  1. Bear is his dad’s middle name.

  2. My husband has had this name picked out for his first born son almost his whole life! He likes how manly it sounds and I warmed up to it. 🙂
    It fits our son well who is both cuddly and sweet and in the 90th percentile for his size.

  3. His full first name is Barron, which is great because it’s unique and I love the sound of it. We actually thought of it because we were wondering what full name could we use so that we could call him Bear. His brother’s name is Wolf. If he ever wanted to go by a more common name, his middle name is Robert. But I have always absolutely loved animals and nature. I sound like a hippie mama, but really I just love animals and it shows. 😛 instead of nickname Barry, I call him Bear-Bear sometimes. Also I chose names that seemed strong and courageous.
