Snow White ___________________________

In the beginning of the Grimm's Tale Schneewittchen, Snow White's mother pricks her finger with a sewing needle and three drops of her blood fall onto the snow which lay on the ebony windowsill. Oddly enough, this made her long for a daughter of a similar color scheme. While this reflects the arc of the story: (white)innocence, (red)maturity & love, and (black)death, her name particularly represents a season when the world metaphorically sleeps only to be inevitably awakened with the coming of spring.

_______________________________ Cinderella

Omitted from the ディズニー version of the fairytale, シンデレラ was actually the cruel nickname 与えられた to her によって her stepsisters for sitting at the dying cinders of the 火災, 火 after her long days work. Cinderella's real name is never mentioned. Cinders have a number of symbolic meanings from being merely a 情報源 of warmth and a hidden 火災, 火 to represent rebirth in the story of the Firebird または Phoenix. In myth, the creature would die in the fiery blaze of its nest only to rise again reborn from the ashes signifying a rise to glory from the lowest of places.

Aurora ________________________________

Latin for "light" または "dawn", Aurora is her royal name 与えられた によって her parents. It may be stated in the film that this was "because she filled their lives with sunshine" but its also fitting for this princess since dawn is the time when the sleeping world awakes. It's no accident that she falls asleep at dusk and awakes upon sunrise. Incidentally one may recall her "hair of sunshine gold" but her "lips that shame the red red rose" are もっと見る linked to her 秒 name.

Briar Rose ________________________________

Briar Rose, a pseudonymn 与えられた によって her fairy godmothers also has poetic meaning. The first word BRIAR, a mass of thorny plants obviously makes sense with the story's motif but a rose also has numerous conotations. バラ have represented love, beauty, virtue, femininity, and virginity hence why it is also a symbol of the Virgin Mary. But a briar rose is a thing of beauty surrounded によって harsh thorny bramble -- much like Aurora herself in the 城 surrounded によって the forest of thorns.

__________________________________ Ariel

Ariel's name probably has the most mysterious of origins but there are two possible sources that equally make sense. Song writers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (both of Jewish heritage) had a surprising amount of creative input in the story having named several of Ariel's sisters. This could leave reason to suspect they may have also suggested the name Ariel, Hebrew for "Lion of God". Lions are well known symbols of strength and courage.

The 秒 possibility which actually ties into the first is the connection to the word 'ARIA'. Hebrew for "lioness". However in Italian it means "air" and is a musical term for a solo vocal piece with a light instrumental accompaniment. This probably makes the most sense considering music, and not lions, is the most obvious if not significant factor in Ariel's story.

Belle ________________________________

The most straight フォワード, 前進, 楽しみにして of names, Belle is literally French for "beauty". Granted this makes sense since Belle's character is meant be physically attractive. However beauty is not just restricted to our visual sense but can encompass all the senses and even that of our spirit. Intended to contrast the physical ugliness of the beast, Belle's purpose in the story is ultimately to transform the beast's soul to match the beauty of her own. She is everything the beast must aspire to be.

________________________________ Jasmine

Most people assume ジャスミン is merely a reference to the ジャスミン 花 and to a certain degree it is. ジャスミン is actually indigenous to the Middle East. Known as "yasmine" to the natives, the 花 is so pleasantly fragrant that the name translates to "gift from God" in Arabic. In the western world it can represent sensuality, elegance, and modesty -- a particular virtue アラジン または Ali Ababwa must obtain to win the ハート, 心 of the princess.

Pocahontas _________________________

Pocahontas is unique being that she is the only ディズニー Princess whom we know actually existed. Historically she is known によって three separate names. Powhattan for "little mischief", Pocahontas was actually a nickname 与えられた to her because of her precocious and playful nature. Her real name was Matoaka または "bright stream between the hills". This can easily be linked to her affinity for rivers in the film. Her third name Rebecca, which she adopted after being baptized, is Hebrew for "to bind または bring together" and this is exactly what she did for her people and the Jamestown settlers.

