Many Names of Pooh
Edward Bear - the original name of Pooh. Given
to Christopher Milne at his first birthday.
Winnie-the-Pooh - The name Christopher Robin
bestowed upon Edward Bear when he said "he would
like an exciting name all to himself"
Winnie-ther-Pooh - The name, corrected by Christopher
Robin so as to remove suspicion that Edward had been
given a girl's name. "ther" is not explained.
Winnie - A veterinarian bought a real bear cub from
the platform of the Railway Station in White River,
Ontario, Canada in the summer of 1914 while on a WWI
troop train travelling across Northern Ontario. He took
this bear named by him as Winnie ( after his home town
of Winnipeg, Manitoba ) overseas to England. When he was
posted to France, he left the bear with the London, England
Zoo where it was a favourite attraction of A.A. Milne &
Pooh - Originally the name of a swan that lived on the
lake at Decoy, a thatched cottage near Angmering in Sussex,
a vacation spot of the Milnes when Christopher was small.
Also the sound Pooh allegedly makes in the aftermath of
the bees incident, when "his arms were so stiff...that they
stayed up straight in the air for more than a week, and
whenever a fly came and settled on his nose he had to blow
it off" Also short for Winnie-the(r)-Pooh
Mr. Sanders - The name Pooh lives under. "What does
'under the name' mean?" asked Christopher Robin.
"It means he had the name over the door in gold
letters and lived under it."
Sir Pooh de Bear - The name Christopher Robin bestows
upon Pooh at the end of the stories "Most Faithful of
all my Knights"
Henry Pootel - The name actually bestowed upon Piglet
by Christopher Robin, when he and Kanga deliberately
mistake Piglet for "some relation of Pooh's"
