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.)
 One of my 가장 좋아하는 songs of all time.
One of my favorite songs of all time.
Disney's 겨울왕국 is receiving rave reviews,and the song"Let It Go"is one of the highlights of the film.Don't take my word for it-Wikipedia,as usual is great for such simple backround facts.I have decided that Elsa is my 가장 좋아하는 디즈니 character,but I'm having internal 토론 whether"Let It Go"is my 가장 좋아하는 디즈니 song-time will tell,but I'm leaning towards"yes".On my 구글 검색 history,there are queries such as "Let It Go is brilliant" and "Frozen Let It Go analysis",but having found nothing satisfactory,I've decided to write this post instead.
There has been much written about Let It...

Awhile ago, linkabout which Houses the Princesses would be in, and several of 당신 requested that I do one about the princes as well. I’m pleased to announce that this is it!

But before I begin my analyses, it’s time for some disclaimers…

1. About the Houses. Here’s how I tend to think of the Houses of Hogwarts. (Note: I will be saying the most about Slytherin, since Slytherin is most often distorted.)

Gryffindor: values bravery, daring, bold decision-making, rule-breaking, following one’s dreams, standing up for one’s friends, and being 사무용 겉옷, 전반적인 “fun”/pleasant/courageous.

Alright, this is going to contain critical and possibly controversial opinions about 겨울왕국 and Tangled, as well as other things, so if 당신 can't stand to hear these 영화 badmouthed I'd suggest that 당신 skip this article. Now that you've been suitably warned, on with the article!


The first that 당신 see of new 디즈니 characters is almost always through promotional rendered images, so that's where we are going to start in this dissection of Disney's character design.

To begin, let's look at some of the earlier promotional art of Elsa and Anna:...

My opinions on Rapunzel have changed a lot. When I joined Fanpop, she was 초 on my list. Eventually she moved up to first. After that, she made a bunch of drops, until she eventually reached the eleventh spot on my list. So I've gone from loving her to death to disliking her. Oh, well. I might as well explain why I dislike her then.

I dislike Rapunzel mostly because she's an overdone character and I feel like she's shoved onto me a lot as a character. You're supposed to see her as this amazing character who is easily relatable because of how she has many hobbies, and well rounded,...

 Why don't they sell princess dresses like these? I'd buy the heck out of these!
Why don't they sell princess dresses like these? I'd buy the heck out of these!
Since it's Veteran's Day, I thought I'd use some rare time off to write an article. The only 기사 idea I could think of that wouldn't take all 일 to research and explore would be a list of princess "peasant" dresses rated in order from the ones I like least to the one I'm seriously considering commissioning my Ren Faire 프렌즈 to sew for me.

Most people seem to 사랑 the princesses' fancy, sparkly, poofy ballgowns, 또는 their iconic princess dresses. I personally was never a fan. I'm a real stickler for comfort and practicality. Ballgowns tend to be made with a material I find uncomfortable...

Okay, so a lot of people have been doing these, and I wanted to write a new 기사 before I finished my countdown of the smartest 디즈니 Princesses, so I'm going to be doing this. Anyways, keep in mind this is just my opinion. Enjoy the article! :)

11. Mulan

She may be my 가장 좋아하는 디즈니 Princess, but I am definitely not a 팬 of her design. In my opinion, her face is completely changed, it's made sort of chubby, with 더 많이 rosy cheeks. Her hair looks different, and I do like the outfit, but I don't think it 슈츠 her, I don't think her appearance is unappealing to look at 또는 anything,...

13. Snow White
Snow would definitely be higher on my list if her curls were 더 많이 defined. I like the idea of her hair styled in a bob with a red bow. Unfortunately, that idea didn't come out too nicely to me.

12. Cinderella
Strawberry blonde is my 가장 좋아하는 hair color and Cinderella's burnt 주황색, 오렌지 hair color is no doubt uniquely gorgeous. Speaking of unique, so are her bangs but I can't say I really like them as they look like plastic to me.

11. Tiana
The little strands of curls that hang down are pretty cute. Although it doesn't look like 당신 can do much with Tiana's hair but tie it...

저기요 guys! I've been meaning to write an 기사 about my 가장 좋아하는 Princess wardrobes for a while, but there were two major problems. The first problem was that I didn't know where to place them, and the 초 problem was pure freaking laziness. But, I finally decided to stop being lazy, get my crap together, and write the list. Sequels will not be included, which sadly means I won't be including my 가장 좋아하는 Rapunzel outfit, her wedding dress. And, oh yeah, Anna and Elsa will be included. Sue me. So, let's get started! *Note* Please excuse awful collages.

13. Ariel
I 사랑 Ariel, but honestly,...

When I 코멘트 on one pick and other 팬 wonder why I say so, it inspires me to make an 기사 to explain 더 많이 in the best way. I find a lot similarities of Elsa with Periwinkle (Secret of the Wings), Ralph and Vanellope (Wreck-it Ralph), Zarina (The Pirate Fairy), and Maleficent (Maleficent).

 John Lasseter's Blue and Spikey "White" Hair
John Lasseter's Blue and Spikey "White" Hair

Similarities between Periwinkle & Elsa:
- Both have ice power
- Both ice are spreading quickly like 불, 화재 (okay, not definitely Periwinkle's ice but ice from Periwinkle's place)
- Both have white hairs, 또는 whatever platinum blonde which looks...
