Winnie for Winipeg, Canada, and Pooh for the swan (see comment below from e brown). Yes, I looked it up, but now I have learned something important today!

Evidently, Winnie comes from a bear Milne saw in the London Zoo from Winnipeg, Ontario named Winnie. Pooh has various origins. One is from a swan that Christopher named Pooh, and Milne said it was a good name since swans don’t always come when called, so he could just pretend he was saying, “Pooh,” because he didn’t really want him. The other reason might be because Winnie the Pooh’s arms were stiff and he couldn’t brush a fly off his nose, so he had to blow it off saying, “Pooh!” Somehow the two silly names got put together and stuck.

9/10…OMG,I missed Winnie the Pooh. My grandchildren will never forgive me. Most of them were raised on ‘Pooh Bear’.Well, I’m happy with the rest of my score. You guys have a happy and safe weekend and a blessed day today.

My daughter had one at the age of 3 months. Took it to college with her! Has had many ‘surgeries’. Passed it down to her daughter. She loves it, although it has no fur, arms are loopy, mouth missing,……

10/10 First time for me, but no bonus points. No idea where Pooh bear’s name came from.

The bear was named after a bear at the London Zoo brought by Canadian Lt. Harry Colebourne and named for the city of Winnipeg.

I guess that’s not bad considering Canada banned me from entering the country because I chose not to vaccinate.  I live in Alaska and prefer it… similar environment and much more freedom.

I heard a comment by a radio host that said the Winnie the Pooh franchise is richest of its type. Even more than Disney.
That’s kind of hard to believe.

8 of 10. I had a guess which I was going to enter before I could see any of the comments, but unfortunately I saw Sallo’s reply, below, before I could start typing mine. Their answer sounds more likely than mine, which was Winston Churchill whom I’ve heard referred to as Winnie.

Canada is still a British crown, if I were Great Britain, I’d tell their colony to get their act together or be taken over by the mother country, kind of like Grenada. Nice country, went skiing in Montreal.
