My brother's name was Michael, but his wife called him Mickey a lot. He hated it.

My ex-girlfriends name is Bambi. After we broke up she started to date a guy named Mickey.

Oh, and she used to work at MK.

Not a person, but my cat, I named him Disney. If I had another child, a girl, her middle name would be Ariel. And truly I picked it because it's biblical...name means Lioness of G-d. BUT...yes, I know...everyone would think I picked it because of Little Mermaid and that's okay too.

I'm pondering naming a daughter "Aurora". She'snoy mt favorite Princess, but it's a nice name.

Snow White is my favorite Princess and I realize my name, Jennifer basically means Snow White:good vibes

I am a teacher so I come across all kinds of names. Last year I had an Ariel and a Tiana (spelled Tianna) in the same class. This year I have a Sebastian. Have taught 4 Jasmines. Jasmine and Ariel seem to be the most popular.

Forgot our neighbor's daughter's name is Joselyn Aurora. Her mom loved sleeping beauty growing up.

My son Dane is named after a character in the Thorn Birds (well not after the character or actor, I just loved the name!)
We know twins named Ariel and Aurora.

DH's middle name is Ariel In Hebrew it is a masculine name and is very popular for boys in Israel (Ariel Sharon, etc)

We tell him his name is why our daughter loves princesses so much.

His first name is just a simple American name. I guess he's lucky his parents named him that way. His sister just got one name. His parents were children of Holocaust survivors who made it to Peru with the goal of getting to the US eventually. They wanted their kids to have American names to make the transition easier. But then the Little Mermaid came out.

All things considered, it's just fine, but it's comical when I want to make him squirm in front of other people.

Taught the sweetest little girl a few years back "Blanca Nieves" which is Spanish for Snow White!!

Taught a few Ariels - including one boy named Ariel, it was hard to explain to his classmates that it can be a boy's name too!!

I've had a Jasmine and an Alice too!!

Not Disney-related, but I taught a little girl name "Millenia" cause she was born in the year 2000 for the Millenium!!
