Name my little bear

I've just finished making this cute little bear  for an upcoming school fete. Isn't he adorable?
I bought the kit which included the pattern and all the materials from Spotlight. I hadn't crocheted for a while so I hoped that he would be easy to make, and to my relief he was.
There are more creatures in the series which are shown on the back of the kit. So the plan is to make a few and sell them at the craft stall. I have put my hand up to run the stall again this year, so I need to get busy making stuff. This little guy is just the start.
The kids and I have been trying to name him. Our favourite so far is Rupert or perhaps Edward. Trouble is, can I part with him once he has a name.
What do you think? What would be a good name for him and could you part with him?

I keep alot of my firsts, have trouble parting with them. I'd call him Uno for No. 1.

I would have a hard time parting with this cutey!! I would call him Fuzzy Wuzzy. Remember the rhyme? Fuzzy Wuzzy was a Bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he?
hahaha, it was the first name that popped in my head :)

When we were small my brother had a bear named Raymond. Now we are in our 60's and I still name every teddy bear that crosses my path "Raymond" because it brings back happy memories of childhood!

Personally, I think he has a lil European flair to him.
I think his name is Robear. Yeah, Robert' but French.

Robear.

Hej Lenna, are you sure that it is a boy, having a pink neckband. Now that you have made her on my daughters 18 years birthday I would surgest the same name as her: Sofie Amalie.

Hi Bramble.......you are an awfully cure bear and as most of my "firsts" go to my grandchildren that makes it much easier to let go. However, you I would keep as company for Gran on her sewing table.

I couldn't part with him, if he were mine. I'd call him Muggsy because of his lighter nose area.

The first thing I thought of was Rosevelt. No idea why (maybe after the president). And if he were mine I would have to make him a twin. One for me and one for school.

I would call him Corneilus. I don't know why but the moment I saw him that is the name that came to me. And I wouldn't part with him he is too precious.

Have a nice day

What about Bertram Bear?

What about swinger - you know he will swing from tree to tree out in the jungle. :-)

Ah He is too cute. How about Sebastian bear. It looks as if he should have a family and each bear could have a name from your blog. Perhaps next year you could ask members if they are interested in making bears to your fundraising store.
You are wonderful and inspirational. Thank you for your great site and for all the free patterns.
With love and light

I would call wee bear, Brendan, and no I could not give him away, but would be able to make little relatives to give to 'bery' special friends.

He would have to be my Hunny. And I'd have to make lots of brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles for him to go out into his kingdom and spread his cheer.

He is a very handsome brown bear. He reminds me of Bobbie bear that my son had so I would name him Bobbie. Good luck with the craft stall.
