    Smile Ornate Princess Names - Beyond Disney

    When I was a little girl, I stumbled across this gorgeous book of fairytales in a book exchange, that was located in a little, dated boutique shop. I was only four at the time and my Mum had let me pick a book to take home. The book I found was from the 60s/70s and was filled with gorgeous painted scenes of princesses, fairies etc. It's become a book that I still peruse through on rain days and admire the gorgeous illustrations by Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone. It also kind of got me away from the typical image of princesses and princes since the illustrations were so visually stunning. But what names fit with this idea inside my head?

    Here are some pictures:

    The Frog Prince

    Cinderella

    Beauty and The Beast

    Any ideas?

    Ronan: Spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous.

    For the Frog Prince I see names like Zelda, Lissie, Septa, Onelle for the princess; Oren, Huxley, Tern, Riese for the prince... a bit more off/fairy-like, just by the way the picture is.

    For Cinderella, Cherise, Linnea (LIN-ay-uh, right?), Ilsa, Kriste, or anything uncommon and French for Cinderella; Gregor, Jovan, Percival for the prince.

    For Beauty, Francesca, Maylin, Georgiana, Holly... I'm not sure, either long and classic or nature. Any pictures of Beast? I'm actually extremely interested in Beauty and the Beast right now, as I plan on trying to rewrite it when I have time.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Thank you for those suggestions! I love so many of them! Sure, that picture of Beauty is a close-up here's the full image
