You know how there are those people out there who just have a name that perfectly suits them? No one's fictional parents were better at naming their children than those of the Disney Princess.
The 21-year-old Australian Disney fan, known simply as Jack
, has created an album with images of some of the Disney Princesses paired with the origin and meaning behind their names. For the most part, these ladies were each named with a careful image in mind. For others, not so much.
As someone who spent most of her formative years cleaning up after her stepmother and sisters, Little Ashes seems fairly appropriate.
2. Sleeping Beauty
Sure, she was light, bright, and as gorgeous as the twilight before sunrise. She also definitely seems like the type that likes to wake up really early to get a good start on the day. That is, as long as she's not under a magical spell that keeps her asleep.
3. The Little Mermaid
Ariel means "Lion of God" in Hebrew, but another connection can be made to Shakespeare.
Ariel was also the name of a sprite in Shakespeare's The Tempest. In The Tempest, Ariel is rescued by Prospero, a magician, and is forced to serve him. Sounds a bit like Ariel's relationship with Ursula.
4. Beauty and the Beast
Well this needs no explanation. Belle was beautiful, brainy, and wasn't one to be fooled by good looks alone. Sorry, Gaston.
