ふと気付いたこと/くまの**さん??

今日ふと気付いたこと。
仕事が終わって家に帰ると、息子(5歳)がニコニコしながら出迎えてくれていろいろと話を聞かせてくれます。「ああ、これぞ親の醍醐味!」とか思ってついつい親バカな気分になるのですが、

 こいつ毎日電車の話しかしてない・・・ orz

「今日は**線を見た」とか「総武線の6 doors見たことないねー」とか、そんな話しかしないんですね。いや、それはそれで微笑ましいところはあるのですが、このまま「電車男」になりそうで心配(笑)。

んで、もう一つふと気付いたこと。
夕食後に彼の英語教育のために「くまのプーさん(英語版)」を一緒に見ていたんですが、

 "Pooh"って何だ? ヽ(゚∀゚)

と言うのは、英語ではプーさんの事を"Winnie the Pooh"と呼ぶんですが、"AA the BB"と言った場合、普通は名前が"AA"でその属性が"BB"なんですよね。例えば"Popeye the Sailorman"とか、"Jack the Ripper"(切り裂きジャック)とか、"Dora the Explorer"(アメリカで人気のある子供番組)とか。そのルールに従うと、プーさんの場合名前が"Winnie"でその属性が"Pooh"になるハズなんです。

んで気になって調べてみたのですが、"Pooh"の由来には諸説あるようです。

・"Pooh"=「(幼児語で)熊」説
ただ、辞書とかにはそういう意味は載ってないんですよね。ということは、プーさんが有名になって後でそういう意味になったのでしょうか?(完全に私見)

・"Pooh"=「揶揄」説
"Pooh"は幼児語で「ウンチ」を指します。このため、ちょっとマヌケな所があるプーさんを揶揄したのがその由来、という説もあったり。ホンマかいな?

・"Pooh"=「作者の息子が飼っていた白鳥の名前」説
さもありなん、といった感じもしますが、なら"Pooh"が名前になるような・・・

んで、いま個人的に信憑性が高いかな、と思っているのは、

・"Pooh"=「ゲゲゲ」説
英語版のオープニングテーマを聞いていると、"Winnie the Pooh Bear"と言っているのですね。そうなると"Pooh"は"Bear"を形容したものと考えるのが妥当な気がします。んで、"Pooh"には雰囲気だけの意味しかない、と。つまり「ゲゲゲの鬼太郎」の「ゲゲゲ」と同じという訳です。

いずれにしても、日本ではなぜ"Pooh"が名前みたいに呼ばれているのでしょうね。くだらないことですが、なかなか興味深いところです(笑)。
