This Mom Named Her Daughter 'Disney' (And She Doesn't Care What Anyone Thinks About It)

A mom in the UK has opted for an out of the ordinary name for her daughter and has received mixed reactions after revealing the unique name online.

It might not feel like it if you have never been faced with the decision before, but choosing the name of your baby is one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make. Your sons and daughters will have to live with that name for the rest of their lives. Well, or until they reach an age where they can legally change it if you have named them something terrible enough for them to feel the need to do that.

The fact of the matter is that baby names tend to go in and out of fashion. That can depend on a lot of things such as popular TV shows, the latest movie releases, and just older names, in general, coming back into fashion. That's all well and good, but again, you need to think long and hard about what you're going to name your baby before you make that final decision.


Any name that is considered out of the ordinary is going to be met with mixed reviews when it first enters circulation. That's why a mom in Somerset, England has been receiving a fair amount of stick for naming her daughter Disney. Jade and Joshua Jeanes love Disney movies, as pretty much all of us do, and considered naming their daughter Belle after the character from Beauty and the Beast. However, they eventually settled on the name Disney instead.

Once Disney was born, Jade shared her new daughter's unique name on one of the many parenting groups she had joined on Facebook. It was then that she discovered not everyone was as big a fan of the name as she and her husband are, reports Fox News. "There are ordinary names that people give that I don’t like, but I don’t tell them that they shouldn’t give those names," Jade explained after receiving backlash about baby Disney.

Although some of the comments were obviously pretty hurtful, Dinsey's parents have not been deterred by them. Jade and Joshua are big video game fans and admitted that the name Sonic is very much in play should they have any more children. Personally, we here at TheThings are big Disney fans and even bigger Sonic fans, so we quite like the idea of them being used as baby names.
