The British author, A.A.Milne, named the character "Winnie-the-Pooh" after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character "Christopher Robin". Christopher's toys also lent their names to most of the other characters. Christopher Robin's toy bear is now on display at the Main Branch of the New York Public Library in New York City.

Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after "Winnie", a Canadian black bear which he often saw at the London Zoo, and "Pooh", a swan they had met while on holiday. The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War. He named the bear "Winnie" after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "Winnie" was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition as The Fort Garry Horse regimental mascot. Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while he and his unit were in France; after the war she was officially donated to the zoo, as she had become a much loved attraction there. Pooh the swan appears as a character in its own right in "When We Were Very Young".

I have a tattoo of "Eeyore" acquired to cover, in part, an appendectomy scar.

Most hetero marriages aren't "exclusive" either, truth be told.

Will you EVER stop contorting the facts?

It has been overwhelmingly rejected by homosexuals as an actual practice in every country that allows it, and studies have shown that most such 'marriages' aren't even exclusive arrangements.
No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No child is ever born as a direct result and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Homosexual 'marriage,' where legal, isn't even a basic building block of homosexual society, much less of society as a whole. There is no standardized format for homosexual 'marriages,' and no economically unequal genders are involved.
Why not forget about disenfranchising others in order for force your concocted, failed philosophy into law? Why not try a little live and let live?

Poor imbecilic David. You post your usual homophobic hatred then follow it with "Why not try a little live and let live?" I didn't think anyone, not even you, could be that stupid. Even Jesus is now having a good laugh at your expense.

..... I suppose when A.A.Milne wrote his stuff it didn't matter at all whether the characters were straight or gay or (whatever). But the word "Marriage" should be very clearly defined in all jurisdictions - by law!
