Obviously, baby name trends come and go — but if we do say so ourselves, Disney names always remain magical! If you’re thinking of giving your baby a Disney-inspired name but don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered. Here are 15 Disney character names that are poised to skyrocket (or are already trending upward).

From Kate Middleton’s third pregnancy to Prince Harry’s engagement, updates about the English royal family continue to dominate our newsfeeds. So, we wouldn’t be surprised if that inspires some people to give their baby names the “royal” treatment! These Disney characters happen to also be the names of real-life royals, past and present.

Alice — Alice in Wonderland

Arthur — The Sword in the Stone

George — Peter Pan

Elizabeth — Pirates of the Caribbean

Henry — The Princess and the Frog

No doubt, Disney’s huge film releases last year will influence baby name trends. (Remember how Elsa spiked right after Frozen first came out?) Here are a few other popular character names that we expect to start rising to the top, based on recent movie favorites.

Coco — Coco

Kylo — The Last Jedi
