WDYT Of the name Maleficent for a girl?
“She’ll get bullied!” No she won’t. Maleficent is a good person. Besides people name their kids Gaston and Ursula.

Gaston is French, and Ursula is German. They were both common names well before Disney made those films.
If you're not a troll, and genuinely like the sound of Maleficent, then the French names Melisande and Melissaire might be good alternatives.

I think if Maleficent had been a name before the character was created, it would be fine, but the sole purpose of the name Maleficent was for an evil character, who has only been made to look better with recent movies. Maleficent surely is evil in the original text and she is DEFINITELY evil in The Descendants movies that are so popular with children these days. Maybe naming your child Satan is a better idea? After all, not everyone believes Satan is evil... If you immediately thought Satan is a bad name, then you can understand how a majority of people feel about Maleficent.
There are a myriad of choices of amazing names out there, some of which are similar to Maleficent. You could name her Millicent, which is a nice name that would fit in with the "old fashioned" names trend. You could also go with just Mal, like in The Descendants movies (Mal is Maleficent's daughter in those movies). Mallory and Malia are beautiful and similar names as well. You could name her Millicent and call her Maleficent as a nick name, which would be awesome!

It's okay for a evil cartoon character but not for a human.

I think your kid will 1000% get bullied. Gaston and Ursula are actual names, Maleficent is a word that means "causing harm or destruction, especially by supernatural means", which isn't a good meaning for a name

Gaston and UrsuIa are real names... "maleficent" is an adjective that means 'causing harm by supernatural means'

Yeah, the difference is Gaston and Ursula are NAMES. Ursula means "little bear" (in a feminine connotation) and is also a Christian name. Gaston is just French for guest. They're just names. The little mermaid could have just as easily been Ursula instead of Ariel or the prince been Gaston instead of Eric.
Maleficent is not a name. It's an adjective. You might as well name your kid "Toxic" or "Sinister"

Awful. Don't do it. Wasn't that the name of the evil lady in 101 Dalmatians?
