So we know that Walt Disney actually wanted to name his mouse Mortimer. It was his wife, that suggested Mickey.
Cute name. Perhaps too cute? Can you think of any other famous Mickeys?
My brother named his son Michael. He chose Michael, because it was the name our mother almost gave him. He also chose it, because he was a huge Mickey Mantle fan. He wanted to call his son Mickey after Mickey Mantle. I always found that a little strange, because he was a Chicago White Sox fan, who hated the Yankees. He admired Mickey Mantle, though. It's funny. He never called his son Mickey. It was always and still is Michael.
So what other famous Mickey's do you know?
