55 Beautiful Names Inspired By Fairy Tales & Disney Movies

33 Baby Name Ideas Inspired By Classic Fairy Tales

Disney movie characters and superheroes, with the hopes of them turning out exactly the way these characters are? Well, if you’re due soon, or are just browsing the web for interesting yet classy names for your future kid, here’s an almost exhaustive list of all the beautiful baby names from classic Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movies! 

The Little Mermaid

1. Ariel

Otherwise known as the Little Mermaid (in the original Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 Danish fairy tale), Ariel is the main character of the franchise and is the youngest daughter of King Triton, which means, yes, she’s a princess. She’s a character who is extremely curious and adventure-seeking, which is probably why she’s always in trouble with her father. That being said, she also has a lovely voice and is the envy of most of the mermaid kingdom, especially her evil Aunt Ursala. If you’re expecting a daughter, this could be one of the names you can consider!

2. Sebastian

Did you know that Sebastian’s full name is Horatio Thelonious Ignacious Crustaceous Sebastian? The funny sidekick of the Disney adaptation, Sebastian is in-fact a lobster and the “royal court composer” for King Triton. Armed with an amazing voice and a somewhat good sense of wisdom, Sebastian could be a great name for your boy. The perfect nickname would be Seb. 

3. Attina, Alana, Adella, Aquata, Arista and Andrina

These are Ariel’s sisters. If you’re expecting… more than one daughter, Attina, Alana, Adella, Aquata, Arista and Andrina could be the names for your six other princesses, though it can be quite a mouthful. Though they do not have much of any dialogue in any of The Little Mermaid movies, these sisters are extremely jovial and are closely knitted. Their nicknames could be At, Al, Ella, Aqua, Sta and Andi!

4. Max

A lovable character in the Disney adaptation, Max is Prince Eric’s loyal Old English Sheepdog, who shows not only bravery but also the ability to sniff out Eric’s true love. Max or even Maximum could be great names for your little boy. 

Beauty and the Beast

5. Belle

Otherwise known as the Beauty in the original fairy tale, Belle is a character known for her bravery, self-sacrificial love, and immense love for…books. She also never judge a person by his/her looks and has the aptness to see true inner beauty. Belle, Elle, or even Bel can be possible names and nicknames for your little girl!

6. Maurice

Belle’s father in the Disney adaptation, Maurice is characterised as a somewhat creative yet “crazy” inventor for coming up with ridiculous and impossible ideas for machines. However, despite this “shortcoming”, Maurice is also clearly devoted to his only daughter, Belle, especially after the death of his wife. Maurice is definitely one of the more unique names for your boy.

7. Claudette, Laurette and Paulette

If you’re scratching your head wondering who are these three characters, well, they’re the names of the less-known triplets that’s shown fawning over Gaston in the Disney movie. Even though they might not be the brightest (as can be inferred from their other name “Bimbettes”), we do think these could be beautiful names for little girls. 


8. Anna

One of the main characters of the movie, Princess Anna is known for being one of the most caring, optimistic, daring, and brave people you’ll ever meet. If you’ve watched the movie, you’ll also know that Anna is a genuine person and her act of true love managed to thaw a frozen heart. Possible names or nicknames for your little girl could be Annie or even Ann!

9. Elsa

Elsa might come off as a rigid, strict, and reserved person at the beginning of the movie, not wanting to sing or build a snowman with Anna. However, she is, in fact, an extremely responsible Queen who will do anything to keep her kingdom and her sister safe, even if it means having to let the world know of her mighty secret. If you have two girls, the older one could be called Elsa, with Ellie or Elle as possible nicknames.

10. Kristoff

Though an uncommon name, Kristoff is a character in the movie that is synonymous with hard work, dedication, and independence. He is also a genuinely nice person, accompanying Anna on her dangerous mission to end the eternal winter. Kristoff could be one of the nicest and most unique names for your little boy, with a possible nickname, Kris. 


11. Ella

Ella is the character’s original name in the 2015 live remake of this classic fairytale (Yes, Cinderella isn’t the character’s actual name in the movie). She is a hardworking individual and an extremely good-natured girl. Possible nicknames for your little girl could be Ellie and Elle. 

