    Too Disney?

    I’d love to hear some thoughts on Ariel.

    I really like the Hebrew heritage, I think it’s short, strong, and intellectual-sounding... but then there’s the Little Mermaid.

    Is that still going to be people’s first response on hearing it? The film came out in 1989! Does the Disney connotation overwhelm any others, and how bad is the Disney-factor anyway? Would it be a deal-breaker for you?

    Im 23 and I still hate the movie, always had, which is why I hate that name itself.

    Also it sounds too girly.

    It's time to reclaim Ariel! I know a strong and intellectual woman named Ariel and I say go for it. It's a great name.

    It's not too Disney at all! I know several Ariels and it's never the first thing to cross my mind. It's sooo pretty and underappreciated!

    Initially, yes, I would think of the Little Mermaid. But just in these two minutes I took to read Nameberry's description of the name, etc. I am already falling in love with the sound and meaning of it. The Little Mermaid reference doesn't seem overwhelming at all and I assume that's how many, if not most, people will feel as well.
