cutie's brother (they can't seem to give him a name)
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.
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)
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!

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.
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.
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.
Freethinking Earth-mama of five.
Rocky Mountain High Alaska (a combo of John Denver lyrics I believe )
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.
Sara: Playing ref to my Sweet Pea 10 Tootle Pants 7 & Trouble Monkey 18 mo
Her favorite teddy bear is named Cuddly (named last Dec 2 mos after she turned 5) and it fits. He is a snuggly bear. :

46-year-old single (divorced), self-employed working, home schooling, mommy to:

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!).
Autistic pagan mama with five kiddos on the spectrum, learning through living life.
She has imaginary friends named Molly, Alex, and Love.
DS got a stuffed penguin last Christmas that he named "Topper Wood" I have no idea where he came up with it!
Catherine traditional Catholic mama to wife to an amazing man.
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 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.
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.
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".
