Girl names inspired by Disney
With over 90 years of history, Walt Disney has played a big part in many of our childhoods. Watching a classic such as ‘Bambi’ and ‘The Lion King’ (to name but a few) fills us with fond memories, so it isn’t surprising that we see many parent’s taking inspiration from Disney when choosing a baby name.
Elsa is the latest girl name to see a boost in popularity after the release of the 2013 film “Frozen”. Disney princess names such as Belle, Jasmin and Ariel have also remained popular in our list of girl’s names over the years, and with numerous film adaptations being released they’re sure to stay.
