Zazu Meaning “Movement”
Interestingly, the name Zazu is a traditional Hebrew girl’s name and is commonly used in Hebrew-speaking countries.
This name was likely a literal connection to being a bird capable of flight, surrounded by grounded lions.
Sarabi Meaning “Mirage”
Sarabi’s Swahili name means “mirage,” which could serve to explain how Scar viewed the Queen of the Pride Land as the ticket to becoming king, but ultimately led to his downfall.
She was Simba’s mother, Mufasa’s wife, Nala’s mother-in-law, and the former Queen of Pride Rock. She was voiced by Madge Sinclair. After her death, Sarabi was written out of The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride.
