It’s no secret that Disney has a major influence over what’s popular in today’s culture. In fact, some might even argue that Disney is pop culture.
From rides that have transformed into major film franchises to songs that will forever be stuck in our heads, Disney has been influential since Walt first began his animation studio. But now, Disney has influenced another part of pop culture — baby names!
This year, Mirabel is expected to rank sixth on the list of most popular names for girls among others like Hazel, Penny, and Olive. It’s a name of Latin origin that means “wondrous” or “of wondrous beauty” and is popular in many Latinx cultures.
If you’re not familiar, Mirabel is the main character from Disney’s new animated movie Encanto. She is an optimistic girl who is a down-to-earth problem solver — someone we think makes for a great namesake!
It’s no surprise that a name from Encanto would make this list, given how wildly popular it has been since its release. And, if you haven’t checked out Disney’s Encanto, what are you waiting for? Be sure to stick with AllEars for more Disney news and updates!
