Ursidae I'm guessing is from the scientific name for the bear family on the species tree. Razz

I agree with Latrans, and I'll add that I think it's of Latin origin and could be pointing to either the bear family in general or the star constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor.

On the other hand... If you're referring to its use in another webcomic or similar, I'm totally lost!

You memorized it in the year 1984? Or got it from the book titled '1984?' Very Happy

Not so hard, really. The constellations that we commonly call the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper also have Latin names: Ursa Major and Ursa Minor: Big Bear and Little Bear. Most taxonomic names are based on Latin, so ...

Also, bonus points to E-N for pointing out how many people have an old nickname that they'd like to bury in secret. Laughing