12. Jaq and Gus

Yes, everyone’s favourite mice in the Disney adaptation of this classic. Did you know that they have real names? They are actually Jacques and Octavius respectively. These two mice are super loyal and good-natured, helping Cinderella find her one true love. If you’re expecting twins soon, these are cute names to have!

13. Anastasia

Anastasia is one of Cinderella’s step-sisters in the Disney movie, and boy, did she start off as an extremely irritating and annoying character, trying to vie for Prince Charming’s attention. However, if you’re a true die-hard Disney fan, you would’ve watched the sequel and witness Anastasia’s struggle to find her own true love. This could be one of the perfect names for your little girl, with possible nicknames such as Annie or Ann!


14. Jasmine

A whole new world~ A new fantastic point of view~ Princess Jasmine is a confident and kind individual who is always dreaming about her next adventure. This name is simple and easy to remember, making it one of the perfect names for your little girl. 


15. Gideon

Gideon might not be the “hero” in Pinocchio and is in fact, one of the antagonists of the fairy tale. But, the name still has a flair to it and could be an excellent name for your baby boy. If anything, you’ll be happy to know that Gideon is relatively smart and has a happy-go-lucky personality, making him easily satisfied. 

16. Cleo

A simple name that’s easy enough to remember, Cleo is the bubbly, good-natured, albeit a little flirtatious goldfish belonging to Geppetto. There is no doubt in Cleo being a one of the nicest names for your little girl.

Tangled/ Rapunzel

17. Flynn

Born Eugene Fitzherbert, Flynn Rider only appears in the Disney adaptation of this classic story. A funny and sarcastic individual as portrayed in the movie, Flynn is a character that you’ll slowly grow to love because of his genuine and caring personality. Either Flynn or Eugene could be great names for your little boy. 

18. Rapunzel

Smart, clever, educated and a fun-loving girl who always seeks out adventure, Rapunzel is clearly not a girl to be trifled with (especially when she’s armed with a pot in her hand). It’s definitely not a requirement to have extremely long hair, but if you picture your girl rocking this look, Rapunzel could be one of the most perfect names for your little girl. Possible nicknames include Zelle or even Elle!

Sleeping Beauty

19. Aurora/ Briar Rose

Aurora, otherwise known as Briar Rose, after she was renamed by the three fairy godmothers, is characterised as an extremely beautiful and pretty lady, who is gentle and pure. Whether it’s Aurora, Briar, or even Rose, we think these could be great names for your little girl (or triplets)! 

20. Flora

Flora is actually one of the names of the three fairy godmothers, and it is such a beautiful name. She is extremely helpful and together with her two sisters, they use their magical powers to help Aurora find her one true love – Prince Phillip. Psst, Flo could be her nickname!

21. Phillip

Prince Phillip is actually the first prince that has a name in Disney’s adaptation of these classic tales. Portrayed as a handsome, young, and brave person who slays the antagonist – Maleficent – in the animation to save his true love – Aurora, Phillip could be an excellent name for your young boy, with Phil as a possible nickname.

22. Stefan

If you’re wondering who is Stefan, well, this is actually King Stefan, Aurora’s father. Not much is said about him in Disney’s adaptation of the tale, except the fact that he is very protective of his daughter. Stefan could be a nice name for your boy, with possibly a nickname such as Stef. 

23. Leah

Queen Leah is Aurora’s mother and similar to King Stefan, not much is revealed in the movies. Leah could still be one of the prettiest names for your little girl though. 

24. Hubert

Similar to King Stefan and Queen Leah, not much is known about King Hubert except for the fact that he is Prince Phillip’s father and King Stefan’s best friend. Hubert has a nice and jovial tone and could be one of the nicest names for a boy.

The Princess and the Frog

25. Tiana

Tiana is a slightly less well-known princess from Disney’s animated film The Princess and the Frog. Unlike the other princesses, Tiana does not live in the castle. Instead, she is a hardworking waitress who works diligently in hopes that one day she will be able to open her own restaurant. Her life changes when she kisses a frog and turns into a frog too! Both of them embark on a journey to find the cure. Naming your baby girl Tiana might give her the same amount of courage and determination to chase her dreams in life too!
