Here are some other Pixar name possibilities–though with not a princess among them:

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:











The new Toy Story 3 has, I believe, something like 67 production babies cited–but for those, you’re on your own, at least till the DVD comes out.
