Insert 'teddy bear' if you like, but our kids have (in order) a purple cat thing, a bear and a dog.
Their names are
'Fang' - not sure where this name comes from
'Perry' - after my grandmother but also after the doctor from Scrubs
'Olivia' - also loosely named after my grandmother (she bought all three toys)

Anyone else have (or have kids that have) toys with names other than 'teddy'?

I used to have a plush snake I called James. I have no idea why I decided to name it that way. The snake went everywhere with me though :P

My 6-yo has a blue teddy bear named "Booboo" which is short for "Blue Bear". She is the mayor of Bluesville, a nearby city of stuffed animals that has its own language and customs which, to no one's surprise, appear to change according to the situation in the real world (for example, bed time in Bluesville is never when someone's favourite show is on).
My 4-yo has a cat named "Mika", which is short for "My Kitty". Mika does not have the pedigree that Booboo has, of course, since he's had less time to work on it, however, Mika mysteriously developed the ability to spit poison in a wrestling match last week and that ability has stuck around, so we may be on the verge of learning more about her.

I won a couple stuffed animals at the county fair. They were two lions dressed up as kings, in little crowns and robes. We named them Rex and Roy.
