Today is Donald Duck’s birthday, so we thought we’d commemorate it by inviting a bunch of his oldest chums over to Nameberry to celebrate, characters like Mickey and Goofy and Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar. And though these cartoon creatures may not be the most appropriate of namesakes, their names are still worth considering.
Of course the party wouldn’t be complete without Donald’s girlfriend, Daisy. She was first known as Donna Duck when she appeared in the 1937 cartoon Don Donald, making her name change in the 1940 Mr. Duck Steps Out. Her name was one of the first flower names to re-bloom and still hasn’t wilted, now at Number 166.
