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.
Oswald was the protagonist of twenty-six silent cartoons made by Walt Disney in the 1920’s. After losing his rights to Oswald, Disney came up with his biggest winner-- Mickey Mouse. If Oswald feels too buttoned up, just think about the wild and goofy nickname Ozzy (which is not the birth name of Mr Osbourne).
