Ursa Major (Latin: "Larger Bear"), also known as the Great Bear, is a constellation visible throughout the year in most of the northern hemisphere. It is dominated by the widely recognized pattern of stars known as the Big Dipper, which is a useful pointer toward north, and which has mythological significance in numerous world cultures.

Ursa Minor (Latin: "Smaller Bear", contrasting with Ursa Major), also known as the Little Bear, is a constellation in the northern sky. Like the Great Bear, the tail of the Little Bear may also be seen as the handle of a ladle, whence the name Little Dipper. It was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy, and remains one of the 88 modern constellations.

I think this is a very beautiful name with a cool connection to the constellations! I personally pronounce it as "ER-sah".

I think it would be a good name for a teddy bear.
