Snow White ___________________________

In the beginning of the Grimm's Tale Schneewittchen, Snow White's mother pricks her finger with a sewing needle and three drops of her blood fall onto the snow which lay on the ebony windowsill. Oddly enough, this made her long for a daughter of a similar color scheme. While this reflects the arc of the story: (white)innocence, (red)maturity & love, and (black)death, her name particularly represents a season when the world metaphorically sleeps only to be inevitably awakened with the coming of spring.

_______________________________ Cinderella

Omitted from the 디즈니 version of the fairytale, 신데렐라 was actually the cruel nickname given to her 의해 her stepsisters for sitting at the dying cinders of the 불, 화재 after her long days work. Cinderella's real name is never mentioned. Cinders have a number of symbolic meanings from being merely a 출처 of warmth and a hidden 불, 화재 to represent rebirth in the story of the Firebird 또는 Phoenix. In myth, the creature would die in the fiery blaze of its nest only to rise again reborn from the ashes signifying a rise to glory from the lowest of places.

Aurora ________________________________

Latin for "light" 또는 "dawn", Aurora is her royal name given 의해 her parents. It may be stated in the film that this was "because she filled their lives with sunshine" but its also fitting for this princess since dawn is the time when the sleeping world awakes. It's no accident that she falls asleep at dusk and awakes upon sunrise. Incidentally one may recall her "hair of sunshine gold" but her "lips that shame the red red rose" are 더 많이 linked to her 초 name.

Briar Rose ________________________________

Briar Rose, a pseudonymn given 의해 her fairy godmothers also has poetic meaning. The first word BRIAR, a mass of thorny plants obviously makes sense with the story's motif but a rose also has numerous conotations. 장미 have represented love, beauty, virtue, femininity, and virginity hence why it is also a symbol of the Virgin Mary. But a briar rose is a thing of beauty surrounded 의해 harsh thorny bramble -- much like Aurora herself in the 성 surrounded 의해 the forest of thorns.

__________________________________ Ariel

Ariel's name probably has the most mysterious of origins but there are two possible sources that equally make sense. Song writers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (both of Jewish heritage) had a surprising amount of creative input in the story having named several of Ariel's sisters. This could leave reason to suspect they may have also suggested the name Ariel, Hebrew for "Lion of God". Lions are well known symbols of strength and courage.

The 초 possibility which actually ties into the first is the connection to the word 'ARIA'. Hebrew for "lioness". However in Italian it means "air" and is a musical term for a solo vocal piece with a light instrumental accompaniment. This probably makes the most sense considering music, and not lions, is the most obvious if not significant factor in Ariel's story.

Belle ________________________________

The most straight 앞으로 of names, Belle is literally French for "beauty". Granted this makes sense since Belle's character is meant be physically attractive. However beauty is not just restricted to our visual sense but can encompass all the senses and even that of our spirit. Intended to contrast the physical ugliness of the beast, Belle's purpose in the story is ultimately to transform the beast's soul to match the beauty of her own. She is everything the beast must aspire to be.

________________________________ Jasmine

Most people assume 재스민 속, 재 스민 is merely a reference to the 재스민 속, 재 스민 꽃 and to a certain degree it is. 재스민 속, 재 스민 is actually indigenous to the Middle East. Known as "yasmine" to the natives, the 꽃 is so pleasantly fragrant that the name translates to "gift from God" in Arabic. In the western world it can represent sensuality, elegance, and modesty -- a particular virtue 알라딘 또는 Ali Ababwa must obtain to win the 심장 of the princess.

Pocahontas _________________________

Pocahontas is unique being that she is the only 디즈니 Princess whom we know actually existed. Historically she is known 의해 three separate names. Powhattan for "little mischief", Pocahontas was actually a nickname given to her because of her precocious and playful nature. Her real name was Matoaka 또는 "bright stream between the hills". This can easily be linked to her affinity for rivers in the film. Her third name Rebecca, which she adopted after being baptized, is Hebrew for "to bind 또는 bring together" and this is exactly what she did for her people and the Jamestown settlers.

