Whether you’re trying to name a dog, cat, or baby, you can find plenty of inspiration from Disney character names. Just going through the Disney+ catalog can give you countless ideas.
Between Disney animation, Pixar animation studios, Disney live-action, and the huge list of properties Disney’s collected (Star Wars, Marvel), you’d be hard-pressed not to find a name you like.
Here are some of the best Disney character names out there.
Disney Character Names for Dogs
If you’re a Disney fan, one of the best ways to remember your favorite movies is naming a pet after a great character. There’s no shortage of names to consider.
You could go with something unique, where people will instantly know where the name came from. Or you could go with something more commonplace to make the homage more subtle. For example, if you named a dog Ellie, people wouldn’t immediately know you named her after the Disney movie Up.
Here are some great dog names that aren’t necessarily dogs themselves.
Chip (Beauty and the Beast)
Gaston (Beauty and the Beast)
LeFou (Beauty and the Beast)
Baymax (Big Hero 6)
Mochi (Big Hero 6)
Mochi was originally a cat, but it makes a great dog name as well!
Choosing a name from Hercules is also a great idea if you love mythology!
Thackery (Hocus Pocus)
Again, originally a cat, but it also works for a dog!
Hei Hei (Moana)
Who didn’t love the cheeky raccoon from Pocahontas?
Namaari (Raya and the Last Dragon)
On the list of animal sidekicks, Pascal certainly tops the list as one of the sassiest.
Dutchess (The Aristocats)
Kronk (The Emperor’s New Groove)
Pacha (The Emperor’s New Groove)
Yzma (The Emperor’s New Groove)
Basil (The Great Mouse Detective)
Baloo (The Jungle Book)
Pumbaa (The Lion King)
Ursula (The Little Mermaid)
Beaker (The Muppets)
Rizzo (The Muppets)
Archimedes (The Sword and the Stone)
Eeyore (Winnie the Pooh)
Names of Disney Dogs
Disney has no shortage of dogs in their movies. If you want to specifically name your dog after a Disney dog, not just a Disney character, here’s a list to choose from.
Pongo (101 Dalmatians)
Perdita (101 Dalmatians)
Lucky (101 Dalmatians)
Patch (101 Dalmatians)
But we don’t talk about Bruno…
Chief (Fox and the Hound)
Copper (Fox and the Hound)
Lady (Lady and the Tramp)
Tramp (Lady and the Tramp)
Fifi (Mickey Mouse Universe)
Fifi is Minnie’s spoiled pup. Pluto loves her, but she doesn’t always give him the time of day.
Goofy (Mickey Mouse Universe)
Max (Mickey Mouse Universe)
Pluto (Mickey Mouse Universe)
Dodger (Oliver & Company)
Francis (Oliver & Company)
Georgette (Oliver & Company)
Tito (Oliver & Company)
Nana (Peter Pan)
Lafayette (The Aristocats) Also, a great choice if you’re a Hamilton fan!
Zero (The Nightmare Before Christmas)
Disney Princess Names
According to Disney, there are 12 official Disney princesses, 14 if you include Anna and Elsa. Raya has not yet been officially inducted, but we’ve included her here because we don’t think it’ll be long before she gets added.
Here are the names of all the Disney princesses.
Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)
Snow White (Snow White)
Raya (Raya and the Last Dragon)
Ariel (The Little Mermaid)
Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)
Disney Prince Names
Whether through lineage or marriage, these characters became the official Disney princes.
And villains like Prince Hans? They don’t make the official cut. While a Disney princess doesn’t need a prince (looking at you, Elsa, Merida, Moana, and Raya), there are no Disney princes without a prince.
Adam/Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
Li Shang (Mulan)
John Smith (Pocahontas)
Phillip (Sleeping Beauty)
Florian (Snow White)
Flynn Rider (Tangled)
A great name together, or two great names separately!
Eric (The Little Mermaid)
Naveen (The Princess and the Frog)
Female Disney Character Names
There are plenty of female Disney characters apart from the core princesses. Here are some of the best Disney character names for girls.
Dot (A Bug’s Life)
Rosie (A Bug’s Life)
Roxanne (A Goofy Movie)
Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Audrey (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)
Kida (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)
Kida should have a place alongside the Disney princesses, but Atlantis didn’t perform well enough in the box office for her to get the designation.
Honey (Big Hero 6)
Abby (Chicken Little)
Encanto is filled with excellent Disney character names to inspire you!
Darla (Finding Nemo)
Dory (Finding Nemo)
