Disney Moms {Mother's Day 2017}

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, step-moms, grandmothers, and anyone who asks like a mom or has a motherly role! Today is a day to celebrate you! I am so lucky to have so many motherly people in my live, especially my mom. Moms are superheroes. In honor of Mother's Day I have a nice little posts about Disney moms. I love Disney and I love my mom so this post covers both.




Perdita- Lost in Latin 
101 Dalmatians 
Predita took in all the puppies that weren't hers and loved them. Growing up I always adored this movie and her relationship with the puppies. 



Coral- Coral in English 
Finding Nemo
Coral is only seen in the very beginning of the movie but it was such a touching scene. She tried to saved all her babies and sacrificed for them. 



Elinor- Bright, Shining One in English 
Brave
Elinor and her daughter do not have a great relationship mainly because her daughter is a teenager wanting to do her own thing. That causes tension and you see them fixed their relationship fixed and become stronger throughout the movie. 



Eudora- Good Gift in English
Princess and the Frog
Eudora is Tianna's biggest fan and supports her daughter's dreams even when it seems they won't work out. There is no better support than your mother's support. 



Mary- Sea of Bitterness, Rebelliousness, or Wished for Child in English 
Peter Pan 
Wendy and her brother are only seen with their mother at the beginning and end of the movie but you can see her personality in that little bit. She is loving and caring and everything you look for in a mom. 


Hera- Hero, Warrior, Period of Time, or To Be Chosen in Greek 
Hercules 
Hera is shown as a very loving and overprotective of Hercules. It seems that she only wants what's best for him. 



Nani- Beauty, Glory in Hawaiian 
Lilo and Stitch 
Nani is not your typical mom. She was Lilo's older sister who took on the role when their parents died. I loved watching their relationship grow and change throughout the movie. 



Kala- Art Form, Virtue in Sanskrit; Hawaiian Form of Sarah 
Tarzan 
Kala was Tarzan's adopted mother after his biological mother was killed. There aren't many adoption stories in Disney and there needs to be. 



Helen- Bright Shining Light  in Greek 
The Incredibles
Throughout the movie, you can see the motherly love that Helen has for her children. Everything she does id for them. 

These is just 9 Disney moms but there are so many more. What are your favorite Disney moms?

Names of the Week: Seth and Ivy

My original plan for today's post was to post names that were associated with nurses. After doing some research and coming up with a list I realized most of the names on the list did not have good associations. They were names of diseases or health issues. Since I try to only focus on positive aspects of names I started that idea but still said I wouldn't be able to share with you guys two names that I thought were a cool association to nurses. At least I am writing this wonderful posts. The two names are Seth and Ivy.



Seth has two meanings. The first is placed or appointed in Hebrew. In the Old Testament, Seth was the third son of Adam and Eve following the more well known Cain and Abel. A traditional spelling of Seth in Hebrew is Shet. The second one is pillar or dazzle in Ancient Greek. In Egyptian mythology, Seth was the god of chaos and the desert, where he was banished to after begin defeated by Horus. There are two variant spellings connected to the Egyptian origin, Set and Sutekh.

In 2015, Seth was ranked at #278, which is a decline from previous years. It was most popular in the late 1990s to the early 2000s when it was ranked in the top 100. I personally associate the name with the early 2000s but at the sam time don't think it is dated. For one it has always been in the top 1000, although so years it was at the very bottom of the charts.

Now a days the name can be associated with a few celebrities, including Seth Myers, Seth Rogen, and Seth MacFarlane, all of which are comedic actors or hosts. With the comedy connection there is a light, airy feel to it. Seth can be your friend and make you feel included.

As for the nursing connection, I thought Seth would be a perfect association to stethoscopes. Every medical professional has one and needs one to do their job. I know personally remember the day I bought my stethoscope and how excited I was.


Ivy is a plant and flower name meaning climbing plant that has yellow flowers in English. In Ancient Greece newlyweds were presented wreaths of the plant to symbolize fidelity. The Greek god, Dionysus, is often pictured wearing an ivy crown. He was the god of wine and people believed he taught the humans how to make wine. How is it connects to ivy? Ivy grow abundantly in the childhood home of Dionysus. Ivy branches were used to let people know that a tavern sold wine during the Middle Ages. There are many different species of ivy plants with many different meanings. The celtic meaning is connection and friendships because of its interweave in growth.

Ivy is one of the British beauties meaning that it is more popular in Britain than it is in the United States. Some of the British beauties, as I like to call them, have been popular in for a while in Britain. Right now in the United States Ivy is ranked at #129 and in Britain and Wales its ranked at #42. Australia loves the name even more seeing as its ranked at #15 over there!

There are many celebrity connects to Ivy. Beyonce and Jay-Z named their daughter Blue Ivy in 2012 causing a huge stir up. People loved or hated the name. There are also actresses, novelist, poets, and singers with the name. In pop culture, characters on many tv shows and in movies have the name including Gossip Girl, Downtown Abbey, and Batman.

As for the nursing association, I thought Ivy would be a nice association to iv solutions. Almost all patients have them and its a nice play on words.
