Did any one name their child a Disney name? Of my five children we have one, her name is Aurora.

I named my troll PinocchioBoy - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #160 10:34PM
Darn. Did I miss all the troll fun? - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #343 10:38PM
A quick search will fill you in and be the source of countless chortles. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #160 10:39PM
bhahaha - Duchess_SMK  6197.6 #16 10:51PM
Tried searching. He is gone. 😞 I was looking forward to reading some troll action - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #215 10:52PM
This is cracking me up. I will never look at Donald Duck Orange juice the same way again. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1258.8 #130 11:09PM
I searched and found him. It's Pinocchio_boy. Many of his posts were deleted though. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #76 11:26PM
Onm nom nom is a very unusual name ONM. - connielu  686.5 #268 12:49AM
Is PinocchioBoy related to RealBoy? - cesium55  531.8 #375 12:53AM
Ahahahahahaha! - madsdad  1868.2 #83 9:48AM
My last name is Durr. No matter what I name my children they will be teased. I love the name 'Mae' for a girl, but say it together. Now that's a Disney name! - erincredible  207.5 #1859 10:17PM
^ugh wrong thread but read below, you'll get it - erincredible  207.5 #1859 10:20PM
Not sure if it's considered Disney, but if I have a girl, I want to name her Anaheim :) - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 10:36PM
Cute! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #581 10:39PM
:) - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 10:49PM
^^You don't like my name choice? πŸ˜“ - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 10:54PM
I'm going to name mine Walnut. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #210 11:04PM
harbor. - nicoleface  1752.6 #90 11:10PM
Mine will be Katella - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:13PM
I'm guessing you all don't like my choice.. :/ - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 11:14PM
Ball - SueBayou  2019.0 #72 11:18PM
The other day I was eavesdropping on some ladies who were discussing a fellow girlfriend, who was so "obsessed with Disneyland" that she named her daughter Katella - angelle  8.7 #11366 11:19PM
It's hard to go through life with a very unusual name. So you might really want to consider how a future child of yours would feel having a name like that. Just my opinion. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:20PM
No way @angelle! That's nuts! 😳 - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:21PM
Not Disney, but no joke my insurance guy's name is Harry Bald - Villescas8  606.9 #317 11:25PM
Well Paulina isn't exactly a normal name and I never had a hard time in my life because of it..I happen to really like the name I chose. - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 11:25PM
I've heard Paulina many times before, it's not unusual. I'm coming from experience, (Zoe) is a nickname, it's not fun having a nutty name as a kid. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:28PM
Well I'll keep that in mind when the time comes. - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 11:35PM
Wait do Zoe is nickname, what's real name? DM me - Villescas8  606.9 #317 11:37PM
i know it sucks to have a weird name growing up, but i like yours, zoe. :) - nicoleface  1752.6 #90 11:38PM
Thanks Nicole! 😘 Will do V8! - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:41PM
Yeah, Nicole is sooo weird! - cesium55  531.8 #375 11:46PM
Having a different name is very rewarding and frustrating at times. I get tons of compliments, but my name is often mispronounced even after they are told. - Armenda  1154.7 #147 11:46PM
When my son asks why I named him Tucson I'm going to tell him you gave me the idea! 😝 love you twin!! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #223 11:49PM
I was always jealous of my friends who could find their names on keychains and stickers and stuff. People still cannot say my name correctly and I have to spell it out for almost everyone. I love my name now, but I didn't really embrace it till after my mid 20's. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #215 11:49PM
Exactly ONM. I just wanted to be like everyone else when I was younger. But your name is beautiful! And yeah, I'm sure you can imagine what I get Army.... :D πŸ˜‚ - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:53PM
Oh yea..I don't even want to pronounce it. I'm glad you go by Zoe! haha - Armenda  1154.7 #147 11:57PM
Now I'm curious as to what your names are.. Lol but my name is somewhat common, and I still hardly find it on keychains :[ - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #154 12:00AM
