What's Misha the bear's last name?

In Russian fairy tales, bears are named Misha. Or so my girlfriend, a student of Russian, says; so does Wikipedia
and this New York Times blog
which quotes something saying "all Russian bears are named Misha". But does this Russian bear have a last name?

She swears that the Russian fairy-tale bear has a canonical last name but she can't remember what it is! Any ideas? Or any sources that might be useful? (I don't read Russian. She does.)
