Hey guys! Doing this for people who are interested in Fairytale histories or for people who would like to know. As you may know, Tangled is from the Fairytale story of Rapunzel from the Brothers Grimm. The story originates in Germany and despite the fact that its a children's story, the story itself had contained themes that parents today would not deem appropriate and has had certain parts changed. The name Rapunzel is in fact a plant, though not specified (although its an edible vegetable in the story). The reason why the main protagonist was given this name was because while her mother was expecting her, she had craved a certain plant ( Rapunzel) and had her husband steal some from a neighbor's garden. An old woman had owned the garden and was mad that her plants had been attempted to be stolen. Rapunzel's parents were refused of having the plant and as a deal for obtaining it, they had to give their baby to the old woman after it was born. Her parents had accepted the deal and after the baby had been born, the old woman had named it Rapunzel because of the plant. Today, it has been adapted into Disney's 50th motion picture due to the story's popularity and altered a bit to make a great movie! I hope this may be of use to some of you :)
