Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ daughter named after a Disney character?

We’re not sure if this was done on purpose or not, but TMZ has revealed Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ daughter’s name, and she could star in her own Disney movie.

There is much speculation regarding Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes‘ magical daughter (born just last month)… Like whether she will melt your eyeballs with her insane beauty or whether one hears a choir of angels when beholding her gorgeous little face. None of these rumours have been confirmed just yet, save one. We now know the baby’s name.

Everybody, meet Esmeralda Amada! Cue applause. You know who this reminds us of? You’ve probably guessed it…

Obviously Disney’s Esmeralda. Who else? Although Esmeralda was most likely named in homage to Mendes’ Cuban heritage rather than as a wink at a Disney classic, we’re going to ignore that. In case you were wondering, the baby’s full name is Esmeralda Amada Gosling — the couple has chosen to use Ryan’s last name for the child. We were kind of hoping for a hyphenated all-inclusive last name, but it didn’t pan out. The name was released by TMZ, which obtained Esmeralda’s birth certificate.

Gosling and Mendes have been dating since 2011. This is the couple’s first child. We’re kind of hoping the couple will have many more children and name them all after Disney characters. Is that bad? What do you think of the name Esmeralda?
