Snow White is the main character in Disney’s animated film ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’
In this film, the character befriended animals and some local miners. She also met a handsome prince, who eventually saved her from an evil spell with true love’s kiss. This couple lived happily ever after, but some viewers wondered what this prince’s actual name was. (No, he never said his name during the movie.)
What is the name of Snow White’s prince?
Snow White doesn’t actually know the name of her rescuer, as he’s referred to as “the Prince” in this animated film. According to Disney Princess Fandom, though, this handsome character is actually named Prince Ferdinand (also known as Florian).
Several other Disney princes went nameless in their animated movies, only to be later named by the Walt Disney Company. That includes the love interest from Beauty and the Beast, who Belle calls “beast” throughout the film. It wasn’t until later that fans learned this character’s name is Adam.
Cinderella didn’t give her name when she first met her prince at the ball. This handsome prince did not give his name, either. Disney fans often refer to Cinderella’s prince as Prince Charming. According to Disney Fandom, Disney France revealed that this character’s name is Henry (or “Henri” in French).
