You may have noticed how obsessed some little girls can be with Disney princesses and this can spark an idea to name your child after one of these princesses. Or perhaps you were a huge fan of that Disney movie yourself growing up and love the sound of the name for your own child. Somehow the Disney movies seem to have come up with some very pretty and attractive sounding names for their characters, so lovely to draw inspiration from if you are stuck. With so many Disney movies made over the years, we have some compiled some of the outstanding names from these so you don’t need to go trawling through them all. It might be helpful to know a bit about the character since you will want your child to have a positive association to it. Though Ursula is a unique name, once your child understands her character in the movie, she may not like that her name is associated with an evil sea witch.
