Personal experiences with the name Teddy: | Edit

My step-niece's name. She is extremely hyper but has always been beautiful.

My twin sister's name is Theoline, a cross betwen my dad's mom, Theodora and my mom's mom, Caroline. She's knock-out beautiful and always called Teddy. Teddy's a really cute name, indicating a tomboy kind of character, but if you know a Teddy, you'll of her when you hear the name, so tomboy isn't really a constant perception.
