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.)

This is a serious article. Eyebrows frame your face so あなた need to have the right pair. I spend way too much time plucking and grooming my eyebrows so yeah, I think eyebrows are very aesthetically important. I noticed the results look a bit like my non-existent prettiest Princess 一覧 with a few exceptions of course.





13. Mulan
They are Asian looking alright, with the shape. I promise I don't have anything against big eyebrows but Mulan's kind of overpower her eyes and they look a bit untamed. They are definitely not bad, just comparing to the others. Shang has nice strong arched eyebrows though....

Forget about all of your opinions on Hans. Just for a 分 forget about any of his scheming または backstabbing that happens later in the movie. Imagine that あなた came into to this movie not expecting a villain, または at the very least expecting Elsa to be a villain. What would be the impression あなた would have of Hans?

My bet is that it would be almost the exact same as Anna's. In the first 時 of the movie, Hans gives no implication that he is anything other than what he appears. A kind, gentlemanly, slightly awkward young man who is looking for a sense of adventure and a way to escape the overbearing...

I was looking through my 記事 and realised I didn't have an 記事 in which I examined Ariel in depth. I decided to amend that によって 書く about a subject it's fun to think about - Ariel's ピンク dress.

Most ファン can agree (I think) that the dress looks quite bad on Ariel. There are several reasons for this: the sleeves are ridiculously puffy and makes her arms look misshapen and the shaping of the スカート looks... Odd. I just think it's too puffy and big in general.

Another 人気 reason for the dress looking odd is that a red hair/pink dress combo doesn't work:


However, I...

One of the best things about ディズニー princess films are their princesses(obviously) and songs. As a singer, 音楽 lover, and actor, I've always paid close attention to the voices that bring these wonderful characters and songs to life. I am picky about the voices I like but can admit that no princess has a bad voice, some are just much better than others. Share your opinions.
13. Snow White
Let me begin によって saying that I'm ranking both 歌う and speaking voices and that even though she's at the bottom, I don't hate Snow White's voice. Let's be honest here, most people find her voice to be annoying....

I was bored so I decided to write an 記事 about which princesses look like which greek goddesses, since I'm greek and I 愛 the Greek Mythology. Enjoy!

Hera- Jasmine

Firstly, Hera has a serious problem with her temper, like Jasmine.She likes getting revenge and even though we don't see ジャスミン as revengeful, I believe that if someone hurts her, she won't forget it so easily (besides Aladdin, she forgives him every time, like Hera forgives Zeus). Also, Hera protects women which means she's a feminist, again like Jasmine. Another common, is thei history with their husbands. Zeus...
