Dwayne Johnson and Lauren Hashian
Dwayne Johnson has a connection with Disney through highly successful animated film Moana. But, it is also more than that. He named two of his daughter’s after Disney’s princesses. The first one is Jasmine Lia. The second one, which came to this world just days ago got the name, Tiana Gia, after the princess from Disney’s Princess And The Frog. Worry not, Johnson isn’t the only one giving names to his children based on Disney’s movies. Here is a list of Hollywood stars who named their children after Disney’s characters.
Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson
In October of 2014, this pair got their first child and named her Briar Rose. This is the second name of Princess Aurora from Maleficent given to her by fairies.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Their second daughter was born in June 2016. Violet was popular before Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles hit the theaters, but after this film, the popularity of this name skyrocketed.
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz
Jungle Book written by Rudyard Kipling was known long before Disney made the film, and the name Mowgli was first heard there. It never reached the popularity of some other names from Disney world, but we need to say that there are people who are naming their children after this character. Simpson and Wentz got their baby boy in 2008 and named him Bronx Mowgli.
Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry
Aubry and Berry are no longer together, but while they were, they decided to give their child name Nahla Ariela, and she is ten years old now. Nahla is a female character from The Lion King.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
For their oldest daughter name, they picked Esmeralda from Disney’s 1966 hit The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Ryan and Eva are both fans of the animated film and the Victor Hugo novel, so it wasn’t hard for them to decide on this name.
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
This super couple isn’t immune to the trend of giving names after Disney’s characters. Their choice was Eugene Fitzherbert. Luckily for their baby boy, he goes under the name Flynn Rider. This character from Tangled was the reason Kerr and Bloom named their son Flynn Bloom.