___________________________________ Mulan

The story of 뮬란 is not a fairytale but a legend potentially based on real events of a woman named Hua Mulan which literally translates to "flower wood orchid", 또는 the magnolia. Magnolias are a symbol of perseverance and nobility. The film makes reference to this in the scene when 뮬란 and her father sit beneath the 목련 tree. Her father subtly parallels his daughter to a late 목련 [mulan] blossom and how it will one 일 be the most beautiful of all.

Tiana ___________________________________

Potentially derived from the Greek word 'TIANI' meaning "princess", being a 인기 name among African-Americans it may be fitting that the first black 디즈니 Princess was named Tiana. However this was not her first name choice. Originally her name was Maddy but was deemed too racially insensitive. This is odd since Maddy is short for Madeline derived from Magdeline. Mary Magdeline was a friend of 예수님 and only disciple strong enough to witness his crucifixion and the first to witness his resurrection -- a woman who went on a long journey and acheived a great spiritual transformation.

_______________________________ Rapunzel

Also known as "rampion" 또는 "bellflower", rapunzel is an edible plant. In the Grimm's Tale, it was specifically this plant that a poor man 스톨, 훔친 from a witch's garden to feed his pregnant wife. As punishment, the witch took the poor couple's daughter and raised her away in a tower without any doors 또는 stairs. This plant is not only beautiful but is also noted for its ability to grow in very inhospitable soils. Rapunzel is very much like her namesake plant in that she too flourishes in beauty, kindness and curiosity despite being locked away in a cruel world. (she will also be the first 디즈니 Princess who's main color is purple.)

But Daddy - just one more cream-coated yoghurt raisin sponge cake... PLEASE?
This idea sort of hit me in the face whilst I was doodling in the back of my French book on Tuesday when I should have been doing a listening exercise about someone wanting to be a doctor. What if Ariel didn't want our world for our 정크 and our legs but our marvellous food? That underwater stuff must be dead gross.
I actually started 글쓰기 this around a doodle of fat Ariel, but yeah. My French book's at school so improvisation time!

Basically, fat Ariel has gained a lot of weight recently and her father has forbidden her from eating any 더 많이 of this awful barbaric human junk. He's put her...

10.The Chinese Recruits vs. Themselves
What can be said? This is a hilarious battle that poor 뮬란 started that resulted in a big pile up at the end. But it's not a serious battle, nor is it significant to the movie in any way. It's just a fun little fight.

"Hilarious, but not really significant. :P" (aiemerrysirius)

"This is pure silliness." (tigerranma)

So, we did this countdown a while ago, but I’ve wanted to write my personal opinions on it, and the 기사 I’ve written since just seemed to fit with the timing better, so this one kept getting pushed back. Sorry about that! However, if my 글쓰기 this late keeps the conversation going, I’m glad I kept pushing it back!
Warning: Tiana’s section contains a LONG rant.

10. Aurora
Aurora doesn’t really do much in her movie, heck, she isn’t even really the protagonist. This film isn’t really about what Aurora does but 더 많이 what happens to Aurora. Aurora sets very little of the film in...

Here are the results about positions 31-40 of the 디즈니 Princess Sequel Outfit Countdown, voted 의해 public.

40. Aurora: Yellow 겉옷, 가운 (Disney Princess: 마법에 걸린 사랑 Tales – Follow Your Dreams)

I hoped it should have been higher. The 디자인 isn't so bad, except the puffy sleeves. Maybe the yellow doesn't suit her hair? I don't know, I can't be unbiased about Aurora. She looks awesome to me, whatever she wears.
 Position #40 Aurora's Yellow 겉옷, 가운
Position #40 Aurora's Yellow Gown

It doesn't go with her hair at all and even if it were a different color it would still be ugly! - DsnyPrincess

[...] I kind of like Aurora's yellow dress....
