If There Are Disney Princesses, Are There Also Official Disney Princes?

Yes. All the Disney princesses, except Merida (“Brave”) have love interests that are also considered official Disney princes.

  • Prince Phillip (also called Prince Charming) for Aurora in “Sleeping Beauty
  • Prince Charming (also called Prince Henry) for Cinderella

  • The Beast (also called Prince Adam) for Belle in “Beauty and the Beast
  • Aladdin for Princess Jasmine in “Aladdin”; he wasn’t born a prince but considered a Disney prince because of his princess love interest
  • Flynn Rider for Rapunzel in “Tangled”; also not a prince
  • John Smith for Pocahontas; also not a prince
  • Captain Li Shang for Mulan; also not a prince


Are There ‘Ugly’ Disney Boy Names I Should Avoid?

Some names might be considered unpopular as boy names but may be favorite or recognizable Disney characters. Aside from the villains listed above (but they make adorable cat or dog names), here are other names you might consider avoiding for your baby:

  • Dumbo – Flying elephant in “Dumbo,” but the name can subject your child to bullying because of its close spelling with “dumb”
  • Hades – Badass boy name after a character in “Hercules” but is also the Greek god of the underworld and death


Tips For Choosing Disney Boy Names

  • Consider the name meaning, spelling, and pronunciation,
  • Consider using spelling or language variations for a unique boy name (such as the Spanish boy name “Juan” for “John” or the Hispanic boy name “Santiago” for “James”).
  • Consider the characters they’re strongly associated with (for example, “John” is still considered a “good” name and associated with heroes like Captain John Smith in “Pocahontas” even if it was also used for lesser-known villains such as Prince John in “Robin Hood”).
  • Check for resulting initials with your baby’s first, middle, and last name to avoid funny or embarrassing results like “FAT,” ‘LIE,” or possible rude words.
