Well, Mickey mouse was named Mortimer mouse by Walt Disney, but his wife disagreed. She wanted him to have the name Mickey Mouse, and so he was born.

Mickey mouse was created in 1928 and his original name was Mortimer Mouse.

There is another character called Mortimer, but he and Mickey are not related. (If you want to be technical, Mortimer Mouse is what Mickey's name used to be, but Mortimer was brought back later as a totally different character.) :)

Mortimer Mouse. His wife suggested Mickey Mouse would be a better name. There is a Mortimer Mouse, but, he's a less famous character.

The first Mickey Mouse cartoon was entitled Steamboat Willie and at first, Mickey Mouse was named Mortimer Mouse. Walt Disney's wife is said to have suggested the now famous name-change.

Mortimer was the name Walt picked for his new character. However, his wife Lily thought it sounded too pompous and suggested the mouse be called Mickey instead.

mickey was not a mouse

He was always a mouse, although he was initially named Mortimer. Mickey was created to replace the character of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and his first appearances bore a marked similarity to Oswald.

When Mickey Mouse was first created, his name was Mortimer Mouse. Mickey Rooney inspired Walt Disney, along with his wife, to change his name. It ended up being Mickey.

I assume this question is referring to the original name of the character? When the character was first created, his name was Mortimer Mouse. But Walt Disney's wife convinced him to change it to Mickey Mouse.

Oswald did not develop into Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse was created after a man bought Oswald from Walt Disney and Walt was not able to make more cartoons of Oswald. The workers who worked for Walt were hired from the man who bought Oswald from Walt so Walt was all alone. Then he created another character called Mortimer Mouse. After he showed his wife his new creation, she said that Mortimer was not a good name for a mouse so she said a better name was Mickey Mouse. So Walt named the mouse Mickey Mouse but his original name is Mortimer Mouse.

The first Mickey Mouse cartoon was released in 1928. It was a silent film called Plane Crazy. Later that same year, the first cartoon with sound, Steamboat Willie, came out (also featuring Mickey Mouse). Mickey was originally named Mortimer, but Walt Disney's wife Lillian, didn't think it fit. His name was changed to Mickey and Mortimer became is rival for Minnie.

Mickey Mouse's name was originally going to be Mortimer Mouse. Walt Disney wanted this name until his wife told him that the name was terrible, some say she called it effiminate, so she suggested the name Mickey to him. The rest is history

Mickey Mouse is his name. He was named by Walt Disney's wife; Lillian. Walt had originally thought his name should be Mortimer Mouse, but, Lillian preferred Mickey Mouse and that is what they named him.
