My dad's name (God rest him!) was Roy and he and my mom named my younger brother Disney! Even if brother had ended up being a sister they would have named her "Disney" also.

Diz has autism and introduces himself to everyone he meets, so when we go to the World the cast members get the biggest grins on their faces! He loves being there and seeing his name on so many things

I work with a Merida. She is in her 30's though, so not officially named after the character. She said her mom had a friend named Merida growing up, and she just liked the name. I know when I met her, it was the first time I had heard the name.

I know a lot of girls named after princesses. I know they aren't people but I have a dog named Zero (Nightmare Before Christmas) and a cat named Isabella (Phineas and Ferb).

I wanted to name my son (now 17) Christopher Robin, but my husband would have nothing to do with it. I still talk about being over-ridden on this!!

BF loves the name Isabelle and it has grown on me so when we have a daughter, her name will be Isabelle and I'll nickname her Belle (so originally we had no Disney thought, but hey, I like the ring of "Belle".

I met the new waitress at the local coffee shop we frequent. My husband was teasing her calling her ariel( she had red hair), then he apologized and asked her name. It was Tiana! I just thought that was very funny that she was still a princess after all.
She didn't catch on. I guess she was just not a Disney fan?

I had an orange hamster growing up named Raja, and one of our cats is named Flower, but that's after the Pittsburgh Penguins goalie. But you can call her Flower if you like. She doesn't mind.

my DBF and I really like the name Elias. He's trying to push Harrison Indiana. I've consented to Harrison, but he's still working on the other half of that...

My daughter is named Sidney. I always tell her it's spelled that way (instead of Sydney) because when you move the letters around it spells Disney.

It's not true. I wasn't a Disney nut until after her birth. But, she thinks it's cool and shares that story with people.

Haha. That made me laugh. Singing couple of the mid 70s, early 80s. Their most famous song, "Love Will Keep Us Together." They were originally backup musicians for Elton John and Neil Sedaka.

Well, people say I'm Goofy and have a Mickey Mouse job. I Duck as much work as I can, because I get a Minnie paycheck. I walk around in a Daze-ey most of the time, I get Tangled in the phone (usually when I Tinker with the Bell), and I'm not very Brave. The boss calls me Dumbo or Sleeping Beauty and can't get me Up. My Secretariat thinks I'm a little Malificent, I'm usually Grumpy, always Dopey, often Sneezy, sometimes Sleepy, rarely Happy, but never Bashful.

Incredibles as it may sound, though, my record is Snow White. All my diplomas are Up on my Wall-e, and I used to do a little office decorating - The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, but that's about it.

My wife used to call me the Love Bug, but now she calls me Brother Bear. The neighbors call us Lady and the Tramp. The kids think I'm the Absent-Minded Professor.

Does that count?
