There are 643 Bear names for baby girls. Bears are magnificent mammals known for being brave in the face of danger and fiercely protective of their young. These attributes carry over into female names that mean bear, for instance with the Germanic name Bernadette, which means as brave as a bear. As a verb, the word bear connotes the idea of supporting or enduring. Names with this meaning include Veronica, which means the bearer of victory.

Bear names are classic favorites. Today they are still very popular as baby girl names, but not as much as they were in the past. Their usage peaked in 1917 with 38.323% of baby girls being given Bear names. Within the top 1000 baby names then, there were 140 Bear names. The names have slipped in popularity since then, but they are nevertheless of very heavy use in recent times. In 2015, their total usage was 15.032% with 115 Bear names listed among the top 1000. Among all Bear names, Emma (English, Armenian, Catalan, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Scandinavian, and Spanish) was the most widely used, with a ranking of #1 and a usage of 1.0519%.