Eh, oh well. I love the name, and that's what matters. I'm not one who likes to be like everyone else, and I hope my child will like being unique as well lol. - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 12:01AM
Lol Twin!! You should name your son Milwaukee 😁 - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 12:03AM
ces, nicole is the WEIRDEST name i've ever heard. fits the person though. ;P - nicoleface  1752.6 #90 12:03AM
Haha Army!! Face is not a weird name. 😜 And really, it's not all that matters. Your child should come first, not just what you like, especially when several of us with different names are telling you it wasn't fun. But you're young, clearly, hopefully you'll reconsider. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 12:11AM
I named my boys very plain, normal names. And funny enough they are the only William and David in their grade. I think an unusual name that is unusual because it's an ethnic name is one thing. But giving a child a name just to be different is selfish. You don't have to live with that name. The child does. And you may change your mind by the time you have your girl, or your husband vetoes the name. Or you name her Anaheim. Doesn't matter, as long as you really thought about all the sides and opinions. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #215 12:19AM
I'm 21, I won't be having kids anytime soon. But it's not like im going to ask my newborn child what she would like to be named. My parents chose my name because they liked it, same with your parents. I don't see myself picking the name Mary just because it's normal, because like I said, I like to be different and I want to teach my children that it's ok to be different. - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 12:20AM
Young, like I said. And it's obvious you aren't a Mama. You wouldn't think that way if you were. Having a weird name doesn't teach a child that it's ok to be different. It just points to you and how you think. Talk to us in 10 years and we'll see where you are. I'll bet money, you'll wonder what the heck you were thinking. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 12:26AM
Actually, my aunt named me because my parents thought I was going to be a boy and had only thought of Eric for a name. I think it was an "Oh well" moment - cesium55  531.8 #375 12:26AM
ces, you would have made a WONDERFUL eric. 😜 - nicoleface  1752.6 #90 12:29AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 12:31AM
hahaha thanks face! Eric Lee... that's me! - cesium55  531.8 #375 12:32AM
I have classmates named 'Rock' and 'Rusty'... Just because their parents thought it would be cool to name their kid something different and "fun" they had to go through their entire childhood with those names, getting picked on even by teachers. Unique names are great and all but I would definitely consider the negative consequences that could arise. - Jenniferr  506.7 #396 12:43AM
Well there was Rock Hudson... but there's also Rusty Griswold - cesium55  531.8 #375 12:45AM
but Rusty was a nickname for Russell.. my friend's legal name was literally Rusty LOL I didn't believe it when I first met him.. - Jenniferr  506.7 #396 12:51AM
i legitimately knew someone named princess. legally named princess. it was weird. - nicoleface  1752.6 #90 12:57AM
I overheard someone on the phone telling them her name was Queen Esther something or other. Didn't catch the last name - cesium55  531.8 #375 12:58AM
I knew a set of twins in high school named Tom and Jerry. I swear, their parents named them Tom and Jerry. And I am pretty sure the cartoons were born first. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #215 1:09AM
My friend that's a teacher told me she had a student named Mister. Mom told her she named him that because peopl would have to show him respect no matter what cause they had to call him Mister. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #108 1:11AM
I have one of those weird names. It's very common in Costa Rica, where my family is from, but here... most people can't say it correctly. So I just go by a shorter version. lol. - SleepyTortuga  288.4 #946 1:19AM
I know twins named Alvin and Simon but no Theodore - cesium55  531.8 #375 1:22AM
I enroll families into state funded programs and I have seen so many names that make u wonder what patents were thinking when they named their kids. All were on Burt cert. I had a Chase Budweiser, Pretty Sparkle, Tom Hanks , and 3 brothers their names were Jefferson, Clinton and Reagan. πŸ˜ƒ - DSNYCheeks3  866.1 #205 1:30AM
Omg! I knew of a student years ago named Pretty Sparkle Ashley!!! πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.3 #296 1:59AM
My name is so common. If I ever have a girl I would love her name to be Chloe Nayeli (Nayeli is "I love you" in native american)! Ha Chloe and Milwakee! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #223 2:09AM
