Bonjour! I decided to create an artikulo that showed my opinion on the Disney Princesses' names. Names are things that I find interest in, and I haven't seen many artikulo likes these, so I thought I would have a go. I'm also adding the French version if there is one, just because I felt like it and I pag-ibig French. The pictures are there for no real reason, just as a visual break from all of the writing. Feel free to disagree with my opinions of course.
Cinderella's actual name is never mentioned in the film
I don't think this name sounds very nice (except the French version: Cendrillon, at least when it's pronounced with a French accent). I also didn't like it very much because it was used as an insult and I feel really sorry for Sinderella because of this.
Meaning - Little Ashes (Her stepsisters called her that because she would get cinders/ashes all over her from sleeping sa pamamagitan ng the fire, or cleaning the fireplace or something)
French Version (if there is one) - Cendrillon
Disney did a very good job with the symbolism associated with this name
Although it kind of sounds fun to say, I'm not very fond of this name either. I don't really know why, maybe because it's from a litsugas or something? An edible plant, anyway. I just don't really like this name very much.
Meaning - Unknown, but it's possibly related to the German word for "light purple flower." Interesting because she is born with the help of a bulaklak and she is the only Disney Princess to wear purple.
French Version (if there is one) - Raiponce
In the original story, Pocahontas was nor her original name
I think this name sounds quite majestic, and I believe it would sound nice in Pocahontas' culture, but I'm not really very fond of it either. The meaning of the name doesn't really reflect on her personality in my opinion; maybe in the original story but not the Disney character. Apparently her real name was Matoaka and she later changed it to Rebecca in the original story
Meaning - "Little Mischief"; I don't see her as mischievous, cheeky or rebellious a lot; but it probably reflects on the personality of the person in the original story
French Version - none
Notice the bulaklak in the picture?
I believe it to be unique and nice sounding, but nothing special, really. Well, not nothing special, all the names in this listahan are special, but I suppose the others are better.
Meaning - The name is Mandarin for Magnolia/wood orchard. So I believe it would sound nice in Mulan's culture. It's interesting as the bulaklak signifies one of the most beautiful mga panipi in Mulan that surrounds her: "The bulaklak that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all." Nice symbolism
French version - none
9. Snow White
White skin. Doesn't get much madami simple than that
Well, Snow's mother wished for a girl with hair as black as ebony, lips as red as blood and skin as white as snow, and that's what she got. Snow White's beautiful skin led to her name. I like this name and I think it's sweet, like Snow White is, but I see it as madami of a paglalarawan rather than a name, and probably something we would not see usually. But it's sweet and nice.
Meaning - Snow white skin I guess.
French Version - Blanche Neige (basically "white snow")
This name is commonly used and very pretty
I think Anna is a nice name. However I'm not exactly sure why Disney would choose that name for the character; it means "grace" or "favour". While this is a pretty name, I would prefer it if they chose a name that suited Anna's character better, like they did with most of the other characters. But pangkalahatang it is a nice name and very popular.
Meaning - Grace or favour
French Version - None
The only name to mean "Princess"
This name is very pretty and I know a few people named Tiana (though not the same spelling). It means "princess" which I suppose reflects on the story and the main character. I like this name but the others are madami special to me, I guess.
Meaning - Princess
French Version - None
Damn right, I'm a lion of God.
Ariel is a nice name, I liked it very much when I was a kid (as I named my guinea pig after her) and I like it now, though I probably wouldn't call my kid Ariel, (or my guinea pig for that matter.) But nevertheless it is pretty.
Meaning - Lion of God. Like Anna I wish Ariel's name reflected madami on her character, because I do not put Ariel the character and "Lion of God" together. Am I making sense?
French version - none
"True to your heart, you must be true to your heart," - I know, I know, wrong move
Elsa is a cool name (excuse the pun); very popular and originally used as a nickname/shortened name from Elizabeth. I've read somewhere that it means "truth" and "God is my vow" and I suppose it reflects on the character in some ways, as she tries to be true to herself. But I like the name and I think it bumagay her.
Meaning - Truth, God is my Vow
French Version - None
"Hair of sunshine gold" or something and "She'll walk with springtime wherever she goes"
I think the reason why Aurora was named Aurora was beautiful: "Yes, they named her after the dawn, because she filled their lives with sunshine." She is commonly associated with the golden sun, sunshine, and spring. I think her name bumagay her and it is a very pretty name in itself.
Meaning - Dawn, sunshine
French Version - Aurore 3. Merida
I actually really like Merida's name. I thought it was really cool. The meaning of the name definitely reflects on the character, which I really like, and it sounds majestic and does the character some justice. Nice choice, Disney!
Meaning - One who has achieved a high place of honour
French version - Mérida
Maybe I am from Persia, maybe not
Well it happens to be the name of my sister, so I suppose I have to like it. (Only kidding, I think it's a beautiful name, even if my sister wasn't called it.) It is after a flower, which I think is pretty and can be traced back to ancient Persia as it was used then. This might solve my mystery of trying to figure out where hasmin is from; I always thought it was Persia and maybe I'm right? hasmin is a very nice name and bumagay the character well.
Meaning - Persian bulaklak name
French version - none 1. Belle
Well what a surprise. My pag-ibig of French comes out on top. Belle is such a beautiful name (please excuse yet another pun) and I think it sounds really, really nice. It bumagay the character very well as it is French for "beautiful" and Belle is one of the most beautiful animated females in history, both inside and out. It is such a pretty name and if I had a daughter called Isabelle or something, which is a name I've been considering, I would definitely call her Belle for short.
Meaning - French word for "beautilful, beauty, etc"
French Version - Well, it is the French version
Well it's no wonder that her name means beauty I guess
Just in case anyone is interested, here is the meaning of my username and why I chose to use it.
Miss means, well, miss, and "casse-cou" is french (what a surprise) for "daredevil" or "adventurer." So basically my name means Miss Daredevil/Adventurer. I used it because I have been studying French for many years and absolutely adore the language and so I wanted to incorporate some French in there, and I also used it because it's the child version of myself coming out and I often wish I could be the adventurous characters I right about in my books. (I'm a writer, well, I enjoy Pagsulat and write in my spare time. I haven't published anything yet.) I often write about Disney-Princess style characters and adventurous ones especially.
So there you have it! I have done my research, but if I have got any of the names wrong then please correct me, but I think I have them right. Disagree with my placings but please do not right any mean/harsh/critical comments; only constructive criticism! Thank you so much for pagbaba and I hope it was entertaining and a little bit insightful or educational.
Merci et au revoir!
