Which name to choose?

We are considering using Disney princess names to name our baby girl. Our list narrows down to 6 names, excluding weird names like Mulan..etc. This list includes the following from Wiki.

  1. Aurora
    Aurora, originally voiced by Mary Costa and animated by Marc Davis, is the 3rd Disney Princess. She is 16 years old. She first appeared in Disney’s 16th animated feature film Sleeping Beauty (1959). The motion picture is adapted from the French fairy tale The Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault (1697), from the German fairy tale Little Briar Rose (1812) by The Brothers Grimm and from The Sleeping Beauty ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1890). Aurora has hair of sunshine gold and lips that shame the red rose; she is often described as beautiful, kind, shy and sophisticated. She is also a hopeless romantic. At first, she is seen as a little naive and insecure as a result of being sheltered for most of her life but, unlike Snow White, she is somewhat pluckier and more opinionated. In later media, she is shown to have matured and become more self-assured, independent and confident. She was later voiced by Erin Torpey, and Jennifer Hale and is currently voiced by Kate Higgins.
  2. Ariel
    Ariel is the 4th Disney Princess, as well as the title character in Disney’s 28th animated feature film The Little Mermaid (1989 film), released in 1989. She is 16 years old and the youngest daughter of King Triton of his seven daughters. Ariel is a mermaid princess in the undersea kingdom Atlantica (according to later media in the franchise). Fascinated by the human world and tired of life under the sea, Ariel makes a deal with Ursula the sea witch, trading her voice in return for humanity. Based on the Danish fairy tale The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen, Ariel is voiced by Jodi Benson and animated by Glen Keane and Mark Henn. The character was inspired by the protagonist in Andersen’s story, but was developed into a different personality for the film. Ariel is fiercely independent and a dreamer, which is notable in her collecting of human world treasures in her private grotto. She is bold and a risk-taker. Ariel is distinguished by her bright red hair, purple/lavender seashell bra and green tail.
  3. Belle
    Belle is the 5th Disney Princess, first introduced in Disney’s 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991). She is 17 years old. Based on the heroine of the French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, Belle was created by screenwriter Linda Woolvertonand originally animated by James Baxter[15] and Mark Henn.[16] Originally voiced by Paige O’Hara, Belle is currently voiced by Julie Nathanson.
  4. Jasmine
    Jasmine is the 6th Disney Princess and the leading lady of Disney’s 31st animated feature film Aladdin (1992). She turns 16 by the end of the film. Jasmine is fierce, bold, and confident, and she rarely allows anyone tell her what to do and what not to do. Jasmine hungers for independence, tired of the restrictions laid before her by her father. She falls in love with Aladdin while he is disguised as a prince, after he takes her on a romantic ride on a magic carpet. Aladdin’s genie companion is summoned by Jafar, who uses the genie’s magic to tyrannically overthrow Jasmine’s father, the Sultan. Luckily, after Jafar’s defeat, the Sultan permits Jasmine to wed Aladdin despite his lack of royal heritage. Princess Jasmine is voiced by Linda Larkin and animated by Mark Henn, and her singing voice is provided by Lea Salonga (in the feature film) and Liz Callaway (in the direct-to-video sequel).
  5. Tiana
    Tiana, voiced by Anika Noni Rose and animated by Mark Henn, is the 9th Disney Princess character to be incorporated into the franchise, appearing in Disney’s 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog (2009). Her film is loosely based on the novel The Frog Princess by E. D. Baker, which is in turn based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale The Frog Prince. Tiana is portrayed as being a hardworking, ambitious, and beautiful young woman who has no love interest (at the start of the film). Living in New Orleans, Louisiana, Tiana strives to achieve her goal of opening her own restaurant (an ambition inspired by the accomplishments of real life restaurateur Leah Chase).[28] However, she is transformed into a frog after trying to break a spell cast by a Bokor on Prince Naveen that had changed him into a frog also. Throughout the film, the pair must embark on a quest to find a way to break the spell. Tiana was officially “coronated” and became a member of the Disney Princess line-up on March 14, 2010 at the New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan, New York.[29]
  6. Merida
    Merida is the 11th Disney princess, first appearing in the Pixar film Brave (2012).[2] Voiced by Kelly Macdonald, the character’s singing voice is provided by Julie Fowlis. She was created by director and screenwriter Brenda Chapman. Merida is the 16-year-old daughter of Queen Elinor, who rules the kingdom alongside King Fergus. Queen Elinor’s expectations of her daughter make Merida see her mother as being distant while also causing friction between the two. Despite Elinor’s desire to see Merida as a proper royal lady, Merida is an impetuous girl who wants to take control of her own destiny. She has honed her skill in archery, and is one of the most skilled archers ever seen. She is also skilled in sword-fighting and cross-country horse riding on her horse, Angus. Merida was “coronated” and officially became a part of the Disney Princess franchise on May 11, 2013 at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.[37]
