About Teddy

Go back to names list

Teddy, although sometimes a name in its own right, is most commonly a nickname variation of Theodore. Theodore comes from Greek origin and means ‘God’s Gift’. It is often abbreviated as Ted or Teddy, mostly in North America, or more commonly Theo in England. The female version of this name is Theodora. Theodore Roosevelt, who famously took the pet name Teddy, was the 26th president of the US. He was known for his masculinity and ‘cowboy’ image, and therefore well suited to his name.
