User comments for Nala
(Already partially covered in name info) Nala (Sanskrit: नल) is a character in Hindu mythology. He was the husband of Damayanti and their story is told in the Mahabharata. Nala was known for his skill with horses and culinary expertise. His main weakness was gambling. He was possessed by the demon Kali.
Another famous but most likely completely unrelated to the former bearer is Simba's best friend (and future wife) from "The Lion King," which is significant given it holds the top spot for highest theater average gross in history. (
Nala is a female lion in the Lion King. She and Simba end up having a child together, Kiara.
Nala is the name of Simba's wife, but when the creators chose it, they intended it to be a made-up name that didn't mean anything. It just sounded pretty. The Sanskrit name is completely unrelated.
Halle Berry's daughter is named Nala. I think it's a very cute name, but I'd always associate the name with the lion king and I like a name to stand on it's own.
Nala was a main character in The Lion King Movies, best friend to Simba and later his pride mate.
