About This Name: Teddy Hilton is Perez Hilton’s beloved Goldendoodle. A Great Dane named Teddy the Wonder Dog became a favorite of viewers in the 1900s when he appeared in The Nick of Time Baby (1916) and Teddy at the Throttle (1917). Quite a few people have had this name too — some of them are actors Teddy Dunn (The Gilmore Girls) and Teddy Sears (Raising the Bar), Teddy Bridgewater (quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings) and, of course, Teddy Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States.
