15 Baby Names Inspired by Uncommon Disney Characters

Faline is the love interest in Bambi. While the name is a play on the word “feline,” it doesn’t immediately sound like it. Faline sounds very French, which always makes a name sound a little bit cooler. And no one would suspect it’s from a Disney movie!
Gideon isn’t an entirely uncommon name, but it’s a very obscure Disney reference. Gideon the cat is a silent character in Pinocchio. He is the sidekick to Foulfellow the Fox. Despite the fact that it’s a fairly known name, it’s still not often heard.
