I named my baby after a Disney character like Molly-Mae – my friends and family hate it but I don't care | The Sun
A MUM who named her kids after Disney characters says she has no regrets – even though her friends and family don't like it.
Becky Roberts, 28, says she is Disney-obsessed, giving her kids names from The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.
The fairy-tale theme is the same one used by Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury in naming their new baby Bambi.
Much like Molly-Mae, Becky says she's had backlash against the Disney names but she doesn't care.
Becky Roberts, 28, revealed her Disney-themed baby names
The Berkshire mum named her little girl Kiara after the four-pawed princess in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.
Becky also gave Kiara the middle name Rose, as a tribute to her second-favourite film, Beauty and the Beast.
The Enchanted Rose is a mystical flower from the 1991 animated film, and is a trademarked symbol for the film.
Becky said people initially "turned their noses up at it", but the mum of one stuck firm and still loves Kiara Rose's name seven years after she was born.
Becky said: "While I was pregnant, I started a collection of Disney DVDs for my daughter to have on her shelf.
"When I was buying the DVDs, I started watching one a day while her dad was out working.

"After watching Lion King 2, I remembered my dad buying me a stuffed Kiara toy at the Heathrow Disney store when I was little.
"Her dad and I both fell in love with the name – I Googled it and found out it was similar to the Irish name 'Ciara'.
"But I wanted to spell it in the same way as Kiara from the movie.
"When she was born, we gave her a stuffed Kiara toy we found in America, as well as a toy rose from Beauty and the Beast.
Becky added that Kiara Rose "loves the movies now too!"
But while Becky and her then-partner "fell in love" with the name, the same couldn't be said for her friends or family.
She said: "A lot of people, like my family, turned their noses up at it and kept saying things like 'what sort of a name is that?'" she added.
"No-one really liked it apart from me and my partner.
"We knew it was going to be an unusual name from the start because people were quite shocked.
"The only other 'person' I've met called Kiara was actually a dog."
Luckily, Becky's parents developed an instant bond with Kiara as soon as she was born.
She said: "They finally agree it's an amazing name and it really suits her."
Despite losing the majority of Kiara's DVD collection while moving house, Becky is determined to spend as much money as she can on Disney-branded merch for her daughter.
She said: "Kiara Rose has loads of Disney toys and clothes – and she loves Disney+.
"In March, we'll even be taking her to the Disney store in London so she can spend all of her birthday money."
It comes after Molly-Mae removed comments from her Instagram baby name announcement after trolls slammed her for calling her daughter Bambi.
