Photos of the little girl were posed on Facebook and have since been reshared on Reddit.
The images show the baby in a hot pink swaddle and matching hat, laying in a bed decorated with flowers.
Her outfit is also topped with a pair of pink and gold sequined Mickey Mouse ears.
But her parents didn’t let the outfit be the only sign of their Disney adult status.

“Little Miss Aurora Maleficent,” the mom captioned the post.

On Reddit, commenters are shocked and horrified by the name.
“I love Disney and WDW as much as the next girl but man, Disney adults are something else,” wrote one.

“Disney adulting is a hell of a drug,” wrote another.
“This is cringy. This would be a fine name … for a cat,” wrote a third, while a fourth chimed in: “I thought this was a cat for a split second.”
“Ewww, no,” added another critic. “I love the name Aurora in a totally non-Disney way, but in this context, with that abomination of a middle name, it is pure cringe.”
Another said: “Aurora is a somewhat acceptable name, I’ve heard it in some languages, but Maleficent?

“Do these people not know English either?
“That wasn’t the original name of that character, it is a specific Disney addition that seems to be the combination between “malicious” and “magnificent,” and she is a SELF-PROCLAIMED mistress of all evil.
“That’s like naming her Cruella de vil, or Lucille Bleuth,” they argued.
The Redditor who posted the screenshot of the baby photos noted that some commenters on the original Facebook post pointed out the meaning of the middle name to the parents – who didn’t care.
“They replied saying the meaning doesn’t define their daughter and they chose it for the movie reference, not the meaning,” they said.
