The meaning of this name "gift of God" seems so fitting. I had dog named Teddy, and that dog was one the best friends I ever had.

"Teddy" reminds me of "teddy bear", but also reminds me of "teddy boy".

A famous rock singer, Teddy Geiger, who sings "For You I Will (Confidence)", "Underage Thinking", and a version of "You'll Be In My Heart" on the Disney Mania 4 soundtrack. Teddy is his name, NOT a pet form of any other name.

A nickname for a little boy, and an old-fashioned one at that. Then there's the Teddy bear association.

I love teddy bears, but Teddy is too cutesy as a given name. It's better off as a nickname. Now I'm even seeing people spell it Teddie and give it to girls, like with Lily Allen's half-sister. It sounds cutesier and rather infantile on a girl.

In "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott, Jo March calls Theodore Laurence "Teddy" although everyone else calls him "Laurie".

Teddy is absolutely the CUTEST nickname anybody could ever have! I love this name, but a) only on boys, and b) as a nickname (particularly for the name Theodore). This nickname is so cute, it even made the very evil character Theodore (Teddy) "T-Bag" Bagwell on the show Prison Break a little more likeable!

This is an adorable nickname for a boy or man of any age.

-- Myth Writer Dreamer  9/16/2010
To the whole "Good Luck, Charlie" thing, I'm thinking her name is Theodora. Teddy is a cute nickname for a girl, too.

Teddy Ruxpin was a children's talking bear toy.
-- Anonymous User  5/27/2015
It's a cute nickname for a young child, but it should be kept at that: a nickname. It would sound stupid for a teenager or adult.
-- IsolationHedge  7/21/2015

My cousin is pregnant, and though she's planning on naming her son Theodore fully, she's already calling him Teddy and is planning on making that his nickname. I think it is so precious! I love it!
-- sydneyvail  10/10/2016
So cute! I would consider it for both a future son or a future daughter. It works on a little kid but it also can work on an adult as well. I love it!
