His name is a representation of the onomatopoeic phrase "hee-haw," which refers to thebraying sound made by a normal donkey, written in the Cockney dialect, which is characterised by h dropping in addition to the usual British r dropping.
I never knew all that letter dropping business before! The reason I love Eeyore however, is because he's this big cuddly creature who has those original 'puss-in-boot' eyes and you can't help but want to hug him tight and make him feel better! The poor guy has been having a series of bad days since 1926! I'd be a little pessimistic and anhedonic too if my house fell down for 85 years! He's a truly lovable, cute, friendly, caring grey donkey, and I love him! My favourite Disney character: EEYORE!
