So, found this Stieff plush teddy bear in a consignment shop in Fredericksburg, VA. I'm looking for the perfect name, and was thinking something German would be great. Ideas? My other Stieff bear came with a tag that said "Molly" but the new one doesn't seem to have ever had a name, from the research I've done.

Atunah will probably have the best suggestions, but I personally would go with "Siegfried."

So its a boy?  ;D

I'd have to think about it a bit. Mischa, Felix, Marko, Basti short for Sebastian are some that come to mind just looking at him.

That is one adorable little bear though.

Cute little guy!

How about Hugo, like my grandson. ;)

Hugo is a surname and male given name of Germanic origin Hugo, meaning "Bright in Mind and Spirit" or "intelligence".

Ooh, lots of good suggestions so far!  From everyone!

I find it interesting that one of your suggestions, Atunah, is Marko.  My Yugoslav great uncle in Hibbing was named Marko.  (Pretty sure he was Slovene, but he might have been Croatian--my grandmother was Slovene and my grandfather Croatian.)

Thinking...

Yeah, I think its also greek from Markos.

I love that we have a Hibbing mention in a thread about stuffed german bears. ;D

If there's a Hibbing connection, you have to choose Marko.

Lots of good names here, but that might be the deciding factor! Still thinking. Consulting with the new bear.

After consulting with the new bear and hubby, we've decided that Marko is the perfect name--German roots and connection to family and Hibbing!  What could be better.  And alliteration with my other Stieff bear, Molly. 

Thanks to everyone but especially Atunah!

Congratulations, Marko, and welcome to the KB family.
