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.

Spoiler warning for those who haven't read the final Harry Potter book: Teddy Remus Lupin is the son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks in the Harry Potter series.

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.

The older sister on the famous TV show, “Good Luck Charlie” on Disney Channel is named Teddy.

To the whole "Good Luck, Charlie" thing, I'm thinking her name is Theodora. Teddy is a cute nickname for a girl, too.

Turn around

Touch the ground
Teddy bear, Teddy bear
Show your shoe
Teddy bear, Teddy bear
That will do.

Teddy Ruxpin was a children's talking bear toy.

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
The name Teddy was given to 91 boys born in the US in 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!

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!