My name is somewhat common. I'm starting to hear it more. If I have a child that is a girl, I'm gonna name her La-a. - TheNewTrent  749.0 #239 2:21AM
"Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash anyone? - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #184 2:25AM
^ yessss jessica! i'm surprised i didn't think of it earlier. - nicoleface  1752.6 #90 2:31AM
Perfect example of why to not name your kid an odd name. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #184 2:34AM
ima name my kid zing zing zing ba. - kristian  1992.1 #74 4:05AM
I know a girl named Unique. That's her actual name. - mermaidhair  176.3 #2252 5:10AM
I know all about unique names so I can empathize. Although, in my case, I absolutely love my name. I had a ton of ridicule as a child: Taco Bell, Dibble, Diablo, etc. - EpicDio  460.2 #447 7:14AM
My daughter has an uncommon name, I'm hoping when I can explain to her the reason we chose it, it'll help her embrace it at an earlier age. I do feel bad though that she won't be able to buy a mug or keychain with her name, but we can always order customized stuff for her. @SleepyTortuga You're tica??? My family is from Costa Rica as well. =) - LBChica  2390.7 #58 7:21AM
I went to elementary school with a girl named Princess and high school with a girl named Jingle. Mine is at least a family name haha! - Armenda  1154.7 #147 7:28AM
I think it can go either way. My name is Sarah. All through school I was Sarah C. because there was always at least one other Sarah in my class and I hated it. I've always wanted a unique name. - MXPrincess399  745.3 #245 7:50AM
I went to school with a boy named Shannon. There was also a group of sisters named Treasure and Secret and thier brother was Tiger - GoofyMom77  729.1 #253 7:58AM
Anaheim makes me think of the chile. - WishIWereThere  289.9 #932 8:06AM
I'm just glad things didn't get out of hand last night, and now I have a new name! - AnaheimsMom  244.0 #1385 9:19AM
@Goofy, I went to school with a male Shannon too! @AnaheimsMom - How ever did you come up with the name! :-P - Armenda  1154.7 #147 9:26AM
I also knew a Tuesday, Sunday, and a January - GoofyMom77  729.1 #253 9:32AM
There was a girl in my elementary school named Precious. I also have a friend named Charna :) I'm all for creative names, but you have to know not to cross the line into weird. - BettyPoop  237.4 #1459 10:00AM
Uniqueness in itself can be a good thing as it promotes individualism. But it's been researched and proven that too much individualism can lead to narcissism. Which in the real world can be a downfall for those only taught to be unique. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  746.0 #242 10:11AM
Also please think of the people who must say such unique names. When I was a teacher I had the most difficult time calling my students out loud with names like Pumpkin, Dymond, UrHighness, Cookie, Nazareth, Essex, and Pepper. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  746.0 #242 10:20AM
My name is uncommon and is also spelled a little different. My parents explained to me why they chose it when I was pretty young and I have always loved my name! I have to correct people all the time but since I love my name it honestly doesn't bother me. 😊 - MinnieMousewife  895.4 #193 10:23AM
SPR, haha I am not sure if I could contain myself if I had those student names in my class. We will see on Monday when I get my rosters - Villescas8  606.9 #317 10:39AM
@AnaheimsMom- wait- your user name is your unborn potential daughter's name? hm. Well, 'Anaheim' name is a blend of "Ana", after the nearby Santa Ana River, and "heim", a common German place name compound originally meaning "home". - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5728.6 #18 10:46AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I LOVE that you changed your name!!! - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 10:49AM
When I worked for an afterschool program I had two twin girls named Ima and Ura but it was really really sad because their last name was pig. - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1676 10:57AM
@PTcm- what!?? was that a cruel joke!? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5728.6 #18 10:59AM
I believe they were in foster care because the mom was on drugs. But they were the sweetest little kids. - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1676 11:08AM
I know I'm coming to this convo ridiculously late, but I too have a uniqueish name: April Dae. My dad was a hippy and wanted to name me April Love. My mom said she didn't want her daughter to be a stripper. So she said April Dawn. But I was born in the evening. So they decided to name me April Day, but let my mom who was hopped up on pain meds spell it. I think it's hilarious now, but didn't like it as a child. I alwaysswore I would name my daughter Mae Dae to get back at them. - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #343 9:45PM
