Jade Jeanes, 27, from Weston-super-Mare, said she originally wanted to call her daughter â€œBelleâ€ â€“ from Disney film â€˜Beauty and the Beastâ€™.
Instead, she opted for Disney â€“ the surname of company founder Walt Disney â€“ to mark her love for the iconic animated films.
Jeanes â€“ who struggled for seven years to conceive with husband Joshua â€“ has since defended her name choice after it was slated in a Facebook group.

Jade, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, said: â€œFriends and family love the name, and I do too. I just really like the name Disney.
â€œDisney is quite a personality. Her name suits her and her personality loads.â€
The group, called Mums the Word, allows users to â€œrateâ€ childrenâ€™s names with emojis â€“ and the name â€œDisneyâ€ received a lot of laughing and crying faces.
WhileÂ one might question why Jeanes decided to share the name choice on the public forum in the first place, she has now stated it is â€œno oneâ€™s businessâ€.
â€œItâ€™s no oneâ€™s business what we decided to call her, and I think thatâ€™s the way our generation is going to be honest.â€
She hopes that unusual names like â€œDisneyâ€ will become commonplace by the time her daughter reaches school age.
â€œThe hope is that by the time she goes to school with other children her age, her name will just blend in.
â€œOther kids will have unconventional names, we hope. We donâ€™t think sheâ€™ll have problems at school because of that.â€
Nor has the negativity response to Disneyâ€™s name deterred Jeanes, who â€“ continuing the animation theme â€“ said she would name a son after a video game character.

â€œâ€œI did think about naming [Disney] after a video game character,â€ said Jade, who used to work as a shop assistant at gaming store, Game.
â€œI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve come across any names from video games that were too â€˜out thereâ€™.
â€œIâ€™d love a son called Sonic.â€
Disney isnâ€™t the only polarising baby name. Awesome, Lucifer and Nun are among the more, letâ€™s say, unusual baby names chosen by Scottish parents last year.
Earlier this year, a mother opened up about her decision to name her child â€œBabyâ€.