___________________________________ Mulan

The story of ムーラン is not a fairytale but a legend potentially based on real events of a woman named Hua Mulan which literally translates to "flower wood orchid", または the magnolia. Magnolias are a symbol of perseverance and nobility. The film makes reference to this in the scene when ムーラン and her father sit beneath the モクレン, マグノリア tree. Her father subtly parallels his daughter to a late モクレン, マグノリア [mulan] blossom and how it will one 日 be the most beautiful of all.

Tiana ___________________________________

Potentially derived from the Greek word 'TIANI' meaning "princess", being a 人気 name among African-Americans it may be fitting that the first black ディズニー Princess was named Tiana. However this was not her first name choice. Originally her name was Maddy but was deemed too racially insensitive. This is odd since Maddy is short for Madeline derived from Magdeline. Mary Magdeline was a friend of ジーザス and only disciple strong enough to witness his crucifixion and the first to witness his resurrection -- a woman who went on a long journey and acheived a great spiritual transformation.

_______________________________ Rapunzel

Also known as "rampion" または "bellflower", rapunzel is an edible plant. In the Grimm's Tale, it was specifically this plant that a poor man ストール, 盗んだ from a witch's garden to feed his pregnant wife. As punishment, the witch took the poor couple's daughter and raised her away in a tower without any doors または stairs. This plant is not only beautiful but is also noted for its ability to grow in very inhospitable soils. Rapunzel is very much like her namesake plant in that she too flourishes in beauty, kindness and curiosity despite being locked away in a cruel world. (she will also be the first ディズニー Princess who's main color is purple.)

I’m a huge gymnastics nerd as well as a ディズニー nerd (obviously), and this was just something that’s been on my mind lately: who would each princess’s お気に入り 体操選手 be? I know a ton (or all) of あなた don’t follow gymnastics, so I added a couple of history notes and 動画 of each gymnast, though I know no one’s going to watch them all! If any of あなた does follow gymnastics または just check out the videos, do あなた agree with me, または would あなた pick someone else? Though I will accept no argument on Merida.

Snow White’s Favorite: Olga Korbut
Known for: basically inventing gymnastics
Why she’d...

Please note that this is a countdown where we users make a lot of assumptions and don't provide proof of anything. This is for the amusement so please don't kill the fun :)

11. Prince
The Prince from Snow White comes in last place, can't say I'm stunned. At that time, ディズニー animators haven't mastered drawing male characters yet so I'm guessing what's underneath isn't HD quality either. He's also quite feminine looking, petite frame with soft edges. No worries though, Snow White loves his man for his huuuuuuuge ハート, 心 :)

10. Charming
Nope, still not quite there with drawing men. Charming...

I have exams in a couple of weeks and I've been shirking my studies long enough but I thought I'd just put out an 記事 as a last hurrah. Basically this how the princesses would get along as a group. I once did 上, ページのトップへ 20 DP friendship pairs, you're encouraged to go 検索 for it :) But no 一覧 format here, this a Quickie Article. No pictures and not really structured, like the one I did for what I dislike about each princess. This time however Merida, Anna and Elsa will be included.

Snow White
She'd be the ring leader of the group in my opinion. She possesses leadership qualities without being...

Inspired によって Kataralover's video; link I decided to type up a little thing. To be honest I'm rather surprised to type this one as I actually don't really care for Cinderella. However I don't really agree with a lot of the reasons for her character being hated. I guess あなた can say that I don't hate Cindy, I don't even dislike her...I just like the other princesses better. The reason I don't care for her centers around the fact that I find her movie boring and therefore can't find her character as fun--hopefully Helena Bonham Carter can spark life into her movie. Anyhow I'm kind of getting off...

Since first of all it's DP Couples 月 and 秒 Valentine's 日 is coming up in just 3 days so I felt like 書く an 記事 about my お気に入り DP Couples, hope you'll like it

11. ムーラン & Shang

I would've liked these two much もっと見る if they showed もっと見る clearly that they're a couple and not just best friends, basically the sequel is in that way better, there I can see that ムーラン & Shang are もっと見る than just best friends

10. ジャスミン & Aladdin

They're higher than ムーラン & Shang simply because they 表示する もっと見る clearly that they're a couple, but my biggest problem with them...
