I love a good baby name. Even before I am pregnant, I love to search out the most perfect names. There are many places to pull inspiration from; I like looking at our family tree and our history for common names and unusual ones, and I like to check out the popular names to make sure I stay away from those.

I also like to check out movies and classic stories to see if I can find that perfect name, and Disney has a lot to pull from. With all the movies they’ve put out and some pretty fun and memorable stories, there are some great baby names to pick from.
