Disney Baby Names
Who can blame Ariel, the title character from “The Little Mermaid” who lives in the undersea world of Atlantica, for wanting to spread her wings (in her case, tail) and interact with humans above the sea’s surface? The headstrong, inquisitive princess—her dad is Atlantica’s king—spends much of her time dreaming about humans and a life away from home, much to her parents’ dismay. When she meets a real prince, Ariel must choose between honoring her heritage and listening to her heart.
