Disney Character Baby Names

Guest Author - Nancy Man

Disney has put out dozens of feature films that we've all heard of, such as The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

But did you also know that many of these films ended up popularizing particular baby names?

The best example of this is Ariel, which was only able to rank among the top 100 baby names in the U.S. in 1990, 1991 and 1992--no doubt due to the success of "The Little Mermaid" (released in November, 1989).

Esmeralda may have also been assisted by Disney. It was already on its way up in terms of popularity, but seemed to peak early in the years following the release of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (released in June, 1996).

And let's not forget Fantasia Barrino, who won the third season of American Idol, or Ashlee Simpson's newborn son, who was given middle name Mowgli.

If you love Disney films, here are some Disney character names that might make great baby names:

Ali from Aladdin (1992)
Alice from Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Ariel from The Little Mermaid
Aurora from Sleeping Beauty (1959)
Bagheera from The Jungle Book (1967)
Basil from The Great Mouse Detective (1986)
Belle from Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Bernard from The Rescuers (1977)
Bianca from The Rescuers
Eric from The Little Mermaid
Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Jasmine from Aladdin
Kala from Tarzan (1999)
Kenai from Brother Bear (2003)
Lilo from Lilo & Stitch (2002)
Mulan from Mulan (1998)
Nala from The Lion King (1994)
Oliver from Oliver & Company (1988)
Peter from Peter Pan (1953)
Philip from Sleeping Beauty
Sebastian from The Little Mermaid
Simba from The Lion King
Taran from The Black Cauldron (1985)
Tod from The Fox and the Hound (1981)
