Disney Character Baby Names

Baby Name Inspiration For Die-Hard Disney Fans

If baby's first trip to the Magic Kingdom is high on your list of motherhood milestones, and you're already dreaming up a first Halloween costume based on your favorite Disney flick, you've come to the right place. We took a trip down memory lane and came up with 15 beautiful baby names — all inspired by beloved Disney characters. No Mickeys here — we think any one of these would pay homage to your love of Disney while still giving your baby a name that'll be taken seriously.

    • Sebastian: Inspired by the fun-loving crab in The Little Mermaid, "Sebastian" has Shakespearean origins and can be shortened to "Seb," "Baz," or "Bas."
    • Aurora: The heroine of Sleeping Beauty, the name's Latin origins translate to mean "dawn."
    • Briar Rose: Another Sleeping Beauty-inspired pick, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen chose the moniker for their baby girl in 2014.
    • Penny: The brave little heroine of The Rescuers represents the virtue of faith in the animated film.
    • Nala: The playful Lion King cub's name would translate well for a fun-loving baby girl.
    • Winnie: Let everyone's favorite Pooh Bear inspire your sweet-as-honey girl.
    • Jake: The protagonist in the super-popular Jake and the Never Land Pirates, we love the ease and spunk of this one-syllable name.
    • Wendy: Naming a baby girl Wendy after the Peter Pan character suggests a belief the enduring magic and joy of childhood.
    • Marian: The name of Robin Hood's ladylike love has English origins meaning "of or from the sea."
    • Hugo: The name of the jovial friend of Quasimodo from Disney's adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame means "bright in mind and spirit."
    • Evangeline: Inspired by the magical character in the 2009 animated film The Princess and the Frog, "Evangeline" translates to "messenger of good news."
    • Ella: With Spanish origins, "Ella" is the spirited star of Ella Enchanted.
    • Gus: Inspired by Cinderella's lovable sidekick (who's admittedly a mouse), this name has a warm, paternal vibe to it.
    • Ariel: The heroine of The Little Mermaid has Hebrew origins, and was originally intended to be a boy's name — use it for either gender!
    • Daisy: Meaning fresh, wholesome, and energetic, Donald Duck's main squeeze makes a breezy and fun name for a little girl.
    • Jasmine: Another floral name, Aladdin's exotic princess experienced an enormous rise in popularity after the film's 1992 release.
