Pixar Baby Names: Some animated choices
We’ve seen Disney names fly from the screen onto birth announcements—just think of Ariel after The Little Mermaid. But what about those in the Pixar pix, both pre- and post- their merger with Disney? Remy, for one, seems to be catching on despite being a rat. Here are some other Pixar name possibilities–though with not a princess among them:
ATTA — A Bug’s Life
CELIA — Monsters, Inc
COLETTE — Ratatouille
DOT — A Bug’s Life
EDNA — The Incredibles
ELLIE — Up!
FLO — Cars, Finding Nemo
GYPSY — A Bug’s Life
LIZZIE — Cars
MIRAGE — The Incredibles
ROSIE — A Bug’s Life
ROZ — Monsters, Inc
SALLY — Cars
VIOLET — The Incredibles
DASHIELL — The Incredibles
DJANGO — Ratatouille
EMILE — Ratatouille
FRANCIS — A Bug’s Life
GUSTEAU — Ratatouille
LALO — Ratatouille
LUCIUS — The Incredibles
LUIGI — Cars
RAMONE — Cars
RANDALL — Monsters, Inc
REMY — Ratatouille
RUSSELL — Up
And speaking of Pixar, have you ever stayed through to the end of the credits to see the list of Production Babies names—children born to people involved with that film during production (a practice now picked up in Disney animated movies)? There have been some wildly creative choices, including:

Flo was in both Cars and Finding Nemo… Just saying 😉

Thanks, rutina–I added Nemo.

All movie credits should have Production babies mentioned in them, people might actually watch them for that!
Violet and Ramone are my favourites from this list 🙂

As someone whose name was Arielle long before the movie came out, I humbly ask you prospective parents not to name your child after a cartoon, unless you think your child will enjoy a lifetime of being asked, approximately once a day, “Oh, like the Little Mermaid?”

There was an Ellie in UP!

Ellie is now included.

I love watching the credits, and Pixare credits are among my favorites – I love looking for twins especially. 🙂
Arielle, my coworker named her daughter Ariel after the movie, Footloose, but got the Little Mermaid all the time. Oh but then my brother-in-law was named Ren, and then the Ren and Stimpy cartoon came out, and it was hell on him. Sometimes you can prevent it, but other times, it’s up to the cartoon creators.
I do feel Carl (Up), Jack (Incredibles), Hannah (Toy Story), and Andy (Toy Story) and were overlooked, but they’re not exactly exotic names.

Remy has been one of my all-time favorite boys’ names since way before Ratatouille, so I was pretty bummed when it was used on a cartoon rat. 🙂
That being said, I am a huge fan of Pixar movies, and while I wouldn’t necessarily name a kid after an animated character, I give props to the writers of these awesome films for their name choices.

Ariel should’ve never been given to girls, for me it’s always be a boys name.
One Disney name I liked for boys was Zephyr

A few that I caught in the Toy Story 3 credits…
Reid (paired with another name I can’t remember…)
More to come…

I saw a Devarat in the TS3 credits – I’d love to know the story behind that one, but I’m assuming its cultural.
I also saw a Mickayela. *eye roll*
on June 28th, 2010 at 2:05 pm
Oh, and there was a Bonnie and a Daisy in the TS3!

I often as a kid wondered if and when there was going to be a major character with my name. As i got older, and realised just how many kids in school where namesd after disney characters (my best elementary school friends name was Christopher Robin) I actually felt lucky, as it was something else that made me unique.

I always thought Kessie (from a Winnie The Poo movie) was Cassie but they were just saying it wrong. haha
