Other Origin(s):Hindi
One of the most beloved characters in Disney movie history, the name Baloo makes an adorable and undeniable impact. Though this name is a variant spelling from The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, its origins ultimately run deep in Hindu culture. Its meaning of “bear” comes from the Hindi word भालू , or bhālū. With the known strength and symbol of perseverence that the bear stands for, it's an obvious choice for parents wanting to impart strength. But going one step further and teaching baby all about when to take it easy and be happy with what you've got, Baloo is the perfect choice.
