There is nothing wrong with wanting to continue your legacy through a tiny bird you found in your cave. You do not know any bears in the world that could carry your name, so maybe someone, even a bird, should, right?
You imagine a glorious life for a tiny bird with such a ferocious and wonderful name.
Bear the Bird.
Baby Bird Bear the Second.
There are so many options!
Your bearness will transcend time and space as you pass your name and as your predecessors surely do the same. Maybe Bear XXVI will one day traverse the forest. Who knows what kind of creature it could be. Maybe a bird. Maybe a bear. Maybe some kind of strange hybrid.
What matters: you will live on.
