Teddy means?
Two conflicting stories about the origin of teddy bear came out in the early years. But the well known story was that the toy “Teddy bear” came after Theodore Roosevelt’s name. It was November 1902 when Theodore Roosevelt went bear hunting. Unfortunately, He didn't catch a bear. So one of his presidential aides recommended him to capture bear cubs but Roosevelt refused. He thought it's not against the laws of nature and should let the cubs loose and wander freely. It became a political cartoon in Washington post. Then, people started to call Roosevelt, Teddy.
