11 Names Inspired by Disney Mothers

We are huge Disney movie lovers in our family. Now that my girls are a little bit older and can actually sit through a movie, we watch them often. Disney movies are filled with so many unique and pretty names that I have fallen in love with.

With Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought I would honor some of the mothers in these Disney films that we all love. Check out some of my favorite names of the mother characters in Disney films.
