33 Unexpected Disney-Inspired Baby Names for Boys

While Disney inspires some pretty cute name options for girls, I must say that the Disney boy names? They have my heart.

Pretty sure I’ve added a few of the names from this list to my “potential future baby boy” names list. There are some seriously cool Disney boy names… especially the Disney villains!

Here are 33 Disney inspired baby names for boys that are definitely off the beaten path.

1. Arrow
I ADORE the name Arrow through and through. It is the name of Captain Amelia’s right-hand man in the movie “Treasure Planet.”

2. Amos
Amos Slade was the name of the main antagonist from the movie “The Fox and the Hound,” but antagonist or not, I love this name for little boys! It was definitely on my short list when I was pregnant.


felix3. Felix
Felix is such a sweet name! It is also the moniker of Fix-It-Felix, Jr. – the fixer of all the Ralph wrecks in the movie “Wreck-It-Ralph.”

4. Dex
This name is a great option for parents looking for a short and strong name like Jack, but less common. Dex Barrington was one of the bears from the Disney movie “The Country Bears” based on “The Country Bear Jamboree” ride at Disneyland.

5. Fritz
Fritz Robinson is the uncle of Lewis in the movie “Meet the Robinsons.” The name has such a great ring to it!

6. Bartholomew
Bartholomew was one of the mice in Ratigan’s brood from the movie “The Great Mouse Detective” and I think it’s a rather nice name.

7. Duke
Duke is a nice, strong name. It is the name of a construction worker who wants to play in a jazz band in the Disney short, “Rhapsody In Blue.”

fenton8. Fenton
This Disney-inspired name is WAY off the beaten path, but Fenton Crackshell otherwise known as “Gizmo Duck” was a recurring character on the Disney TV series “Duck Tales” and “Darkwing Duck.”

9. Sullivan
Everyone knows where this Disney-inspired name came from: “James P. Sullivan reporting for duty!” – better known as Sulley from “Monsters Inc.”

10. Basil
Basil, the name of “The Great Mouse Detective,” might be a bit too out there as a first name for some folks, but I still think it’s a great one and if nothing else could be a fun middle name.

11. Gideon
I think the name Gideon is all at once cute and classic. A perfect name for a boy to grow into. It is also the name of the hiccuping cat side-kick to “Honest John” the fox in “Pinocchio.”

12. Billy
A simple and classic name that I think could definitely make a comeback. This name was inspired by Billy Boss – a cello-playing cat in “The Aristocats.”

13. Elliott
Elliott was the name of Pete’s lovable dragon in the movie “Pete’s Dragon” and while it has gotten more popular lately, I still think it’s a cute name.

14. Harrington
The Harringtons were some of the potential adopters of Lewis in “Meet the Robinsons.” I’m a sucker for last names as first names.

15. Blake
Blake, the name of the the comical pigeon in the movie “Bolt,” might make a great baby boy name choice.

16. Hawkins
I like this name because it reminds me of the “Sadie Hawkins dance,” but it is also the name of Jim Hawkins – the main character in the movie “Treasure Planet.”

17. Clayton
Clayton is the last name of the Disney villain John Clayton from the movie “Tarzan,” but I think his name makes an even better first name.

18. Apollo
If you are into Greek mythology AND Disney movies this name could be the perfect fit, as it was the name of Apollo the god of the sun in mythology and in the movie “Hercules.”

Evinrude_The-Rescuers-2-sq19. Evinrude
Evinrude was a helpful, little dragonfly in the movie “The Rescuers” and makes for a very uncommon name indeed.

20. Forrester
The last name of Penny Forrester in the movie “Bolt” and yet again…a great last name as a first name option.

21. Harvey
Harvey Fenner was one of two real estate agents who tries to sell Tiana a restaurant building in “The Princess and the Frog.” This name is a bit old, but I actually know a Harvey and can safely say that it definitely is a cute fit for the right child.

22. Henry
The other Fenner brother from “The Princess and the Frog.” And actually, now that I think about it… Fenner could be a really cute name too!

23. Hugo
I haven’t met any little ones named Hugo and I think this could be a great name to bring back. Hugo was the name of one of the three gargoyles in Disney’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

24. Jasper
Apparently all of the Disney antagonists have the coolest names! This name comes from Jasper Badun – one of Cruella De Vil’s goofy henchmen in “101 Dalmatians.”

25. Lafayette
I read a book once with a character named Lafayette and have loved it ever since. It also happens to be the name of one of the basset hounds in “The Aristocats.”

26. Lawrence
As Prince Naveen’s royal valet in “The Princess and the Frog,” I think this name has the perfect blend of regalness, but still maintains a down-to-earth feel.

27. Lewis
Lewis is a great classic, yet unique name. It is also a name shared with Lewis Robinson from the movie “Meet the Robinsons.”

maximus28. Maximus
Maximus is the name of Flynn Rider’s horse in “Tangled” and makes a great name on its own as well as having the option of using the nickname Max. A great name to grow into.

29. Nathaniel
The name of the queen’s henchman in the live-action Disney movie “Enchanted.” Seriously, I think I have a thing for antagonist names!

30. Otto
Otto is the name of the dog with a cane in Disney’s “Robin Hood.” I think it’s a positively quirky little boy name and I kind of love it.

31. Preston
Preston B. Whitmore was the financier for the expedition to Atlantis in Disney’s “Atlantis: The Lost Empire.”

32. Toby
Toby was the name of a little turtle in the movie “The Fox and the Hound” and has long been one of my little boy favorites.

33. Winston
An uncommon, but likable name. It was the name of Jenny’s butler in the movie “Oliver & Company.”
