Disney-inspired baby names… So hot right now!
Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen just welcomed a little girl named Briar Rose (aka Princess Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty) — just a few months after Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes became proud parents of their sure-to-be-gorgeous girl Esmeralda (aka the gal from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame.")
Of course, we can’t get into it without acknowledging that Holly Madison did the whole "naming a baby after a Disney character" first when she welcomed her little girl, Rainbow Aurora, in March of 2013!

While you run to the library (aka Wikipedia), we’ll be brainstorming some baby names. We’re thinking of naming our firstborn child Maleficent. Come to think of it, Rapunzel has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Perhaps the next Royal Baby will be called “Charming.”
