    Question It's twisted

    I'm desperately in need of a name. My latest novel attempt is a twist on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with government spies and secret police involved... but anyway, I don't want to bore you with the complex plot. I don't want the story to be entirely recognizable as Snow White, but I need to change the names. Can you think of names which have the same meaning as/translated into a different language/sound similar/have some connection with the actual names in the story? If it has some unusual connection, please tell me what! I would like new names for these characters:
    Snow White
    The seven dwarfs (as many as you can!)
    The evil queen
    Snow White's prince, who is evil.
    Thank you!
