Disney Baby Names
It’s no wonder little girls love Belle from “Beauty and the Beast”—she is smart (always reading a book) and kind and longs for adventure. One day while trying to find her lost father in the woods, the brave girl makes a deal with the evil Beast, who’d kidnapped the elderly man: Free my father, she tells him, and take me instead. Though she’s afraid of him, Belle's strength lets her stand her ground, and she refuses to give in to his demands—until he risks his life to save hers. Suddenly Belle sees the Beast in a new light and thinks, “Hmmm, maybe.” Little does she know what handsome goodness lurks under that hairy, scary bod.