I'm a proud member of the "Why do you bother checking, they're not going to have your name on that mug/ruler/keychain etc" club. While my name isn't really crazy, it is unique... I am now at the point where I respond to "Kayla" (it's pronounced Ky-lah) when that's not my name because I'm tired of correcting people all the time lol - KylaShea  632.7 #302 10:09PM
I work in child welfare and have come across some crazy names. Most recently, Adrenalina. - tballzz  558.2 #346 10:13PM
My ex went to school with a girl named ABC. It was pronounced absidee - KylaShea  632.7 #302 10:13PM
Just thought I'd share my cousins unique names: raven and majik, both girls. I've never met anyone named Anaheim, so it would definitely be unique! - Princessana08  69.7 #4056 10:15PM
Anyone remember the MWer who asked our opinion on the baby being named Tomarrow? - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 10:23PM
I worked at schools in Alaska doing school pictures and came across a boy named Nimrod. I felt so bad for him. But the weirdest one I have ever heard is twin boys at a daycare my cousin worked at..Orangello and Lemongello. The first thing their mom ate after they were born orange jello and lemon jello. And yes I met their mother. - Deltachiq  1228.0 #134 10:47PM
I met a kid named Nimrod also when I worked at a summer camp! - Slotherini  1079.4 #161 10:48PM
kid name Currency at our school - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5728.6 #18 10:55PM
My name is Kori Rae and I've always been made fun of for it. Especially for my last name which a lot of cruel jokes sprouted from. (Even a certain cm at starbucks was like "that's a Guy name") but I do love my name now because it is unique and only a few girls are named Kori! Plus I love all the middle names with the suffix -ae. My sister's middle name is Mae. No kid ever likes their name until they're older I think. Name your child anything you want! - mermaidhair  176.3 #2252 11:02PM
my name is so common that there was a total of three Samantha's on by street growing up. so I have my grandmother to thank for giving my nickname that I use here :) I have only met one other SammyJo. the names I have picked out are pretty traditional and like itso I can come up with a nickname that suits their own personality :) - SammyJo  348.7 #640 11:39PM
SammyJo I feel your pain. Amy is way too common. So common that it is my stepsisters name and my best friend in high school. It was fun when the three of us were together. When someone would yell Amy we would yell back "which one?" - Deltachiq  1228.0 #134 11:58PM
I'm tired so I read five as favorite. I was all, I hope she didn't name another one Cinderella and make her do all the chores. - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #343 10:19PM
I will name my son Rafiki - CptKirk  766.3 #233 11:48PM
Great choice. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 11:49PM
I don't usually weigh in on topics like this, however I do get to go to a few deliveries and I always ask the what the name is. Some are out there in my opinion (but I'm not the parent). ABC did a show on names. People that were very well educated, but had very unusual or ethnic names, were NOT getting jobs. ABC changed the name on the resume (all were online), and one woman had 15 requests for interviews in 30 min. Unfortunately, despite the "diversity" in the American culture, people are still very judgmental by preconceived ideas about a name. The Internet keeps the face to face contact for last. It is the first gift a parent gives a child. - Sugarbuzz  227.7 #1592 5:45AM
Wow, that's really interesting. - mermaidhair  176.3 #2252 6:15AM
It was very eye opening. Almost frightening. Being female, my name was a male name when I was younger. Now it is a more unisex name even leaning towards female. I have had distant relatives (who never met me) ask if I was a boy or girl. - Sugarbuzz  227.7 #1592 6:43AM
My sister in law had to put a shorter version of her name in order for her to get called for interviews. Its really sad! - Armenda  1154.7 #147 7:39AM
I totally would've, but my husband would've never let me name our son Mickey lol :) - MrsDisneyMommy29  280.3 #1008 10:18PM
I named my kid Maleficent. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 10:26PM
Did the doctor know how to deliver a baby that was half human, half pure evil? - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #343 10:31PM
I hope she wasn't born with the horns, ouch. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #160 10:35PM
Nice Friends quote. - AKMouse  488.2 #411 10:37PM
Thank you. - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #343 10:38PM
No. Horns grew in after she turned 16. And it was a water birth. Helped dim her flames. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 10:57PM
