  • The fairies called her Briar Rose to hide her identity from Malificient. The King and Queen though named her Aurora.

  • In the original Grimm story, her name WAS Briar Rose, BTW. I have no idea where Disney got Aurora.

  • Her parents named her Aurora. The 3 fairies called her Briar Rose while she was being raised by them to keep her protected.
