    Names from Disneyland, Paris, and Disneyland Paris

    So. This is going to require a lot of background.

    I go to a university located very, very close to Disneyland (lucky me, I know.) Practically everyone has a pass, so it's kind of a normal thing to go there with friends and just hang around, ride rides, stalk celebrities who've been spotted in the park that day, etc. It's so convenient that I've even gone there just because a friend was craving hot chocolate from the Ghirardelli store in the park. One of my favorite things to do there is, of course, name-watch. All the employees (sorry, "cast members") have name tags, and guests get special buttons with their name on them on their birthdays, so names are a lot more visible in Disneyland than they usually are.

    Last month, I happened to visit Paris with my extended family (my scientist grandfather was presenting at a conference and the rest of us just tagged along) and did lots of name-watching there, too. One of my cousins, who works at Disney World, was able to get us into Disneyland Paris for free, so even more name-watching happened.

    Anyway, I've had these lists floating around on my phone for a while, and figure I may as well show them off here on Nameberry. I only recorded the most interesting ones (I felt no need to record all the Avas and Madisons) so there's a polarizing variety of names, from the cringe-worthy to the commendable. Note that the names from Paris and DLP aren't necessarily of French origin; just names I encountered in France.

    Agree, you are really lucky Disneyland is great and I have been to Disneyland Paris too.
