What’s in a Name? – Alice in Wonderland

12th December, 2011 - Posted by DisAnim - Comments Off on What’s in a Name? – Alice in Wonderland

It is commonly accepted that Alice is named after Alice Liddell, the daughter of Lewis Carroll’s friend (though there is some opposition to this notion).

The Cheshire Cat may be named after Cheshire, a county in England where Carroll was born.

Many of the other characters have names that aptly describe them, such as the Dodo (who is a dodo), the Queen of Hearts (who is seems to be the queen of the suite of hearts), and the Mad Hatter (who is a hatter that is crazy).
