From the moment you find out the gender of your baby, your mind is swirling with anticipation, excitement, and probably a little nervousness, too. If you’re like me, when you discovered you were going to be having a baby boy, you couldn’t help but immediately picture him as a little prince. It’s hard to escape the allure of fairy tales with princesses, princes, magical creatures, and happy endings. That’s probably why there are so many wonderful Disney-Inspired baby boy names to choose from.
