the time. They are her pets. Dd has come up with some interesting ones but she has a reason for choosing each name.


Crown
Rocky Mountain High Alaska (a combo of John Denver lyrics I believe )
Brooke
Cutie
Like
Lynn
Holly Berry
Chocolate

And she let ds name one, which he promptly christened T-Rex Roar because everything at that time was T-Rex Roar. If she asked him today he'd probably say Argentinasaurus.

My dd is into Kayla right now for MOST dolls. And then she changes it. "I decided I like her name to be...... Mayla." Ok, kid,whatever you say. (I have a 3 yr old cousin named Kayla that dd has never met, so I find this amusing that she likes and even knows the name.)

Her favorite teddy bear is named Cuddly (named last Dec 2 mos after she turned 5) and it fits. He is a snuggly bear. :

The first and only babydoll that my daughter named and became attached to was when she was about 15 months old. She picked it up and said "Happy" at the store with her grandma, who bought it for her. After that she always called her Happy, and for over two years, we could not go anywhere without her. Happy was dropped into so many puddles getting out of the car, was once dropped on the subway tracks, but we always had to recover her. We still have her now, but she lives in dd's toybox. Despite many washes, she is filthy!

Cute thread!

My older ds had a baby doll that he named Connor (a baby he met), then Kia Tanisha (book character), Sara (cousin), Harry Potter, and back to Connor. He had another doll named Glockley.

Younger ds named his dolls Lexi (my sister's dog) and Toby Diego (who knows!).

My 4 yo dd names her animals and dolls daily. She uses made up words and never remembers them later. Like, "His name is Blushaytopeeloom and this ones is Ooomkapu."

My dd has a baby doll that was baby for years (she got her when she was 2ish). Then when she was 4 she named the baby Rose because her outfit had roses on it.

She has imaginary friends named Molly, Alex, and Love.

My son doesn't play with his dolls enough to bother naming them - he's far too busy. He does have a 2 feet tall dinosaur that he named Carlos though.

DD#1s first baby dolls were named Charlotte and Charles. I believe it was after a doll from a book I was reading to her at the time (Little House on the Prarie I think). Later, she got a doll she named Lucy after the doll in Little Bear, because I was reading that to her at the time.

Unfortunately, Baby Charlotte got into an unfortunate accident, and couldn't be fixed. So, DD decided to rename Baby Charles Baby Charlotte. However, she couldn't replace her original Baby Charlotte, so the new Baby Charlotte's name was pronounced differently, with the CH sound like in Charles.

DD#2 named her stuffed lion Rory when she was 3 years old. She also had Hop and Luna, her Native American cloth dolls (mama wearing her baby on her back). She also had Baby Dirt Dirt, a doll she found in the yard that she liked to play with. Her favorite was Baby Chicken, that she got when I was pregnant with DS. Baby Chicken was just a regular baby doll. DD#2 was less than 2 years old at the time, and apparantly what she was TRYING to say when we asked her the baby's name was "Baby's Kickin'". Heh, I guess she heard that a lot.

DS has Cookie Monkey (he mispronounced Monkey as Cookie all the time), Cookie Monkey Jr., a bunch of different variants of his Cookie Monkeys, and Baby Craig Dylan.

My son used to have a stuffed hedgehog he called "Hedgie" and a teddybear he still sleeps with (shhhhhhh........) named "Steenie Bear" because my brother, Steven, gave it to him, back when he wasn't old enough to pronounce "Steven"- it always came out "Steenie".

My little girl has had a baby doll named "Baby" and a stuffed frog named... you guessed it, "Froggy". Every other doll was "Sarah" and then "Ashley" and now they are either "Hannah" or "Miley", but I think she's starting to outgrow baby dolls. She still plays with the one she named "Krissy" (after me ), though.

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

Our almost 6 year old has a teddy bear he got on his first birthday that is "My Teddy" and a small stuffed puppy named "Puppy".

Our 4 year old has an almost identical teddy bear to her brother's (hers is pink and his is brown) and it's also called, "My Teddy".

Other than that their dollie names are descriptive -ie we have a bear with a heart on it and that is "Heart Bear".

Any dalmation dog DD calls 'dog puppy'. She believes that Dog Puppy is the name of the breed.

There is a friendly stray that comes around that DS named Mr No Name.

We are super-creative name givers over here.

Oh, and the baby - all of her babies (which means anyone she is holding) is Mine.

He's 12? That is the most sweetest thing I have heard today! Our almost 6 year old has a teddy bear that he likes to snuggle with. He is so cute when he's curled up with My Teddy at night.
