Before Levi was born, a friend made me laugh with the exotic names she bestowed upon the plush toys hanging from her infant son’s car seat. They were so creative, and I couldn’t wait for my own kiddo to have stuffed animals to name. How fun!
JB and I have tried our best to come up with clever monikers for Levi’s toys, but I’ll be the first to admit that we sort of suck at naming stuffed animals and toys. Here’s what we have so far:
Sophie. Officially, she’s Sophie the Giraffe. No point in renaming her, as she is most definitely a Sophie.
Jingle Bird. With a bell in her belly, this bird jingles when she’s rattled. Original, huh?
Robertito and La La. We call him “Tito” for short. Obviously, they have the best names, and it’s because their naming happened organically, as it should be. Boy monkey’s moniker comes from the pet name our Puerto Rican waiter gave to my dad when we celebrated his birthday in Miami. Girl monkey gets her name from Blabla, the company that makes the knitted animal rattles.
Do your kids have stuffed animals with funny names? Did you have any cleverly named ones growing up? Inspire me with your creativity!
