I was shocked by understanding that Snowwhite's 7 dwarves have DIFFERENT names in various languages :)

Love any of you to add the names in your own.

Let me start with the Italian names which for 47 years I thought were the TRUE ones :)

Pisolo,Dotto,Gongolo,Eolo,Mammolo,Brontolo,Cucciolo

Ciao
Bob

Alergico? lolz!

But Bob, I hate to disappoint you... the sven dwarves really have no names at all. Disney found those names, they're not named in the original fairytale.

The names of the Seven Dwarfs ("Bashful", "Doc", "Dopey", "Grumpy", "Happy", "Sleepy" and "Sneezy") were created for this production, chosen from a pool of about fifty potentials. Among them, "Awful", "Hoppy", "Weepy", "Dirty", "Cranky", "Hungry", "Sneezy-Wheezy", "Lazy", "Snoopy", "Goopy", "Wistful", "Soulful", "Gabby-Blabby", "Crabby", "Flabby", "Helpful", "Tearful", "Deafy", "Thrifty", "Shifty", "Nifty" and "Biggo-Ego".

To heck with that. I have a number of bumbling dwarves story and was searching for names Disney didn't copyright. That list is exactly what I needed. The dwarves in my stories are complete flakes, the kind you call in as handymen so they can destroy your house for you. That fits nicely.

bevissimo said 6 years ago 2/15/2008 11:01:20 AM EDT

I was in a travelling production of Snow White, so we talked a lot about it. A lot of people think the Disney names are synonymous with symptoms of Cocaine use.

Isn't that, like, a politically incorrect slur against handymen?
