Top 500 Bear Names: Best, Fictional, Funny, Male & Female

Bear Names

Bears are often overlooked as animals, viewed as savage and scary, and unable to interact with humans.

However, the reality is there are many different species, some of which live with people!

We are here to help you find the best Bear Names for a cub you have sponsored, a teddy-bear or even a dog that looks like a cuddly teddy and has all the amazing qualities of a grizzly!

Some of our ideas are fierce to reflect their personalities, but others titles are soft and gentle, making them perfect for loveable teddies.

We hope the perfect choice for your brilliant pet is somewhere in the list below…

Best Bear Names

Best Bear Names

Many of our favorite bear names take inspiration from famous characters from comics, TV shows and films, especially cartoons like: ‘Yogi’ and ‘Paddington Bear’.

Naming your cub after one of these renowned grizzlies will generate a lot of recognition when you tell other people!

Some of the ideas used for fictional grizzlies are funny and clever in order to make the audience laugh and to make the monikers memorable.

Many of these choices are adorable and would suit the cuddliest teddies on earth!

We love a bit of alliteration, therefore many of the best bear names, in our opinion, begin with ‘B’, making them very catchy.

Funny Bear Names

Funny Bear

If your pet has a hilarious and fun-loving personality, a funny name is exactly what they need to show them off.

When looking for funny bear names, the possibilities are simply endless, so spend as much time as possible researching to find the best one.

You could try giving your teddy a cringey and mushy title, as these are often very funny and ironic (e.g. ‘Bear’ to give it some humorous relevancy)?

The best way to find a funny grizzly title is to come up with a pun, like a play on the word teddy.

Whatever you choose, we hope it makes you chuckle…

Female Bear Names

Female Bear with Cubs

Our favorite types of female titles for grizzlies are traditional and classic choices.

We believe that classic names span from cute and beautiful titles over generations of pet owners.

On the other hand, you could try a really unique and modern moniker (that’s if your bear is more up to date and down with the kids)!

You could even put a modern twist on a classic choice (e.g. ‘Agnez’), these kinds of names are great for really cool females!

Some traditional names are also coming back into fashion and are viewed as modern, so take a look down the list, and see if there are any classics which jump out at you.
