i still do. when my best friend found out that i still named my stuffed animals, she found it pretty funny lol. i don't know, but it just comes automatically. sometimes i name them as a group and not individually, but i always name them. my favorite stuffed animal is a gray bear named ruud after the dutch footballer ruud van nistelrooy. i'm not big on football actually, but at that time, by close friend was football crazy and she was a big fan of manchester utd. (ruud van nistelrooy was still in ManU then, he's in real madrid now), so i named the bear ruud in her honor lol because she was there when i bought the bear and i couldn't think of a good name at that time. i still think it's really cute heheheh! what about you guys? do you still name your stuffed animals?

I do, but I stopped after I had acquired too many. I collect teddy bears, and I must have at least 100. My favorites have names. I have three build a bear teddies. I have emma, justin, sheila, katrina, named after the hurrican, my husband brought her back to me when he we to Vegas. I had a Rachel, she was a bride bear, and her husband was Fred. I feel so bad, I had a really bad fight with my husband and threw Rachel away. I really miss her, bad move on my part. I still have Fred, when we went on our honeymoon, we got a pet for them, a stuffed black dog, named blackie. I know it is weird, but it is a hobby for me

Yes, I named my toys back then. Just human/animal toys, of course. Now, whenever I get stuffed toys, I don't name them anymore. They usually have their names written on their tag when they were bought. I would like to call them that.
