Dwarfs are a common theme in many fairy tales, and “Snow White” is no exception. The story of Snow White has been around since the 16th century, but Disney’s version of the tale became one of their most famous films in 1937. There are seven dwarfs in this movie: Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy and Dopey. What you might not know is that their names were actually based on English words for emotions: Doc was named after dour; Grumpy was originally called cross because he couldn’t be bothered with people; Sleepy (who never woke up from his deep slumber) got his name from sleepy and tired; Dopey came from dopey; Bashful from bashful. Happy got his name because he was always happy and cheerful, as well as Sneezy who sneezed a lot (thanks to allergies).
