Name inspiration can be found anywhere, even in Pixie Hollow, home of Disney’s Tinker Bell and her fairy friends.
The Main Fairy Characters
Tinker or a tinkerer was a term for a traveler that repaired small items. Tinker does have a bit of a quirky sound, similar to names like Timber or Piper. Bell, a word name and fairly popular surname, makes for a more familiar name choice. Tinker bell does make for an endearing nickname.
Rosetta is one of the many attractive forms of the lovable flower name, Rose. Rosetta is an Italian diminutive of Rosa. Only 49 girls were named Rosetta last year in the U.S.
Zarina sounds perfectly fit for a Princess and has the cool “Z” factor to it. Zarina is a Persian name meaning golden. Zarina rhymes with other lovely names such as Karina and Marina.
Vidia may be a form of Vidya, a Sanskrit name meaning knowledge, science, and learning. Vidia may also be a short form of Ovidia, a Romanian name sheep. Either way Vidia is unexpected and delightful.
Two pretty cool word names come together to create Silvermist. This name is definitely fairy-worthy! Silver is a lustrous color name with a hippie or rock star vibe.
Iridessa comes from the word iridescent, referring to luminous colors that appear to change colors when seen from various points of view. Fittingly, the word iridescent comes from the Latin word Iris, meaning rainbow. Iris could make a cool nickname for Iridessa.
Fawn is an animal name used to describe a young dear. Fawn was briefly in the Top 1,000 in the 1960s and 1970s but was only used by 19 girls last year. I think Fawn would make a great middle name choice.
Periwinkle can be a five-petaled flower with glossy leaves, though it is mostly known as a color in a blue and purple hue. Periwinkle comes from the Middle English word parwynke and would definitely be a whimsical way to get to the nickname Peri.
