The best news is that it's likely that nobody will suspect you mined your favorite Pixar film for your baby's name (unless, of course, you name your baby Nemo). But even if someone suspects you watched Toy Story for baby name inspiration, who cares? It's your baby, and if you want an awesome Pixar baby name for him, then go for it. There is nothing wrong with getting baby-naming inspiration from a film, even if it's an animated one, and it will make a cute story to share with your little one when he gets older, too.
