Give your fierce little bear cub a name to keep them warm for their whole life—not just for winter! Yrsa is a feminine name of Finnish origin. Derived from the Old Norse word Ýrr, meaning “wild,” “mad,” or “furious,” and the root Latin word urus, meaning “bear,” Yrsa means “little she-bear.” Dating back to the time of the Vikings, this sharp and sweet moniker works just as well in today’s climate. Yrsa is also the name of a famed tragic Scandinavian heroine of legend. With a name like this, you can expect a lot of ferociously adorable temper tantrums and equally adorable daily bear hugs from baby Yrsa.
