Most of you - the Canadians at least - are aware of the story whereby Christopher Robin Milne named his stuffed animal after a brown bear at the London Zoo called Winnipeg. Said bear was named after a Canadian WWI soldier who named him after his home town. Why the Pooh, who knows? Actually, we do know, since Milne explains it in the foreword to the book. His son Christopher once had a swan whom he named Pooh. Somehow, the name was expropriated to the stuff bear. Strangely enough, the plush toy was originally called Edward Bear.

Feel free to thank me the next time this question is asked at trivia night down at the local pub. Where the names Tigger, Piglet, Kanga and Rabbit come from is anybodies guess :)

"Pooh hasn't much Brain, but he never comes to any harm. He does silly things and they turn out right."

Other trivia: In which city's library does the original Edward Bear live? Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and Tigger are also here.
