Looking for a baby name? How about taking your inspiration from “Frozen?”

The website BabyName Wizard says that the hit Disney movie Frozen — which is already inspiring so many aspects of our culture — is now the source for lots of new baby names. Beyond just the names of characters in the film, Frozen has inspired a whole new interest in Nordic names for newborn kiddos. The site lists all of these choices as possibilities that you might not have considered — some of them are already pretty popular in Norway, but rare in the U.S.
