Mickey Mouse was originally named "Mortimer Mouse" when the concept was conceived by Walt Disney in 1928.

Disney's wife suggested that the name was too pretentious, so Disney came up with Mickey Mouse instead.

Walt Disney revived the name a few years later, making a new character called Mortimer Mouse, who was Mickey's nemesis. Mortimer only appeared in one cartoon, named "Mickey's Rival," until his return in 2000.
