    Winnie-THER-Pooh?

    Whilst reading A.A. Milne's classic children's story, Winnie-the-Pooh, I came upon a very odd section:

    When I first heard his [Winnie-the-Pooh's] name, I said, just as you are
    going to say, "But I thought he was a boy?"
    "So did I," said Christopher Robin.
    "Then you can't call him Winnie?"
    "I don't."
    "But you said---"
    "He's Winnie-ther-Pooh. Don't you know what 'ther' means?"
    "Ah, yes, now I do," I said quickly; and I hope you [referring to the
    reader] do too, because it is all the explanation you are going to get.

    So, what I am getting at, is, does anybody get what "Winnie-ther-Pooh" means? I've thought about it and researched it for hours and couldn't come up with an answer... It is driving me crazy.

    Maybe "Winnie- t-HER -Pooh"?

    It's a terrible explanation, but that's all I could think of.

    maybe it's just a bit of nonsense the writer came up with to prove his point of Winnie being a boy....without actually having to come up with a REAL reason.
