I love Winnie for girls! It has a strong yet feminine sound. I don’t particularly like Winifred though.

Theodore, Basil, Winston, Humphrey and Mabel would be a lovely names for siblings. I have a strang habit of grouping names into cohesive sets. Does anyone automatically think of teddy bears when first glancing at this group together? I don’t. My mind goes to a US President, an herb, a wartime British prime minister, a unique American actor and a silent film actress named Mabel Normand. I may be showing my age!

@TeacherMA- can’t believe they didn’t mention Family Guy. That’s probably the most obvious one to Americans
I like the sound of Brer

Humphery B. Bear is an Australian TV show that I used to watch when I was little.

My favorites are Bernard and Bernadette <3 love these two. And slightly medieval Berengar
but I'll always associate Bernard with teddy bears, cause that was the name of one of my little teddy's