Not that I plan on having a kid anytime soon but I've been hoarding potential girl names! Anabelle (belle), Ariel, Violet, Giselle, Wendy, Alice, Bianca, Jane, Jasmine, Olivia and Willow are all potentials in my book. - mermaidhair  176.3 #2252 10:46PM
That is Funny that you mentioned Anabelle, because that is a potential for us because of Belle. I would prob use the nickname "Bella". Aurora loves that her name is a princess name. She likes seeing her name in the castle! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #581 10:52PM
I always wanted a little girl named Isabelle or Anabelle so I could call her "bells"! A cute name for sure :-) - mermaidhair  176.3 #2252 10:59PM
Never thought of "Bells" as a nickname , another good reason for liking Anabelle! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #581 11:02PM
I have a daughter named Willow, and another one named Kennedy. They both love there names. They're a little uncommon but not to different. I also have a granddaughter named Ariel. - Heatherluvsdisney  242.8 #1401 9:48AM
There's a MW with a close connection to both the names Wendy AND Alice! Can anyone guess whooo she is? - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  746.0 #242 11:46PM
Doesn't ring a bell. - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 11:52PM
Ooooh, and that's interesting. We always thought of Anabelle as well. - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 11:53PM
We have a daughter named Jasmine!! Her favorite movie still to this day is Aladdin and she is 15 now! - Beej  239.5 #1437 10:52PM
I like Jasmine! My daughter could relate, she is 14 and still loves Sleeping Beauty! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #581 10:55PM
Im going to name my 1st future daughter Isabel...after my grandfather...call her Bel for short...i want to spell it "Isabelle" so it would be obvious her nickname is because of 'Belle' - bellerie  22.2 #6608 11:02PM
Love it! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #581 11:05PM
Lovely. But your grandfather's name was Isabelle?! - 559MickeyLover  320.6 #756 11:15PM
Yep...Isabel... they called him Ray...I know odd...and my Nana's name is Refugio...its like they should of had each other's names lol. Then i also thought of Mary-Belle...Mary after my Mother.... - bellerie  22.2 #6608 11:20PM
I call my son Dopey...... Does that count? - NascarDave  313.9 #786 11:18PM

I think I might have inspired a Disney name. :) - PrincessTiannaBeignet  325.1 #729 12:33AM
My niece's favorite movie of all time is Sleeping Beauty. She decided when she was about 10 that she would name her daughter Aurora. That was about 15 years ago. Our Aurora will be 1 this month! - GrandCircleTour  343.5 #658 1:19AM
I work as a nurse in the maternity ward and one of my patients named their daughter Snow White!! And I'm not kidding. - erinten  539.9 #367 5:52AM

I knew a girl in high school named Diamond and her last name was Ring. Then we also had a Rusty Nail. Go figure. Crazy parents. Then my sister named her 3 kids Dallas, Dakota, and Cheyenne. - Sharkgrrl19  248.8 #1323 7:05AM
I always wanted to marry a man with the last name Lee and name our child Brock. - aidensmama  340.3 #669 9:34AM

I named my little girl Ariella I love it it's unique enough for me - Minniemouse626  156.0 #2574 10:36AM
My mother named me Tiana, I have always loved it because it means princess. Plus I never really cared for mugs or keychains, I just usually bought the one that said princess! - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1676 10:54AM
So your MW name is really "Princess Princess?" lol. HI! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  746.0 #242 10:01PM
My name and my husband's name are both from Peter Pan coincidentally. - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 10:09PM

Ha! Kshea970! ABC, interesting. And, it good to know that not everyone feels bad about not seeing their name on a key chain! I was concerned about that when naming our kids! I wondered if it mattered! Two of my kids don't have commonly spelled names, but they all told us they love their names, so we're happy!😊 - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #581 10:30PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of September 29, 2015
Mickey's Halloween Party has an interesting effect on crowd levels. This week, Disneyland will close early on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to host the party. Disneyland Park crowds are usually lighter on party days (with the exception of Friday). Last weekend was very busy, while this Monday was not. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Sep 29, 2015 11:33AM

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  558.8 #345 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7241 11:53PM
